October 18, 2018

deLaCour ECLAT

Being as always in tune with its customers specific desires and thanks to its sense of personalization, the brand was able to once more meet a special request.

With “Eclat”, deLaCour wanted to revisit the past and offer a reinterpreted version of the classic pocket watch.

These 9 timepieces are truly exceptional and unique.

By reconnecting with a long tradition of complicated pocket watches and by contemporarily reinterpreting the codes of these classical timepieces, deLaCour con- firms the Brands status as a high-end watchmaker and designer. deLaCour offers a true masterpiece: the dial and the 53 mm white gold case are fully set with 2287 diamonds.

Nine unique timepieces were designed. Each piece featuring a unique flange set with:

  • 96 baguette-cut diamonds
  • or 120 yellow baguette-cut sapphires
  • or 120 baguette-cut rubies
  • or 120 baguette-cut blue sapphires
  • or 120 baguette-cut emeralds

A diamond set white gold chain completes each timepiece.

The watch carries a hand winding DC292 caliber, a Tourbillon at 6 o’clock and a 5-day power reserve indica- tor at 2 o’clock, featuring “lancelot shaped” hands tipped with Superluminova in its dial.

The back of the pocket watch is set with diamonds and a sapphire glass allows a view at the DC292 caliber bridges as well as its logo: “deLaCour Genève”.

By achieving these 9 timepieces deLaCour confirms the Brands passion and expertise for watchmaking and high-end jewelry, combining perfect aesthetics and technical performance.

deLaCour Clessidra

September 10, 2018

deLaCour Clessidra

deLaCour unveils the impressive extent of its jewlery-making know-how for the first time in its history: CLESSIDRA, a round-shaped dual timezone piece.

This model is further elevated by the extremely delicate work of the Genevese House’s master gem-setters. By reducing the functions of this timepiece to the strict necessary, the visual effect becomes uniquely stunning.

The Clessidra is the ultimate combination of design, know-how and exquisite Swiss watchmaking. A true reflection of previous deLacour jelwery collections, this delicate feminine watch is light and consists solely of diamonds.

While refined and feminine, Clessidra masters the notion of time more than ever:
The elapsed time is represented in the dial by a luxurious clepsydra where white diamonds glow like water drops. The future time is indicated in deLacour’s motto “Since Tomorrow” and “Individually Crafted”. And of course, the present time, or rather, the “present times”, those belonging to the space that separates the place where we are from the place where we would like to be; the East and the West that span the distance to come closer together, leaving just enough space for a thin line of white diamondsv.

The contrast between the snow diamond-studded dial and the white gold case, combined with the reflections bouncing off the free diamonds allows the light to create some astonishing optic effects.

This precious timepiece has a white gold case set with 19-carat round and oval diamonds. Its dial is snow set with 3.6-carat round diamonds, while in the center the free diamonds are scattered whimsically.

Facing each other in a semi circle are two dials that indicate the local time and the time in any other desired location.

The timepiece’s bracelet is made from hand-sewn crocodile leather with a white gold pin buckle. Clessidra features two quartz movements: DC221. This jewelry masterpiece will only be made in 8 specimens.

An ultimate marriage between the fine art of watchmaking and the unique shimmer of the precious stones, Clessdira brings together state of the art gold setting techniques. The white gold shines in its diamond-clad setting only to honor the lady who wears this timepiece with the most elegant of compliments.

deLaCour Black - Saqra

Since its very early days, the brand chose to present some of its models with black PVD coating.

When applied to the casing, the PVD finish offers more elegance and sturdiness, in addition to preserving the casing and protecting it from wear and tear.

The PVD used in combination with the mounted pieces lends the latters a more intense and attractive sheen.

Following the launch of its latest new models Saqra Urban and Reflect Skeleton, the Genevese house decided to complement its titanium models with a more resistant coating for these two models, the DLC.

The DLC penetrates the material at different thicknesses, which gives it the same properties as diamond. At the same time, DLC protects the casing from surface scratches.

DLC gives the casing more:

Sturdiness with the passing of time
Resistance to daily tear and wear
Exceptional sheen

More than just a surface treatment; this process is also used in Formula 1 engine cars for its unique properties.

City Splash

By creating this feminine model, deLaCour proves that a timepiece is not merely an instrument to measure the time, but rather an object of beauty and freedom of expression.

The City Splash is distinguished by its soft layers of precious stones (pink, blue, brown and green sapphires) starting at the center of its dial and rippling out to the edges where they seamlessly merge with the white dia- monds that adorn its gold case.

City Splash is an aesthetic masterpiece with a refined finishing. It combines tradition and modernity, strength and softness, subtle geometry and a perfect outline. This timepiece is a perpetuation of the Genevese House’s jewlery experience and its know-how in timepiece exterior.

City Splash has Lance –shaped hands and a self-winding movement (DC261), with a rose gold case and a hand-sewn crocodile bracelet in colors that perfectly match the dial.

City Splash is a limited edition of 22 pieces.

Leap Passion

Leap Passion

Leap Passion is a piece of utmost elegance and a sophisticated look with subtle aesthetics. While maintaining its elliptical form, a deLaCour trademark, the Leap comes to life in a curvier shape.

This timepiece is the incarnation of the Genevese House’s trademarks: an elongated shape with a brand-specific case.

Leap Passion is the beautiful complement of its counterpart, Leap classic. It has an exquisitely generous casing through which the fine watchmaking
House showcases once again its jewelry expertise, and brings to life a real light show.

White diamonds line up the entire length of the case and seamlessly join the lugs, enhanced by a circle of diamonds around the dial.

In its center, pavé diamonds line the dial and are surrounded by three pear-sized precious stones (diamonds, citrines, perdiots) which combined together, create a unique visual and light effect.

Leap Passion has a shape that is unique and exclusive to deLaCour, and comes with a rose gold case (edition limited to 22 specimens) or a steel case (edition limited to 88 specimens).

Leap Passion has Lance –shaped hands and a quartz movement (DC225).

It is waterproof up to 5 atmospheres. Its exterior is finished with a handsewn crocodile bracelet.
