Beauregard Dahlia

Beauregard Dahlia is a Swiss made high jewellery watch for women. The watch takes its design inspiration from the beautiful and elegant Dahlia flower.

Founded by Alexandre Beauregard and based in Geneva, the Beauregard watch brand offers exceptional Swiss timepieces of highly original design, set with sublime stones that are hand-polished in its Montreal atelier and offer as pieces unique.

This watch collection pays tribute to the sophisticated and sumptuous nature of dahlias. Substantial yet delicate with the complex layers of petals creating strength and volume, the dahlia watch by Beauregard has a wonderfully varied colour palette suggesting countless possibilities for the choice of polished gemstone ‘petals’ that surround the watches’ dials.

This feminine wristwatch houses a central flying tourbillon mechanical movement that was developed specifically for Beauregard and is entirely made and assembled in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

Offering 65 hours of power reserve, the self-winding movement is equipped with two barrels and a bi-directional, ball-bearing-mounted rotor. A highly refined arrangement of open-worked bridges and a hand-polished rotor segment echo the floral richness of the watch face. Under the domed sapphire crystal, the tourbillon cage is formed from hand-polished gold petals that echo the shape of the gemstone petals on the outer dial, as well as the open-worked hour and minute hands.

Every one of the 48 petals in mother of pearl on the dial is sculpted and polished by hand, each in a precise shape and size, to respect the tolerance of a mere .02 millimetres allowed by the setting technique. The invisible mounting, specially devised for the design, is underpinned by complex engineering.

Beneath the polished-stone petals, 144 diamonds draw light into the dial, adding intensity to the coloured stones. Measuring 38mm diameter the watch case is set with 330 diamonds. The crown reminds us a flower bud, with a cabochon stone at its centre. Elegantly curved lugs ensure that the watch is a comfortable fit for every wrists size. The hand-made leather strap is attached by a white gold folding clasp set with 124 diamonds.
