Fabergé timepieces embody the characteristic perfectionism and panache pioneered by Peter Carl Fabergé, who ingeniously incorporated clocks, and occasionally watches, into his rich repertoire of jewelled objects and personal possessions. Today, the tradition of Fabergé timepieces continues to evolve through collections of hand-made watches, exquisitely fusing the past and the present, artistry and craftsmanship, and deploying the finest materials, techniques and components.
The graceful oval of this 18 carat rose gold Anastasia watch is highlighted by the bezel set with 48 internally flawless diamonds, and by the diamond-set rose gold crown. The golden shimmer of the dial is created by expert guilloché engraving, overlaid with hand applied opalescent enamel. These techniques recall the enchanting milky opalescent enamel that decorated so many of Peter Carl Fabergé’s original timepieces. The satin strap is fastened with a gold butterfly buckle. The dial is 29x25,50 mm diameter, and the quarzt movement from F1601 (base ETA 976.001).
