OCTAGON, by STEFANO RICCI, is the brand’s worldwide debut in Haute Horlogerie. SR OCTAGON watches are available in limited editions of 10 for each Chronograph, Annual Calendar, and Perpetual Calendar model, including the precious Diamond Lux versions (all numbered) as well as the new limited editions of Chronograph and Annual Calendar in white and yellow gold.
The OCTAGON design recalls an amphitheater of 18KT gold ( the case measures 45,5 x 14,8 mm). Each Diamond Lux version has been enriched with 88 diamonds, set with the ancient “a battuta” method. One hundred SR OCTAGON watches in total, rendered unique unto themselves as each cuvette covering the transparent watch back has been hand-etched with the English scroll technique; as for a style concept, the SR Octagon Chronograph and Annual Calendar models in yellow gold leaves the mechanical movement visible. Particular attention has been paid to the SR OCTAGON after-sales service.
The STEFANO RICCI Octagon Chronograph immerses the measurements of time in the nuances of a Pavé de Paris dial. It reemerges in an architectural concert in which the octagonal Renaissance plan of the counters, arranged on the horizontal axis, is united and harmonized with the chronograph hour totalizer. The movement of the chronograph second is delicate. The power reserve lasts 50 hours, which decreases to 42 hours when the chronograph function is activated.
The STEFANO RICCI Octagon Annual Calendar has its markers arranged on a golden chequerboard. Thus making the eternity of the time cycle the protagonist, by utilising the retrograde jump of the date and the analog impact of the cycle of days and months. The moons, in an unusual blue aventurine, transfer on the mirrored surface the reflection of the immensity of the universe on the brightness of our satellite. All is in a play of light that is imbued with refined balance.
The STEFANO RICCI Octagon Perpetual Calendar sublimates the “infinite” meaning of the octagonal shape, linking the case’s material. It is an articulated and visible feature compared to the immaterial aspect of a reassuring time, which needs no corrections as it perpetually unfolds. The longitudinal asymmetry of the markers lightens the numerical flow of the date and establishes the calendar information at a glance. Astronomical moon phases require a one-day correction every 122 years
STEFANO RICCI has boutiques in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas in the USA.
