Gift a one-of-a-kind timepiece

Gift a one-of-a-kind timepiece

The ultimate romantic watch, Marguerite turns loving passion into the stuff of intimate daydreams. In addition to the Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the dial presents a second display. One press on the pusher at 2 o’clock makes the numbers disappear to reveal the phrase: “Il m’aime passionnément” (He loves me passionately). This message can be personalized via a configurator on the brand website. The watch can display any message requested by the owner, in the desired language (Latin, Cyrillic, Arabic or Chinese alphabet), with a limited number of characters. Releasing the pusher makes the hour display reappear instantly.

In developing this optical illusion game, Christophe Claret drew inspiration from the famous “Wow!!” magic trick, which has never before been incorporated into a watch. The changeover of the two dials is achieved by superimposing two disks: the metallized transparent sapphire upper disk bearing a mosaic of transparent squares rotates over the fixed mother-of-pearl lower disk overlaid with another pad-printed black or blue varnished mosaic incorporating the text and the numerals.
