The inspiration behind the new Borgeaud watch is Panchang, an Indian calendar, used by millions of people all over the world. It divides day and night time in eight parts of about 90 minutes. The fact is that seven of them are perfect for activities, which require certain decisions. The eighth, however, is unfavorable.
With this horological novelty, the brand grants a female user an opportunity to determine these 90-minute periods, including the period most appropriate for relaxation. This last-mentioned function is performed by three petals of the lotus flower on the dial. Responsible for the color of each petal is a rotating disc. The disc serves as the base for the quartz BRG Q1051 movement.
Alongside with this innovative feature, the new Borgeaud Septagraph Ladie’s 8795 watch displays central hours, minutes and seconds. The functions are presented on a white mother-of-pearl dial. It is embellished with rubies, diamonds, sapphires or emeralds, serving as hour-markers.
The dial is gently encircled by a plain or diamond-studded bezel. The latter is incorporated in the structure of a 40mm white or rose gold case. At 3 o’clock, it features a diamond-set winding crown.
The new Borgeaud lady’s watch is teamed with a hand-stitched alligator leather strap, performed in a variety of colors. It is finalized by a deployment buckle.
