The watch-making house Sultana is delighted to unveil its seductive novelty, bestowed with an evocative name - Galatea. Extremely graceful and trendy, the lady’s watch is inspired by an exciting love-story.
Galatea, a sea-nymph in Greek mythology, was in love with Acis, a young shepherd. The monstrous one-eyed Polyphemus was also in love with the goddess. Unable to control his jealousy, he killed Acis with a huge rock. The shepherd’s blood formed a small stream on the ground. Desperate, Galatea turned it into a stream of water and named it Acis.
Inside this romantic creation is a self-winding movement, which offers the functions of hours, minutes, seconds and date.
The watch’s mechanism is housed in an ultra-modern rectangular case, which demonstrates a see-through back. Sculptured in stainless steel, the watch case features the dimensions of 32mm x 44 mm. It is assembled with a curved sapphire crystal, which serves to protect the dial. The dial of the Sultana watch reveals a classic guilloche centre with bright rays, performed in the shape of wavelets.
The dial of the Galatea watch is available in two versions: a black interpretation, completed with Arabic numerals, and a silver white one, equipped with Roman numerals. Another hallmark of the dial is a direct-drive centre seconds-hand. The date is displayed through a date aperture, located at 6 o’clock.
The remarkable Sultana Galatea watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is secured to the wearer’s wrist on a stainless steel bracelet, fitted with a butterfly clasp.
