Fabergé At Salon QP
Fabergé took part in SalonQP and showcased its latest gentlemen’s timepiece, Visionnaire DTZ
Fabergé returned to Salon QP, London, one of Europe’s most prestigious luxury watch exhibitions, showcasing the latest gentlemen’s timepiece, Visionnaire DTZ, amongst the shortlisted timepieces within the Travel Time category for the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2016.
The self-winding Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ uses a movement designed exclusively for Fabergé by Agenhor Manufacture. The model adopts a logical and intuitive method of displaying two timezones simultaneously, perfectly suited to the lifestyle of those who need to keep track of the time in a second, distant location. The hours and minutes of the local timezone are presented with peripheral, open-worked hands rotating around a raised, decorated dome located at the centre of the dial. The hour of the second, remote timezone is viewed through a remarkable aperture at the centre of the dome, optically amplified for a bold finish, a feature sure to surprise and delight. To create even greater animation and theatre to the dial, the collection features a dial side rotor, visible beneath the dial’s colour-matched sapphire crystal hour ring with applied indices. In true Fabergé spirit, Agenhor Manufacture created a peacock-shaped mechanic hidden within the movement, paying homage to Fabergé’s signature element of surprise.
