The Rose-Gold Octea Sport Watch

Purple is a color trend which features in Swarovski’s Fashion and Jewelry collections for Fall/Winter 2011-2012. For this season, Swarovski presents two striking timepieces linked to this color theme and, in addition re-interprets one of its most popular designs in an enticing rose-gold color shade.

These watches will form part of the company’s latest watch collection and are available in Swarovski boutiques worldwide.


Since its first watch collection was launched at Baselworld in 2009, Swarovski has created exceptional timepieces that are full of character. These include the “D:Light” watch, winner of the 2010 Red Dot Award for Best Product Design and now available as a Limited Edition in rose-gold;  and the “Elis”, a striking piece in Crystal Mesh that truly captures the essence of the Swarovski brand.

Swarovski has now revisited an iconic watch that has become a fixture in all collections – the “Octea Sport” – and introduces it in plated rose-gold. Already available in a wide variety of shades (white, black, orange and red), the watch now reaches new heights of elegance in the rose-gold version. No woman could resist the enchantment of this truly unique time-piece.

The beautiful design and flawless mechanism of the original have been reproduced in the new edition of this exceptional timepiece. The rose-gold-plated “Octea Sport” combines stylish colors with the finest materials, and uses contrasting rose-gold and black crystal resulting in a stunning effect..

The faceted Jet Hematite crystal bezel rotates in one direction only. Beneath the anti-reflective sapphire watch glass, the luminescent hands glide over each index and Arabic numerals, all of which are hand-applied in rose-gold plating.
The date indicator is placed at the three o’clock position, not far from the Swarovski emblem: the rose-gold-plated Swan Logo Mark adorns the dial, which features a metallic black sunray pattern and matt black outer ring. The Swan Logo Mark also appears on the rose-gold-plated crown with glass cabochon – a luxurious finishing touch to the sophisticated look of this piece.

The impressive 39 mm rose-gold-plated case protects the ETA watch movement, making this watch a perfect combination of functionality and aesthetic design. The faceted strap attachments, the faceted buckle, the customized back with engraved Swanflower® motif – these are the precious, refined details that make this piece so recognizable and unique.

Complementing the bezel, which is created from a single piece of “Soleil” cut crystal, six Jet Hematite crystals have been set by hand in the watch strap, and their perfect facets punctuate the tone-on-tone rubber. 

The rose-gold-plated “Octea Sport” is a skilful blend of elegance and understated luxury, making it the latest manifestation of Swarovski’s core values: creation, innovation and perfection.
