The Graff Princess Butterfly Allows Time To Fly In A Unique Manner
After taking everyone by surprise at Baselworld 2016, the wonderful Graff Princess Butterfly has been released in select retail outlets all over the world just a couple of days ago. Graff’s designers, jewelers, and watchmakers have achieved the impossible with this timepiece, designing a lifelike butterfly comprising 23.14 carats’ worth of tapered baguette- and brilliant-cut diamonds – not an easy task, we assure you.
To transform this amazing idea into a 3D, highly sculptural creature takes vision, skills and a lot time. The precious gemstones define this butterfly’s wings, which move to reveal a graceful quartz-driven 17 mm timepiece. I was raised to believe that only nature could surprise us with such exquisite perfection, but it seems Graff can do it as well.
This timepiece is an interesting mix of opulence and simple, natural beauty, with a graceful design which took hours and hours to build. Each curve and contour has been refined over and over again, to ensure a flawless execution, leaving the gems to completely overwhelm anyone who dares to take a closer look to this watch.
Four flowing interwoven bands, made of 18-karat white gold and set with even more diamonds, will allow this exquisite jewel to adorn your wrist – once you pay at least $135,000 to get your own Princess Butterfly. We doubt anyone thinks about money once they get a glimpse of this extraordinary tribute to beauty and style.
