he Lady Compliquée Haute Horlogerie ladies’ collection upholds Peter Carl Fabergé’s tradition of surprise and meticulous execution with a new and spectacular time display which won the prestigious 2015 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) – the Swiss watchmaking industry’s highest honour – in the ‘High-Mechanical’ category.
The highly original display of the collection features a fan at the heart of the watch; it thus perpetuates the ingenious and freethinking spirit of Peter Carl Fabergé. The Lady Compliquée Peacock pays homage to the famous “Peacock Egg” of 1908, and in addition to the gem-set models embellished with rubies, emeralds, black sapphires, diamonds and Paraiba tourmalines, the collection now offers a new, stylish black lacquer variation for a contemporary, everyday timepiece. Hours are read at the winding crown, off the disc that rotates counter-clockwise. The minutes are read off the fan as they unfurl each hour, only returning to zero when the lead fan reaches 60.
