The Claude Meylan Tortue Lady Soleillee is a fascinating and alluring mechanical sculpture, blending the femininity of sensual curves with a contemporary look.
Its architecture is designed to seamlessly integrate with the soft lines of its “turtle” design case. The movement is partially revealed, which add a feminine yet sober style to this treasure. The beauty of its form is complemented by the beating of its balance wheel and the oscillations of the rotor at 6 o’clock.
Exuding elegance, this exclusive calibre is meticulously worked in a modern, dazzling way. The rhodium-plated dial is decorated with Roman numerals and the 3 o’clock bridge is adorned with a fine sunrise guilloche, while the rotor is set with the same guilloche. Rotating freely and in harmony with your wrist movements, the rotor provides a unique animation to the Tortue Lady.
The time indication is up at 12 o’clock with blue dauphine-style hands for the hours and minutes, and is balanced by the rotor at 6 o’clock.
A technological satin strap sets the final touch, thanks to the pin buckle; the back of the watch invites you to travel into a new dimension where the “Claude Meylan” savoir-faire is fully visible.
