Celebrate the most important women in your life with a gift from Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons
‘It may be possible to gild pure gold, but who can make his mother more beautiful?’ Mahatma Gandhi definitely had a point. This Mother’s Day, which falls on March 21 in the United Arab Emirates, show your mother, or the mother of your children, how beautiful you think her with one of these enchanting gifts
FP. Journe Élégante
The first thing you notice about the Élégante is the exquisite look created by the diamonds and rubies set into its case and dial, and indeed the synergy between them and the ruby colour of the powdered satin strap. It’s only on closer inspection that the beauty of the watch’s movement, which F. P. Journe spent eight years developing, also becomes apparent. When the watch is taken off and set to one side for half an hour, a mechanical motion detector (visible at half past four) detects the inactivity and switches the watch into standby mode. The hands stop, but inside a microprocessor continues to track the passing of time. When the watch is picked up, the hands are reactivated and spin to the correct time. An ingenious creation that means the watch will run for up to 18 years on a single battery.
