Van De Bauwede has added new models to the Dahlia, Snake and Legend Rider lines as well as releasing the new Twilight and Neb-K, ranges.
The new Dahlia Quartz models have rose gold-coloured bezels with a petal motif set with minute diamonds and come either on a glossy leather strap matched to the dial colour (a choice between black, brown or white) or a rose gold coloured stainless steel bracelet.
Added to the Snake range is the Power Reserve collection, the case is set with 2.26cts of black sapphires and 3.90 cts of brown and white diamonds in a pattern in keeping with the leather python effect strap. Unlike the Snake Auto, this model has a 42 hour power reserve which is displayed at six o’clock.
The Legend Rider is now available with a new tourbillon movement and more variations for the dial: rhodium-coated with black numerals, chocolate brown with red numerals and blue with pink numerals. The brand is also releasing a limited edition of the Legend Rider with "Cotes de Geneve" embossed on the dial.
New to Van De Bauwede is the Twilight range which is available with either automatic or quartz movements. For the Auto, the black stainless steel case is set with 3.21 carats of black, purple, blue and pink sapphires, the crown is also jewel encrusted. Both versions have split level dials, the first level is grey mother-of-pearl with the eight o’clock hour marker dusted with white diamond powder and a rose motif dusted with black diamond powder, each subsequent hour marker is gem-set. The second level is a mobile bat motif set with black sapphires.
The Neb-K is available in self-winding or quartz versions and comes with a choice of two dial types- galvanic for men and mother-of-pearl for women- on a satin strap.
