Whether solitary like the lotus or in clusters like the Arabian jasmine, flowers are a universal embodiment of delicacy. Above and beyond their apparent fragility, they convey the power of symbolism: the pristine purity of the lotus emerging from the waters of a dark pond; or the voluptuous charm evoked by the bewitching fragrance of jasmine.
The case of the Cat’s Eye provides an ideal setting for these two specifically chosen flowers. With its oval shape and pleasingly balanced proportions, it gracefully embraces the shape of the wrist, as do the curved lugs and domed crystal.
The mother-of-pearl dial of the Cat’s Eye Lotus features a guilloché rim. It draws the gaze to the very heart of the watch, where the mother-of-pearl is polished to heighten its shimmering effect. Adding a sense of depth and volume to this refined composition, the mother-of-pearl wave representing the horizon is slightly raised. It conceals a hand finely made from the same material and tipped with a lotus flower engraved and adorned with a miniature painting hand-crafted by an artisan.
