Swarovski to unveil its first automatic watch for women

Jewellery and watch brand Swarovski has announced it will unveil its first automatic watch for women at Baselworld 2016.

The timepiece – named Crystalline Hours – was created in collaboration with watch designer Eric Giroud, and features a round face and curvy domed case containing some 4,000 tiny faceted crystals.

Nathalie Colin, creative director, said: “When we started the design phase, we wondered how to feature as many crystals as possible within such a limited space, without compromising on the understated elegance of the watch.

“We came up with this idea to reverse proportions and elaborate a transparent case which would allow a front and back view of both the movement and the crystals. I love the idea that not everything [gets] revealed at the first glance, it is more mysterious.”

Swarovski said the timepiece is inspired by watches created in the 1940’s, adding that it can be worn with a casual outfit or a “luxurious” evening one.
