The Lady Fabergé collection has been expanded with these new pieces that combine a youthful, pop style with a prestige mechanical movement. Fabergé is the brand famous for the eggs made for the Tsar of Russia, and so the egg motif appears in several places: the shape of the case, the Breguet hands that have oval rings instead of the usual circular apertures, and a domed watchglass, a hallmark of the brand’s watches. The crown is finished with a moonstone, 0.16 carats. The lacquer dial is nicely coordinated, with a central portion in a colour identical to the strap, and an external ring in a slightly different shade, into which the Roman numerals are laser-etched. The 36 mm case has a caseband in the same colour as the dial. The lugs are slender and curve inwards to hold a fairly narrow feminine strap, in alligator with gold pin buckle.
The movements are self-winding Vaucher 3000 calibres, with an oscillating weight decorated in the Fabergé house style. They are in 22-carat gold, and so create an attractive contrast with the simplicity of the dial. The movement runs at 4 Hertz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and has a power reserve of 50 hours.
The watches have prices starting at $14,000. More information from www.faberge.com
