In July 2011, the house has launched its new La Sirene 8-piece limited edition watch, which honored the royal wedding of Albert II, the Prince of Monaco, to Charlene Wittstock. The model’s name stems from the local Monaco nickname for the new princess.
The design of the new Ateliers de Monaco watch is inspired by the King Protea (Protea Cinoroides) - a national flower of South Africa, the motherland of Charlene. Characterized by a distinctive symmetrical form, the flower on the dial is set with light blue Topaz stones. Extremely popular with women, Topaz symbolizes trust, harmony and friendship.
The display of the new Ateliers de Monaco La Sirene watch indicates central hours, minutes and seconds. The functions are driven by a Swiss made automatic movement, which incorporates a silicium escapement and an engraved rotor. The mechanism is placed inside a 39mm 18-carat white gold case.
The new Ateliers de Monaco lady’s watch is attached to a dark-toned leather strap.
