In search of precious time

Aesthetics, techniques. High watchmaking opens new horizons. Between tradition and fantasy. So that a dream becomes a possible utopia. And is close at hand, or better still, around the wrist
We’ll never know if Marcel Proust loved watches. 
He certainly valued time considerably. Especially “lost” time.
Today’s reality is quite the opposite, with the techniques of watchmaking companies being able to “fix” time, elegantly. As demonstrated by the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, a 18k yellow gold version of its timeless Oyster Perpetual, calibre 4130, with high precision blue Parachrom hairspring, tachymeter scale on the bezel with 36 diamonds and champagne colour chronograph counters on a black lacquer pavé dial. Charm is glorified, instead, by the Grand Lange 1 Moon phase 25th Anniversary, 25 examples in white gold, with silvered dial, blue numbers and moon disk in white gold, within a 3D starry sky.

But it is the gleam displayed by Graff Luxury Watches which emanates a bright trail of yellow-gold reflections along bracelets of uneven angles.
Hublot has electrified its Big Bang with the colours of the Paraíba Tourmaline, for the first time ever setting the most unique precious stone on a watch.
