BASELNEWS 2011A totally feminine timepiece: TUDOR Clair de Rose
TUDOR combines refinement and extreme attention to detail in a totally feminine timepiece. The new TUDOR Clair de Rose line is a hymn to feminine beauty. As its name suggests, it takes its inspiration from a world of reverie and moonlit nights and transports us into a unique delicate and sophisticated universe. The centre seconds hand in the form of a cut-out TUDOR rose lends captivating and infinite charm to the timepiece.
Roundness and softness come to mind to define its cushion-shaped case, its curving silhouette and domed sapphire crystal. The looped decorations harmoniously enveloping the winding crown are a subtle detail of jewellery design. The crown is topped with a transparent dome containing a rose, the logo of the TUDOR brand in the 1950s.
Softness also characterizes the cloud-inspired, stylized scroll motif on the motherof-pearl dial, applied using an elaborate procedure ; the rounded cut-out hands add yet another hint of softness. In the gem-set version, the central rose evokes a full moon in a starry sky. The fabric strap features the same scroll motif on a satin background, an extra touch of refinement. The triple fitting attaching the bracelet to the case adds a mechanical aspect and creates an unexpected contrast that enhances the piece.
The new TUDOR Clair de Rose comes in three sizes with a 26 mm, 30 mm or 34 mm case. Available in steel or in steel and 18 ct pink gold, this model comes with a vintage steel bracelet, a reinterpretation of the “rice grain” bracelets of the 1950s, or a satin or fabric strap. The mother-of-pearl dial, with or without gem-setting, is available in Sky, White, Jade or Tahiti Pearl.
