SCHWARZ ETIENNE’s inaugural ladies’ watch is deliberate departure from the concept of adapting a men’s design to ladies’ proportions. The dial is animated by a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock designed as an openworked lattice that rests above a rotating disc. It is a subtle acknowledgement that women are as interested in the mechanics of a timepiece as they are in its aesthetics. The Fiji Floral seconds contains an automatic caliber with a remarkable 86-hour power reserve. It is decorated with a sunray pattern on the bridges and a guilloché motif on the balance bridge. The 38 mm case is stainless steel, constructed in three parts, including bezel, caseband and caseback, forming a capsule that is mounted with a separate cradle that incorporates the lugs. Dial colours include black or pale salmon, with drop shaped indexes and an Arabic numeral at 12 o’clock. The large crown is topped by a 0.02 carat diamond.
