De l’évidente beauté des montres violettes (8)

Mark McArthur-Christie, Worn and Wound :

The Discovery goes for a new take on the classic Explorer 12-3-6-9 dial with a brushed purple sunburst. Change the light and you change the dial; in low-light it appears almost black but under direct sunlight you get a whole range of purple tones, lighter in the center and darker as you look towards the bezel. Standing out against the purple background are the blue five minute numerals, bracketing the separate minute tracks – one per five minute interval. The numerals – and batons – are applied, mirror-finished and infilled with off-white Super-LumiNova. The polished syringe hands match, apart from the distinctive central sweep-seconds that uses an orange, arrow-tip.

Farer Discovery. Boitier en acier inoxydable de 39,5 mm de diamètre, cadran soleillé de couleur mure, index des minutes bleus et pointe de l’aiguille des secondes orange, mouvement automatique Selitta SW200-1 sans date. À 800 €, j’ai presque envie d’en faire la montre officielle de métro[zen]dodo. Le violet, c’est la vie.
