A homage to the beauty of the Orient

Scheherazade would certainly have fallen in love with the dazzlingly beautiful TEFNUT 1001 Nights. This watch brings to life the tales of the Arabian Nights with an elaborate Milanaise bracelet.

The TEFNUT 1001 Nights captivates with its magnificent radiance and golden Milanaise bracelet

  • Case and dial set with a total of 124 diamonds
  • Artistic motif of a nocturnal sand dune landscape with a moon shining above it made from the finest mother-of-pearl – each one a unique specimen
  • Very fine Milanaise jewelled strap that matches the case in white or rose gold

Inspired by the beauty and mysticism of the Orient, a watch with a magical aura has been created that unites the art of watchmaking with the art of jewellery to the highest level of perfection. The dial with radiant Diamonds and handcrafted mother-of-pearl takes the observer into a mysterious nocturnal landscape of sand dunes with a moon shining above them. It is assembled elaborately by hand using the finest and precisely cut mother-of-pearl plates. Due to the varying colours of the mother-of-pearl, each image is a small unique specimen. 62 white brilliant-cut diamonds and a radiant, asymmetrical guilloche lend the dreamlike motif a sparkling frame.

Golden Milanaise jewelled bracelet

The TEFNUT 1001 Nights is now available with an innovation – an elaborate Milanaise bracelet: it is made in white or rose gold to match the case and lends the watch its perfect elegance. Thanks to the ultra-fine workmanship, it gently nestles on the wrist and feels cool and airy on the skin even on hot days. The folding clasp can be variably adjusted and easily released.

Dial and hands

The black Roman numerals and the unmistakable lance-shaped Grossmann hands stand out harmoniously against the delicate line structure of the dial. The white or rose gold case gently widens from the crown to the 9 o’clock side. The bezel is set with 62 white diamonds. Two freely suspended lugs fixed to one side of the case easily pick up on the exciting asymmetry of the design. Like the crown, the lugs are graced with blue cabochons.

Calibre 102.0

The TEFNUT 1001 Nights features the characteristic movement elements of the calibre 102.0: cantilevered balance cock with the Grossmann micrometer screw, raised gold chatons, a separately removable winder module, and the mass-optimised Grossmann balance. The sapphire crystal back on the back of the watch reveals the radiant high-artistic finish of the movement.
