Emile Chouriet Alchimie

Emile Chouriet, this year’s sponsor of the Prix de Lausanne, pays tribute to the world famous dancing event by presenting a pair of classic watches: Alchimie. Capture the dreamy ripple of a tulle fan as the ballerina twirls in a floaty pirouette on a watch dial: that’s what inspired the designers at Emile Chouriet as they watched the dancers at the famous Prix de Lausanne.
Like white silk muslin, the heart of the Alchimie’s shimmering silver dial is adorned with a softly gleaming fan. A slim black minute track wraps around the guilloché dial and the slender Roman hour numerals reach out to the chapter ring.
The two dark grey hands on the silver body are like two arms stretching into a graceful arabesque to track the hours and minutes in the centre alongside the central seconds hand. The date display performs supple leaps in its bubble to take today into tomorrow. The hands performance is brought to life by the caliber EC5317, a self-winding mechanical movement made by Emile Chouriet in its Genevan studios.
The new steel Alchimie models come in two sizes (28 or 38mm) with a metal or leather strap to wrap around your wrist.
