Anyone who has ever visited the Arabian Sea has certainly fallen in love with its clear water shimmering in hues of blue and the sparkling spots of sun beams dancing on the water’s surface. Even the iconic Burj al Arab has painted its various hotel floors in shimmering blue tones, with the tinge of turquoise paying tribute to the beauty of the water’s sapphire hues.
Inspired by this love of his local waters, an Arabian customer wished to own a watch dial that plays with various shades of azure as well as the sparkling effect the sun provides when it touches the surface of water. And these wishes were the GRIEB & BENZINGER workshop’s command!
The result is the PHAROS AL ARAB IMPERIAL a timepiece that catches the eye alone by virtue of its amazing appearance: a handcrafted, guilloché, blue-coated base dial that changes color as sun beams touch it along with sparkling royal Princess-cut diamonds on the bezel.
Solid 18K rose gold case, diameter 43 mm, bezel set with 66 Princess cut diamonds, completely skeletonized, engraved and guilloché by hand, movement with signature 3⁄4 plate, blue platinum coated hand-guilloché base-plate, hand-made blue alligator skin strap.
