Baselworld - The new Caprice watch joins the Precious Elegance collection from Century, dedicated to exceptional timepieces.
Caprice invokes the spirit of the 1930s, the strong lines of Art Deco, the buzz of parties where artists and writers mingled with beautiful people.
The brooch, emblematic of jewellery from that era, becomes a glittering guest of honour on this new watch, represented by the bracelet attachments, each decorated with a veritable piece of jewellery set with diamonds. The sleek design, dynamic flowing lines and sharp angles of this watch are a stylish tribute to the architectural masters of that time.
This choice is perfectly aligned with the quality of Century sapphire, an everlasting, scratch-resistant material, here in a cool palladium shade. Every facet on its octagonal shape – in reference to the lucky number eight – has been cut and polished entirely by hand, by master craftsmen, to complement the shimmering dial in white or ivory mother-of-pearl and to intensify the dazzle of dozens of brilliant-cut diamonds set around the edge.
The alligator strap, available in black or brown, or the gold bracelet in Milanese mesh - a time-honoured technique conceived by Italian goldsmiths during the Renaissance - ensures unrivalled smoothness and comfort on the wrist.
Jewellery and watchmaking craftsmanship have been guiding the history of CENTURY for almost fifty years. With knowhow in sculpting and cutting sapphire cases, the CENTURY brand offers uncompromisingly contemporary timepieces – using the most traditional crafts.Find out more
