Hysek - Kalysta "Joaillerie d’Art"

Hysek Kalysta "Joaillerie d’Art"

Dressed in diamonds from the dial to the strap, this unique piece by Hysek draws its inspiration from a Chinese legend featuring two lovers turning into butterflies.

Inspired by the grace of the butterfly’s flight, the Kalysta line-up has been built from a compilation of tales, for some exotics and for others wintry. Newcomer in this collection, the Kalysta “Joaillerie d’Art” Precious Tale evokes the metamorphosis of Liang Shanbo and Zhu Yingtai, the Chinese legend’s lovers, in butterflies.

Those two butterflies, made of 8 baguette-cut diamonds each, spread their wings in the lush foliage of diamonds decorating this unique piece’s bracelet. Playing with the duality of lightness and stiffness, jewellery flexibility and watchmaking structure, Hysek has hemmed this interlacing of diamonds by two gold ribbons covered with smaller stones, in a snow-setting style.

Those floral scapes are running through the case in two vegetal compositions mixing gold petals set with brilliant-cut diamonds or with hand-engraved frosty quartz, marquise-shaped diamonds flower buds and a fine foliage in mirror-polished gold. This sparkling dial is housed in a receptacle of feminine proportions - 39mm diameter - with serti neige style setting adorned with an arrangement of diamonds of decreasing diameters.

Like the other pieces in the collection, this timepiece is powered by the HW61 calibre, its exclusive, 100% manufacture automatic movement boasting a 39-hour power reserve. At 12 o’clock, a dedicated window displays jumping hours, meanwhile the minutes are denoted by means of a blue marquise sapphire that travels around the jewelled bezel to mark out the time. At 3 o’clock, a white gold ring, clad with a double diamond, swivels on the crown set with a moon-stone cabochon.

Alchemy of technicity and preciosity, the Kalysta "Joaillerie d’Art" Precious Tale is a unique piece coming in 18K white gold set with 3220 diamonds for a total weight of 19.58 carats. An interchangeable strap system allows the watch to be also worn with a satin or leather strap. Moreover, a brooch, available on request, completes this jewellery set and offers, thanks to the interchangeable system, the option to alternatively convert this adornment into a blazer ornament, a jewellery bracelet or a watch.
