France - Iris
France has been the cultural center of Europe for centuries. Its rich cultural heritage and history have made it a favorite travel destination for many. The one flower, which represents the country in all its glory is Iris, also found in the countries insignia and national emblem.
With the 2018 Around the World Collection Bijoumontre introduces a floral update to its range of travel-inspired watches. Based on the national flowers of some of the most sought-after travel destinations of the world, the designs are both feminine and romantic. The Iris iteration of the collection references France. It challenges the meanings of the flower’s iconic three pedals with its bold purple design: wisdom, faith and chivalry. The floral design is used to create a romantic aesthetic, which furthermore adapts easily to the style of the women who wears them. With a unique interchangeable mechanism, the exclusive World Charms. This allows the wearer to mix and match separate version of Charms to create a fully unique and personalized style in one’s own preference.
With its two separate parts it allows for a wide variety of possible changes. Additionally, a lug system, integrated in the straps, also allows for a quick change of wristbands to further enhance the personalized aspect of the watch. The watch is boldly decorated with a total of 0.27ct natural diamonds, 0.68ct Amethysts and pink Sapphires. They are used to form a magnificent illustration of the Iris flower. Its refined leather strap in purple completes this romantic aesthetic, true to its original inspiration – France. With its floral inspiration, its multiple options for personalization and reference to one of Europe’s most iconic travel destinations, our Around the World Iris watch is BIJOUMONTRE’s iconic model for the year of 2018.
