Emile Chouriet Soleos Silver Star

Name of this new timepiece is derived from the contraction of names of two gods belonging to two different mythologies:  Sol, the Roman god embodying the sun and Eos, the Greek goddess of the dawn. The silvery dial made of opaline is filled with rays starting from the centre and extending outwards to the chapter ring. Each of the geometric grooves sets up interplay of contrasts between the silver grey and the steel grey. The central hour, minute and second hands have been discreetly coated in silver, while the metal-bevelled date window has a special shape to blend into this light-filled decor.
