Lady Compliquée Peacock Black Sapphire

Fabergé presents its vision of fine watchmaking for women. To those well versed in the arts of gold and silversmithery, Fabergé represents surprise and meticulous execution. The Lady Compliquée Haute Horlogerie ladies' collection upholds this tradition with a new and spectacular time display. Two models are available with the same exclusive mechanical movement made in Geneva. A peacock fans out its tail every hour on the first, while on the second, the dial is gradually covered with frost. 
 
 
The highly original display of the new Fabergé Lady Compliquée collection features a fan at the heart of the watch. It thus perpetuates the ingenious and freethinking spirit of Peter Carl Fabergé, who crafted his creations to be both emotive and fascinating. Innovative, surprising and made to the highest standards, the new displays in the two “Peacock" And “Winter” models pay homage to the famous “Peacock Egg” of 1908 and the “Winter Egg” of 1913.
 
LADY COMPLIQUÉE CALIBRE
 
The movement equipping the Lady Compliquée collection is a real watchmaking masterpiece, designed especially for this unfolding and peripheral double display. It is also the subject of a patent request. Besides the new indications, it includes several already patented technical innovations that clearly improve its functioning, enhance its resistance and prevent any wrongful use.  The exclusive movement of the Lady Compliquée Peacock was recognised by the expert jury of the 2015 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève (GPHG) as the best timepiece within the ‘Ladies’ High-Mechanical’ category.

Who's who

Fabergé, inventor of extraordinary precious objects, has chosen to develop a complete range of watches in association with master watchmakers. Working together, we create astonishing and enchanting timepieces that combine the science of measuring time with the imaginative freedom of Fabergé. The design of these simple or complex watches for men and women is based on one core quality: the unexpected.
 
Peter Carl Fabergé’s creative genius became legendary for his ability to work with precious materials, proportions and patterns, just like a painter composing his canvas. Naturally curious and open-minded, Fabergé was engaged in a constant quest to surprise and delight. While he was first and foremost a creator of jewellery and precious objects, Peter Carl Fabergé also turned his hand to timepieces. The timepiece collections have been designed to kindle these same emotions.
 
The new Fabergé timepieces are contemporary creations that encourage unexpected combinations of shapes, materials and functions. They represent a bold move in new directions, constantly adapting to the trends of the times, harnessing the power of technology and innovation to create wonderment.
 
 As with Fabergé jewellery and objects, these new timepieces do far more than simply tell the time. They are experimental laboratories for testing new ideas about the world and aesthetics. Their rightful place is on the wrist, which serves as a showcase. Each creation, at once a timepiece and a work of art, thus plays a new role: to attract and persuade with a convincing message. In fact, every Fabergé timepiece sets out to capture a precise moment in a changing world. 
Their mission to bear witness roots Fabergé watches deeply in the reality of the present moment. And so they adapt to a way of being, thinking and living. Just like today’s women, they are lively, elegant, spirited, unique and unafraid to be themselves. Meanwhile, the men’s creations focus on powerful, distinctive and innovative design packed with technological prowess. Every watch in the catalogue also hides a number of astonishing details that only come to light when examined closely. 
 
The design of Fabergé watches mirrors the creative principles of Peter Carl Fabergé. As with his very first creations, great attention is paid to perfectly balanced proportions, the superimposition of delightful materials, the interplay of various patterns and, above all, original colour schemes. The visual richness obtained by these variations in tone is essential to Fabergé’s aesthetic approach.
 
From the outset, Fabergé turned towards established masters to design and produce its timepieces. Only they were capable of capturing Fabergé’s watchmaking vision perfectly in accordance with the strict rules of the Fabergé standards of workmanship. With each new creation, he called on their expertise and imagination to pinpoint the most apt solution and bring his ideas to life. From the design and manufacture to the decoration and final execution, every single aspect of their craft was called into use.
