The beauty of natureBASELWORLD 2016: Merry Go Round by newcomer OKLETEY
A new name in watchmaking, Okletey makes an impressive debut with Merry Go Round, an aesthetically pleasing flying tourbillon that takes nature's beauty as a source of inspiration, and uses forms, materials and nuances to great effect.
The rectangular steel case with black PVD treatment frames a silver dial, composed of a central circle with an original guilloché motif, itself surrounded by a skeletonised structure that echoes the graceful elegance of giraffes in the African savannah. The tourbillon, which takes pride of place at 6 o'clock, completes the picture. Sharing the dial is a power-reserve indicator at 9 o'clock and, at 11 o'clock, an opening that reveals the differential. Two other lines make up the collection, with an automatic chronograph and a three-hand automatic variation.
