This nearly identical variation of the TEFNUT Sleeping Beauty was inspired by artist Michael Koh’s storybook interpretation. The dial of the TEFNUT 1001 Nights is adorned with a dreamlike scene from the realm of the luminous nocturnal sky and endless stories.
The image symbolises the world-famous legend of One Thousand and One Nights and stands for the persuasion of storytelling. It pays tribute to Sheherazade who mesmerised her king with irresistible tales. And it is a homage to the woman who still believes in the magic of stories.
THE MOTHER-OF-PEARL INLAY
In the off-centre jewelled ring with 62 brilliant-cut diamonds, the precious dial of the TEFNUT 1001 Nights depicts a dune landscape in the light of the moon. The image is an artistically crafted nacre inlay. Individual, precisely cut mother-of-pearl segments are assembled to create an impressive scene.
Because of the iridescence of mother of pearl, no two images are exactly the same. The emotionally charged, one-of-a-kind timepiece owes its fascination to the combination of nature, high-tech, and craftsmanship.
