Chopard has unveiled its latest Imperiale watch and jewellery collection at the Burj Al Arab in Dubai this week.
According to the brand, the watch collection was inspired by the Roman Empire, which can be seen through the usage of Roman numbers on the dial.
In addition, the curved hands of the watch symbolise the pointy daggers used by Roman monarchs in battle, and the shape of the lugs reflects their ancient columns, famous for their “perfectly balanced proportions.”
“The sheer wealth and finesse of its details make the Imperiale collection an eminently feminine model that echoes the spirit and the splendor of imperial classicism,” Chopard said.
The jewellery collection housed specifics from the Byzantine times, stated the brand, such as the purple colour, the era’s royal colour.
It was designed in arabesque motifs, with interlaced three dimensional rose gold lacework, encouraged by the embroidery of the cushions on which monarchs would place their emblems, Chopard said.fashion trends from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
