A blue dream: RAYMOND WEIL Lady Maestro Phase de Lune
Looking at this watch is like staring at the sky in the middle of the night: the deep blue colour of the hands, the numbers or the alligator leather strap is the canopy decorated with 68 stars, the diamonds on the bezel and the highlight is the moon, the mother-of-pearl dial with guilloché decoration at its centre. The moon phase indicator at six o’clock is enforcing this impression.
I see it as a beautiful timepiece specially crafted for the queen of the night! Ladies, how do you feel about this watch?
In 2013, the Lady maestro Phase de Lune is raising eyebrows. For the first time, the Swiss watchmaker is offering ladies a watch with complications. And what more feminine than a moon phase? The Lady maestro Phase de Lune now completes RAYMOND WEIL’s principal collection and displays the passage of time by means of its night star.
The moon truly symbolizes the feminine. The Geneva Company has always been keen to honour women and, to demonstrate this, has introduced a ladies’ moon phase. From the aesthetic point of view, as member of the maestro collection, this latest addition to the RAYMOND WEIL range enjoys the Brand’s patented system of pushers integrated in the case. These adjust the date at 4 o’clock and the moon’s position at 8 o’clock.
Equipped with a 36mm polished steel case, set with 68 diamonds, the Lady maestro Phase de Lune exhibits blue hours on a white mother-of-pearl dial. In its centre a sunray guilloché decor makes room for the moon phase at 6 o’clock. The hours, minutes and seconds hands are also blue and feature the most classic of watchmaking designs. A fourth hand indicates the date, tracing a lunar arc. Finally the varnished, royal blue, alligator strap matches the stone in the crown at 3 o’clock.
Harmony and complication go hand in hand, making this watchmaking piece the most brilliant star of the night.
