This dazzling watch sparkles with Hindu-inspired symbols, an alluring divine name and striking colours: Surya. A pink flower similar to the sacred lotus, associated with the Hindi story of creation, unfurls its petals over the dial in the white gold case rimmed with 54 diamonds. Its petals are interspersed with triangular pink sapphires which echo the crown’s cabochon and calmly track the passage of time in a unique way: Between midday and midnight they transform from bright pink to pitch black. The minute indices lie in the midst of the petals like a flower head on a partially hidden fixed disc. This unusual display of jumping hours is brought to life by a self-winding mechanical movement inside the oversize case (42x52mm) which also provides a 50-hour power reserve. Price: 170,000 CHF (exc. VAT)
