Stephen Webster Presents the 2013 Watch Collection by Tiret
From the Robb Report Luxury Newswire
Internationally acclaimed British jewelry designer Stephen Webster presents the new women’s watch collection by Tiret, "Fly by Night." Unreservedly luxurious, this collection is feminine and timeless while retaining Webster’s distinct identity.
Inspired by Stephen Webster’s iconic Fly by Night fine jewelry collection and combining Tiret’s expertise in Swiss horology, each skilfully crafted timepiece is embellished with Webster’s signature pave diamond thorns and gem-set night flyers.
Distinctly elegant, each watch is made to the highest levels of precision in Swiss watchmaking, combining Webster’s inspired design and the artistry of skilled gem-setters with the attention to detail of Tiret’s master craftsmen. Unlike conventional crowns, the embedded crown in this collection was developed over a long period of research and development to be uniquely, and for the first time, positioned on the inside of the case to complement the overall aesthetic. By applying Tiret’s revolutionary case technology and incorporating two independent dials, Webster has been able to convey his inimitable design aesthetic unencumbered by traditional design restrictions.
The collection, with a limited production run of 200, features five designs each incorporating an enamel dial set with black diamonds, white diamonds or amethysts. Set in stainless steel with anti-reflection sapphire crystal, each watch is available with the choice of black, white or purple leather strap.
"Fly by Night is my second watch collection. Aware that watches are no longer the primary source for telling the time, our focus is on the design aesthetic. The crown has been developed with a stadium-like area surrounding a small automatic movement and dial. The stadium itself houses bejewelled thorn and night creatures which are iconic to the Fly by Night collection. It’s a contemporary jewelry watch collection with the beauty and edge synonymous with Stephen Webster,” comments Creative Director Stephen Webster.
The Fly by Night timepieces will be available in Stephen Webster stores beginning in November 2013.
