Faberge Watch: The Constellations Align Once Again....

In the field of jewellery, or jewellery as some have it, the name Fabergé is a brand like no other. When Tsar Alexander III of Russia ordered the work of the House of Faberge to be displayed in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg in the early 1880s, an incredible history began. This then is the story of the House of Faberge, the Faberge family and exquisite genius begun with Peter Carl Faberge and brother Agathon Faberge. It sweeps from the Hermitage Museum of Imperial Russia to the capital Moscow, and then across Europe to Paris, France, Mayfair in London, New York in the U.S. and full circle with a return to Geneva in Europe. It includes Emperors, from Tsar Alexander III to Nicholas II, Empress Maria, the British royal family and many other royal families across Europe, and the finest artistic jewellery in gold, diamond and precious stones, and not least the stunning series of Imperial Faberge Eggs. It was a story that for many appeared to have concluded with the coming of the Russian Revolution and the exile and dispersion of the Faberge family across the globe.

In 1917, Peter Carl Faberge, head of the by then long-renowned House of Faberge, creators of the most incredible jewellery as objet d’art of the modern era, was working on a fabulous piece in the series of ‘Imperial Eggs’, the ‘Constellation Egg’. This marvel of crystal, gold, diamond and precious stones was designed for the wife of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, the Tsaritsa Alexandra Feodorovna. At its heart, a fabulous timepiece, set within a beautiful azure cosmos, the constellation of the year of the Tsarevich’s birth engraved and highlighted with rose-cut diamonds. With the coming of the Russian Revolution, the Constellation Egg was never completed, the gift never made. While history marched on, time stood still for the House of Faberge. Until today that is. For almost exactly 100 years later, the constellations have indeed aligned once more, the Faberge family reunited with the Faberge brand and once again guiding the production of a range of Faberge jewellery. It was of course, written in the stars, written in the hours of time itself, that this range, this constellation, should also include at its heart a range of spectacularly executed  timepieces, Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Faberge watches that do not just pay tribute to the work of the House of Faberge, but Faberge watches that once again offer unparalleled quality, combining high artistry with the most hard-won craft skills, alongside the trademark of the Faberge brand, an element of surprise.

Within the wider collection of Faberge jewellery that includes a range of pieces featuring white, yellow, and rose gold, diamonds and other precious stones and items such as astoundingly beautiful necklaces, pendants, rings and object d’art, the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s Faberge watch collections we currently stock offer everything you would expect of a Faberge watch and the Peter Carl Faberge tradition of surprise epitomised in the gold, diamond and precious stone embellished series of Imperial Eggs: unsurpassed attention to detail, innovative, playful design, surprising elements that are only revealed upon close scrutiny, and not least, the genuinely incredible movements crafted by watchmaking geniuses such as APRP and  specialist Swiss watch movement creator Agenhor, under watchmaker Jean-Marc Weiderrecht. , Faberge watch’s partnership with master watchmaker APRP has introduced into the Faberge watch collection (for the Faberge Visionnaire I) a flying tourbillon mirroring the design and production practices of Peter Carl Faberge himself. Similarly, working in partnership Jean-Marc Weiderrecht’s Agenhor,  Faberge Watch has been able to offer, for both the Ladies’ and Gentlemen’s watch collections,  a series of breathtaking new movements created by Jean-Marc for Faberge watch of a level of rare beauty and mechanical perfection befitting of the Faberge name and the traditions established by the House of Faberge with Carl Faberge at the helm. To cement the return of the Faberge brand to exquisite timepiece production, the realignment of the constellations, a fate that needed to be re-written in the stars some 100 years after the Russian Revolution began, Faberge watch embarked on an exceptionally ambitious project, at the same time paying tribute to the great unfinished ‘Constellation Egg’ of 1917 and the revolution which overtook it: the production of a new Faberge watch in the Faberge Gentlemen’s watch collection that would itself be revolutionary, complete with an astoundingly advanced movement heralding a new era in the technological cosmos, and at the same time offering all the joy, surprise and wonder of a Carl Faberge egg: the Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph. On the Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph, chronograph hours minutes and seconds are placed centre-stage, on concentric rings emanating from the centre of the dial. Regular time is read more intuitively on the periphery of the dial. A new rotor design, positioned on the top of the movement, allows the beauty of the movement to be properly seen and adds an element of intrigue from the dial side. With a host of other innovation made to make the Fabergé Visionnaire Chronograph almost silent, the watch has drawn global praise, including winning the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genèva (GPHG) prize in the dual time-zone category in Visionnaire DTZ form. Proof positive, if any more were needed, that for Faberge watch time never stands still, and that once again, Imperial quality is available for those who chose, whether for themselves or as in the great Faberge tradition, as a gift for others.

The Faberge Gentlemen’s watch collection currently includes the Faberge Visionnaire Chronograph Ceramic, the Faberge Visionnaire Chronograph Rose Gold, the Faberge Visionnaire DTZ Gallivanter, the Faberge Visionnaire DTZ 8 Karat Rose Gold, the Faberge Visionnaire DTZ 18 Karat White Gold, the Faberge Visionnaire Platinum, the Faberge Altruist and the Faberge Visionnaire Rose Gold.

The Faberge Ladies’ Lady Compliqueé Haute Horlogerie watch collection, in the most exquisite traditions of the House of Faberge toward feminine sensibilities, include not only the very best in design but an element of playfulness and surprise, combined, as with all timepieces in the Faberge family of watches, truly exceptional movements. Working in conjunction with watch movement creator Agenhor, under watchmaker Jean-Marc Weiderrecht, a spectacular new time display was commissioned for the Faberge Lady Compliqueé, winning the ‘Ladies High Mechanical’ category in the highly prestigious 2015 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genèva (GPHG), which most regard as the highest accolade in Swiss watchmaking. Incorporating a unique new design shared across the collection, the Faberge Ladies’ Lady Compliqueé Peacock watch features a display adorned with fanned peacock feathers, echoing and quite correctly paying tribute to the world-renowned ‘Peacock Egg’ produced by Carl Faberge and the House of Faberge in 1908 in the series of Faberge Imperial Eggs for Nicholas II of Russia and for presentation to his mother, the Dowager Empress Maria Deodorovna. To take just one example from the collection, in the Faberge Ladies’ Lady Compliqueé Peacock White Gold Black, the timepiece features a matt black lacquered dial with striking hand-engraved peacock and black mother of pearl hours and minute indicators.
