From Dior’s use of Australian opal and turquoise, to Louis Vuitton’s use of malachite, pink mother-of-pearl and aventurine, the dial is making a rocking comeback. Teamed with the opulent use of colour of all shades, there are some bewitching timepieces appearing on the scene.
Adopting this season’s blue tidal trend, EBEL has launched a lapis lazuli dial watch that positively shimmers with its electric blue tone.
Prized for its intense azure colour, this semi-precious stone addition to the new 36mm Onde watch is iridescent and irresistible. Great worn with a crisp white shirt as a softer option to the monochromatic palette, this inspired piece wouldn’t look out of place with contrasting brights either!
The colourful gemstone dial, unique to each watch, sits in a stainless steel case with a diamond-set crown, for added glamour. With a nod to the stone’s North African roots, known as ‘Moroccan blue’, an Arabic numeral sits comfortably at the 6 marker. The blue partnering semi-matte alligator strap is also fashionably current for this modern classic. Featuring a quartz movement, the Onde from EBEL is water resistant to 50 meters, retails for £2,100.00 and is available direct from EBEL’s official site, www.ebel.com.
