For centuries the world’s finest watchmakers have used rubies inside their mechanical timepieces to keep them running smoothly. While nothing works better from a practical perspective, we felt it was a shame to hide such a stunning stone. So we’re taking our lab-rubies out for a spin. Our elegant Scarlett Watch puts the radiant red stones in the spotlight, with 44 lab-created Scienza® rubies set along the bezel.
This watch might not exist without luxury’s greatest loophole. Back in the 16th century, the Calvinists banned almost all forms of jewelry. The one exception was watches. So Geneva’s finest jewelers and goldsmiths began honing their skills in watchmaking, using their artistic flair and technical expertise to create some of the most beautiful timepieces ever made. That seemed to us a tradition worth continuing.
The Scienza rubies in this watch’s bezel are chemically identical to natural gemstones in every way. The chief difference between them is that the lab-created stunners have far fewer imperfections, and as a result display superior color and beauty. And of course, they can be yours for a far less daunting price.
In addition to the glittering stone bezel, we’ve set 8 labcreated DiamondAura® rounds into the swirling, decorative dial. Three golden hands and shimmering Roman numerals add extra dashes of opulence, and the white leather strap provides a sophisticated final touch. You’ll also be happy to hear that we haven’t traded fashion for function. Thanks to a precise quartz movement, the Scarlett is a watch that’s as accurate as it is beautiful.
