A new brilliance to the jasmine collectionBASELWORLD 2014: A tribute to the heroine of the Puccini opera Turandot

Voluptuous and delicate, the new jasmine has adorned itself with its most beautiful features in order to shine among the flowers of this truly feminine collection. Refined, elegant, gracious, three words that echo to evoke this watch as a tribute to the heroine of the Puccini opera, Turandot, whose splendour is associated with the beauty of the jasmine. RAYMOND WEIL does not forget what has always been its inspiration, music.

An ode to femininity and poetry with its inspiration, both musical and floral, this 35mm timekeeper displays its charms in a combination of diamonds, mother-of-pearl, steel and rose gold PVD. Altogether there are no less than 113 diamonds, subtly adorning this new jasmine. Its case and horns sparkle with a thousand fires, harmoniously blending with the mother-of-pearl, which now embellishes the dial, where a jasmine flower blossoms. Blued, leaf-shaped hands evoking the blue sapphire dome of the crown sweep over the Roman numeral indexes.

The date is delicately emphasized by a rose gold border at 3 o’clock. The two-tone steel and rose gold PVD plated bracelet, also set with diamonds, subtly hugs the wrist. Equipped with a mechanical automatic winding or quartz movement, depending on the version, this watchmaking jewel embodies both the know-how of the Swiss Brand and the beauty of the flower whose name it bears.

With its bewitching beauty, this veritable piece of jewellery will appeal to women who appreciate elegance and exclusivity. There is no doubt that this symphony of diamonds will bring a new brilliance to the jasmine collection.
