Braque Collection

The new Ernest Borel collection is inspired by the cubist art movement and its initiator, the artist Georges Braque. The warm radiance of pink gold suffusing the case, hour-markers and bracelet instils this timepiece with a subtle blend of classicism and creativity. The sunburst guilloché motif in the dial centre creates a sense of generous space and depth, while the diamond hour-markers represent a departure from standard conventions exuding a more impressionist vision. A cleverly executed interpretation of the geometry of shapes for a timepiece that is anything but ordinary.
