Graff Diamonds has proved once again, that it is a home to the most fabulous jewels in the world. British multinational jeweler’s latest item, Graff Princess Butterfly, uses the outline of a butterfly’s wings to create a feminine secret watch, which is available right now at select boutiques all over the world.
Secret watches have been fascinating women with their dazzling exteriors and amusing secrets. Popular from the 1930s-1950s, secret watches are being currently reimagined as a luxury statement of individual style. The $135,000 Graff Princess Butterfly is adorned with 23.14 carats’ worth of tapered baguette- and brilliant-cut diamonds. The wings of this timepiece are covered in diamonds pavé set on the surface of the wings, with tapered baguette diamonds on the edges. This transformable piece of high jewelry required advanced 3D technology to map the curves and contours of the wings.
A contour of tapered diamond baguettes defines the moveable elements that reveal and hide a quartz-driven 17 mm timepiece with a beautiful mother-of-pearl dial. It took Graf’s craftsmen a few months to design both the contours of the wings and the ingenious mechanism, which is hidden by the seven diamonds in the centre that conceal the dial of this secret watch. By pushing on one of the diamonds, the wings part seamlessly to reveal the secret watch.
The elegant look of Graff Princess Butterfly is completed by a satin strap. The all-diamond Princess Butterfly version comes with a bracelet created with four flowing interwoven bands of diamond-set 18-karat white gold. Notably, Graff has created eleven variations of this gem-set marvel.
