KERBEDANZ Florence

With this creation, Swiss luxury watch maker KERBEDANZ pays fine watchmaking tribute to the Renaissance.

The spirit of Florence, cradle of the Renaissance, breathes on this rare masterpiece of jewellery. The capital of Tuscany, a gentle region set in the heart of an Italy of dolce vita and genetic elegance, is at the heart of this watch by KERBEDANZ, available in a limited series of 68 pieces.

As a result of CDO Aram Petrosyan’s creative impulses, the Chief Designer Officer, four fleursde-lis set with sumptuous rubies, echo Florence’s coat of arms. These four flowering fleurs-de-lis, adorned with rubies as buttons, shine through the sunny decor of a hand-guilloché dial. Regular grooves reminiscent of the Marzocco’s mane, this proud lion holding under his right hind leg the Florence crest. Here and there, we always come across this animal in several places in the city. This lion symbolizes the popular authority that was then embodied by the Medicis family, of which Laurent so called Le Magnifique due to his great generosity, remains the most emblematic figure.

Born in 1449, Laurent de Médicis was in charge of Florence until his death in 1492. We owe him Florence’s reputation as the city of artists, since it was the cradle of the Renaissance and even today the city alone gathers 25% of Italy’s artistic heritage treasures, with its libraries, churches, palaces, gardens, bridges, fountains, museums, exhibition spaces and covered markets.
