It is fascinating to watch seven midnight blue hands travel across the dial of the maestro Phase de Lune Semainier, a new watch by Raymond Weil. Together they indicate the phases of the moon, the month, the week, the day, the date, the hours and the minutes. The features will excite those who like miniature mechanisations in their timepieces. Housed in a 41mm diameter, the maestro Phase de Lune Semainier has an automatic winding mechanical heart, generating a power reserve of 42 hours. The dial is mounted on a black crocodile-style leather strap.
D for dazzle
After experimenting with new material such as white and black ceramic in their D.Icon jewellery collection, Damiani, the luxury Italian jewellery brand, has extended its collection to white and pink gold. While the former ceramic versions had a diamond each with the letter ‘D’, the new D.Icon line-up sees full pavé diamonds in white or pink gold. Apart from rings, round earrings and bangle bracelets complete the collection.
With the weather taking a pleasant turn, gardens are in full bloom. Taking cue from their own green patches, Hidesign, a leather accessories brand, has launched its ‘Blue Nile’ collection of hand-painted bags and wallets. In this limited edition collection, the bags, made from vegetable tanned leather, have been hand-painted by a team of artists in the brand’s Pondicherry factory. With tan woven straps that exude an earthy finish, the bags are your perfect companion for a day around the town.
