The DeLaneau Romantic Time unique watch conveys an illusion of suspended time, an exchange between two people without the need for words, symbolized by a bouquet of pink roses.
The design, the choice of colours and the gracefulness of the diamonds strengthen this idea of lightness and serenity. Looking at the dial, one could almost imagine a budding love affair or an adolescent romance. Everything in this timepiece is innocent and tender, just like a bouquet of pink roses given to a loved one to express feelings of affection.
To capture this image, the brand’s artisan enamellist chose the grisaille method on a base of pink enamel. This technique presented the unique challenge of highlighting the contrasts on a very pale-coloured base.
The enamellist felt that she had to force them out of the pink enamel – something that seemed to be in total contradiction with the soul of the creation itself. The result is a delicate balance between the enamel and the fire, which reminds us of a relationship with a loved one – where acceptance and sharing are central to harmony.
This delightful timepiece is housed in a white gold Dôme case set with 297 diamonds and features a diamond-set crown. The timepiece also has an automatic movement and an alligator strap with a white gold deploying buckle set with 24 diamonds.
