OLLIVIER SAVEO BUTTERFLY WATCH
Inspired by the vision of a butterfly posed on a cherry blossom, Ollivier Savelli’s aim was to transport the observer to a beautiful garden through these two symbols of ephemeral elegance, the Radiant Swallowtail and the Cherry Blossom tree. Ollivier studied over thirty different butterflies before selecting the most spectacular to immortalise in this unique and fascinating watch. The “Papilio Lorquinianus”, also known as Sea Green Swallowtail butterfly, is found in Indonesia, Java, Borneo and Sumatra. It is normally metallic black and aquamarine but transforms into a rainbow of colours when the light bounces off its wings as they flutter gently in a breeze. Each watch is a three dimensional panorama, displaying the interior from all angles. The sapphire glass case has been developed to allow natural light to shine from all angles on the watch mechanism. The curves in the glass avoid distortion yet retain an incredible degree of luminosity and transparency. This unique work of art takes two months to complete not including the design and research. It uses a fine Swiss Quartz movement and is also available with a Swiss mechanical movement according to the client's preference.
