SR WATCHES | OCTAGON

THE SHAPE OF ETERNITY

STEFANO RICCI presents its first range of fine timepieces: Octagon. Featuring a Perpetual Calendar, Annual Calendar and Chronograph, the eight-sided statement design showcases the spectacle afforded by time itself. Each watch is made in a series of just 10, with this limited edition also adapted for the Diamond Lux Limited Edition versions encrusted with diamonds. Stefano Ricci draws on the architecture of the Baptistry, the Cupola of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Tribune of the Uffizi in Florence for inspiration. All have octagon floorplans, whose equilibrium made it the perfect shape to represent the STEFANO RICCI company and its design. The case is made of white gold.

“Diamond Lux” Limited Edition

Each model features an exquisite version produced in a limited edition of just 10 pieces. The gemstones and the setting are hand-picked by the ateliers of STEFANO RICCI in Fiesole. The master goldsmiths create a unique composition of diamonds distributed on the parts of the watch, including the octagonal bezel, the eight trapezoid-section elements, and the buckle, which is also octagonal. The princess cut makes for highly faceted diamonds that display exceptional luminosity and brilliance.

 

THE ENGRAVINGS

Attention to detail is also found on the watch back, engraved by master craftsmen using the inglesina, or “English Scroll”, technique which enhances the artisan workmanship. Lines and dots create floral themes in a marked, fascinating contrast of light-and-shade effects. STEFANO RICCI has opted to transfer similar savoir-faire to the rear cuvette of his watches, which is hinged on the back. A fully-fledged work of art which ensures every single watch is highly customised.

THE SR WATCH CASE

As Stefano Ricci himself says, Florence is “my love and my soul”. Octagon reflects the magnificence of Florence, and the case of his timepiece is every bit as stunning. The octagonal shape is honed from mighty Californian briar-root wood, with an elegant touch afforded by a European graft in the composition, worked by hand by skilled Florentine craftsmen. The watch takes centre stage, propped on a suede and crocodile cylinder. The little box of wonders contains a travel case for the watch, and a document holder, both in crocodile.
