Dubai, UAE, June 15, 2017: Created in partnership with the famous French firm, Repetto, RAYMOND WEIL creates a variation on the Shine watch inspired by the world of ballet. A symbol of freedom, elegance and movement, the Shine “Etoile” watch appears attired in the spirit of tulle and asserts its character as a true performer through the versatility of two interchangeable straps crafted in Repetto leather. This beauty will make a wonderful present for the special woman, this Eid!
Daintily framed by a 32 mm round steel case, the dial takes on the flowing grace of steel by means of a subtle white tulle motif appearing on a galvanized silver-toned satin sun-brushed dial creating light effects inducing a shimmering sense of movement. Thanks to a unique patented system of removable lugs developed by the R&D team of RAYMOND WEIL, the shine “Etoile” watch changes straps and style with equal ease. Alongside its classic metal bracelet, it may be teamed with straps crafted from Repetto leather. Two star shades – iconic blush pink, the emblem of legendary pointe and demi-pointe ballet shoes; and Crystal carbon black – express a blend of elegance and glamour, surrounding the wrist with a graceful, airy touch. In step with its blued hands, the shine “Etoile” watch accompanies the 24 hours in a woman's life. This versatile and multifaceted timepiece is the icon of the world's gifted ballerinas, étoile dancers and other stellar feminine figures.
“Expertise is a living heritage that we cultivate and that we translate into the future. It is this mind-set that sparked the cooperation with RAYMOND WEIL. Two independent family-minded House that both nurture excellence and precision,” says Jean-Marc Gaucher, CEO Repetto.
