Ateliers deMonaco - La Sirène Diamant & La Sirène Rubis


In 2009, Ateliers deMonaco created La Sirène inspired by Princess Charlene of Monaco. This timepiece celebrated Ateliers deMonaco’s first entry in high jewellery segment. For the design of the dial, the brand used the King Protea pattern which is the national flower of South-Africa – home country of Princess Charlene. This first timepiece featured light blue topaz stones reminiscent of the colour of the princess’ eyes.

Eight years after the creation of this beautiful timepiece, and especially for Baselworld 2017, Ateliers deMonaco decided to enrich La Sirène collection with two new models: La Sirène Diamant & La Sirène Rubis.

La Sirène timepieces are powered by the in-house automatic dMc-700 calibre which is wound by a 22K solid gold rotor engraved with the shield of the Principality of Monaco. These watches have a power reserve of 42 hours and have a frequency of 28’800 beats per hour. Fully respecting the Ateliers deMonaco aesthetics, these calibres are housed in an 18K white gold case of 39mm diameter. As a final touch, the decorations of each components are executed with precision and passion.

La Sirène Diamant
Entirely decorated with G - Top Wesselton diamonds, the colour and the brightness of this timepiece resembles the purity of the woman’s soul. Shrouded in a case set with 297 diamonds, a bezel set with 300 diamonds and a crown set with 20 diamonds; it’s a pure marvel.  A delicate artwork was created on the 18K solid gold dial which is adorned with 120 diamonds set in a flower pattern. The centre dial features a white mother-of-pearl which reflects the light and makes the watch even more feminine.
