The name Fabergé is associated with timeless luxury and class. So when Fabergé Horlogerie announced the unveiling of its latest timepiece, one expected the same standards of luxury and class. And definitely not disappointing in either, the latest timepieces, Palais du Temps models take your breath away. Drawing inspiration from the ornamental splendour of the great Romanov palaces, these beautiful models are set to make their debut at Baselworld next month. Featuring painted art dials and hand-worked guilloché enamel, these models echo the creativity and painstaking craftsmanship for which Fabergé is world famous for. The new additions to the collection include models like the Alexei Jardin Secret, the Alexei Jardin D’hiver, the Alexei Rotonde, the Alexei Pavillion, the Agathon Palais D’Or and the Anastasia Boudoir.
The Alexei Jardin Secret boasts of an exuberant art dial painted in clear, refreshing colors, on mother-of-pearl, depicting a beautiful secret garden. The Alexei Jardin D’hiver with its light gold rococo scrolls on a matt white or lavender-grey painted dial depict the scenic winter gardens while the Alexei Rotonde depicts the architectural grandeur of the palaces with its ornamental dials on a face of gold rococo scrolls unfurling over the matt white or lavender-grey painted face.
The Agathon Palais D’Or which is decked in diamonds to depict the grandeur of the palaces, on is named after Peter Carl Fabergé’s younger brother, a creative force in the House of Fabergé. However my personal favourite is the Anastasia Boudoir an exquisitely elegant lady’s watch. Named after the youngest daughter of Nicholas and Alexandra, this timepiece features a dial of hand-worked guilloché enamel.
Exquisite and endearing, each new model takes forward the elegance, class and luxury that is associated with Fabergé.
