Artistic, creative and historic: the new ladies’ watch by Robert & Fils 1630 is aptly named “La Dentelle”
For the “Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2019”, the historic brand Robert & Fils 1630 is presenting “La Dentelle,” an original ladies’ watch crafted with great attention to detail and creativity, like a fine lace bracelet.
Made from exclusive manual-winding vintage movements “Robert calibres” from the 1960s or 70s, which have been completely restored by hand in 2018, this watch is designed in the Art deco style, and crafted in rose gold, set with diamonds. But, most importantly, “La Dentelle” attests to this blend of tradition and modernity with its inventive hand-woven bracelet. Wide, feminine, lacy and adorned with jewellery, the bracelet evokes innovation and elegance, leaving some space at the back to admire the movement, and finally secured with a double pin buckle.
This new Robert & Fils 1630 timepiece will clearly attract women who appreciate beauty and for whom the refinement inspired by the lace is as important as the quality and originality of the historic movement.
Robert & Fils 1630
Robert & Fils 1630 is steeped in history, enjoying one of the longest timekeeping traditions in the world. For nearly 400 years, the Robert family has created hundreds of mechanical movements for the industry. Today, heir to this incredible watchmaking and artistic patrimony—which includes the famous painter Léopold Robert (1794-1835)—Gilles Robert represents the 11th generation. And, true to his illustrious roots, he continues this unique tradition by creating exclusive timekeepers with “archae-modern” styling—styling that was awarded with a first prize in design in New York recently.
