Continuity Ocean: A unique timepiece for the auction of the “Bal du Printemps” held on March 21st, 2013

The Continuity ladies’ collection lends a face to time that is both poetic and responsible. Each precious dial in the Continuity ladies’ collection tells a great story.

Today, this tale is accompanying an important project which funds research in paraplegia in Switzerland and around the world.

On this occasion, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Bal du Printemps, the Geneva watchmaker Blacksand, produces a unique model called "Continuity Ocean." This piece gives true meaning to beauty and offers the possibility of celebrating contemporary time while enjoying a refined and luxurious object bearing a message for the generations to come.

Housed in a pink gold case set with diamonds, a turtle entirely made and engraved by hand makes us travel in a sea of enamel. The Blacksand Genève 1999, self-winding caliber, provides a poetic reading of the time. With an indication of the jumping hours at 12 o’clock and the dragging minutes at 6 o’clock, this little gem plunges us into a world where only the water window at 3 o'clock lets us know if we swim at night or in daylight... The various decoration techniques used imbue these watches with a distinctive aura. A unique stage setting featuring cloisonné grand feu enamelling, meticulous gold cutting, the subtle integration of colored motifs, create a stunning backdrop for this tale to be experienced with elegance and genuine awareness.

Celebrating time in the present in order to preserve the future is now an integral part of the corporate codes governing the Blacksand Genève brand.
