The particularly graceful new Graff Floral watches feature bouquets inspired by the lush gardens of the Delaire Graff vineyard estate owned by the Graff family in South Africa. Working entirely by hand, the artisans craft the petals from white gold and coat them with several layers of enamel before enhancing them with painted finishes. Each dial represents a unique work of art and calls for over 50 hours of craftsmanship. The result is all the more charming in that three of the flowers, respectively positioned at 1, 8 and 10 o’clock, perform a fascinating choreography by perpetually spinning on their axis. The collection comprises four models representing the various personalities of today’s woman: bouquets in shades of blue, pink, purple and white rest gently on matching mother-of-pearl backgrounds and are swept over by leaf-style hands harmonized with the splendid tableaus thus created. Graff Floral watches also give pride of place to diamonds, the jeweler’s specialty, which sparkle in abundance on the dials, bezels, casebands, lugs and crowns. These timepieces can be ideally paired with the Maison’s many floral-inspired jewelry creations.
