Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

The orig­i­nal Vi­vianna was de­signed by Vi­vianna Torun Bülow-Hübe, one of Swe­den’s most im­por­tant twen­ti­eth-cen­tury sil­ver­smiths. She was also a mas­ter jeweller and cer­tainly the first fe­male sil­ver­smith to at­tain a de­gree of in­ter­na­tional fame. She cre­ated the Vi­vianna for an ex­hi­bi­tion at the Musée des Arts Dé­co­rat­ifs at the Lou­vre, which had a mir­ror-pol­ished dial with no num­bers and just a sec­ond hand. The ban­gle bracelet is a stiff ex­ten­sion of the case and does not close com­pletely, rather leav­ing an open­ing on the out­side of the wrist.
