What if butterflies, with the flutter of their wings, could tell us the time? The dream is transformed into reality by the Maison with the Butterfly Symphony timepieces. Two precious butterflies in mid-flight indicate the time with tenderness. Thanks to a retrograde movement, one butterfly indicates the passing minutes while the other keeps pace of the hours.
The Pursuit of True Love
Upon the break of dawn their voyage begins, separated by the enormous tree they glide almost imperceptibly, playfully weaving in and out of the maze of foliage.
They yearn for the moment when the sun reaches the highest point in the sky when the colors change from light blue to burning fire.
Noon is the first moment for each of the butterflies to steal a quick glimpse of one another. Both are overcome with a moment of pure tranquility, the forces of emotions make everything seem invisible.
As dusk slowly rolls in, the ominous presence of night begins to take form.
Midnight strikes and the butterflies glisten and sparkle with shear bliss against the deep mother-of-pearl iridescent midnight sky. They reunite once again in full glory, finally able to witness pure and flawless beauty.
They impatiently wait for the next moment when they can rejoin, till then they playfully flutter under the protection of the glorious tree.
