This watch is sort of like a baby’s activity center – for adult women who love precious stones. The watch features a totally baguette diamond covered case, with a spinning cylinder at the bottom of the case that you can spin with your finger to get that “hand touching and turning emeralds, sapphires, and rubies sensation.” Everything a developing high-society socialite requires. Behind the watch hands are columns with individually set stones that move around with gravity. It’s like an all too real version of Bejewelled on your wrist – this is the Peter Tanisman Carrousel Fantasia watch.
The case itself is in 18k white gold covered with 161 diamonds (10.86 carats). There are dozens of emeralds, rubies, and sapphires all over it. Inside the watch is most likely a Swiss quartz movement with the crown on the back. The strap is a red-colored reptile with an 18k gold strap. The Carrousel Fantasia watch also comes in other styles with different stones and tones. This luxo-curio will be fun for a few minutes on the wrist.
The young jewelry brand of Turkish origin is going to be presented at the upcoming international industry show Baselworld 2011 set to open in March.
