GI­RARD-PER­RE­GAUX CAT’S EYE LA FENICE

Golf Asia - - LUXE TIMEPIECES -

The op­por­tu­nity of at­tend­ing an opera at La Fenice nat­u­rally com­mands re­spect for a cer­tain dress code. Be­ing finely at­tired is an in­te­gral part of the plea­sure pro­cured by such an evening. The Cat’s Eye La Fenice is en­tirely in tune with this fes­tive mood, glit­ter­ing with more than 200 emer­ald-cut di­a­monds of ex­cep­tional qual­ity. The dial fea­tures a splen­did decor com­posed of 83 emer­ald-cut di­a­monds (ap­prox. 3.97cts), along with 10 bril­liant-cut di­a­monds (ap­prox. 0.21ct). The emer­ald cut was ini­tially de­vel­oped for the epony­mous gem, which is sub­ject to in­clu­sions that make it frag­ile to work with. The rect­an­gu­lar shape of the oblique cor­ners pro­tects it from me­chan­i­cal stresses. The emer­ald cut also mag­nif­i­cently suits di­a­monds, high­light­ing both their ra­di­ance and their trans­parency. On this model, the set­ting of the dial and case has been per­formed us­ing the “Clou de Paris” tech­nique and cre­ates a mir­ror-type ef­fect that mag­ni­fies the fiery glow of the gems. The Cat’s Eye La Fenice comes with an ad­di­tional black al­li­ga­tor leather strap se­cured by a buckle set with 14 bril­liant-cut

di­a­monds.
