Fashion Replica Watches — Discover Fabergé’s new men core collection, the Fabergé Altruist.
The introduction of Fabergé’s debut fine watch collection in 2015 met with resounding applause, even attracting a Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève award – the Oscars of the watchmaking industry – for its complex Lady Compliquée.
Whilst Fabergé’s feminin clientele were presented with a great choice of timepieces, the offering for men consisted of a single flying tourbillon – the Fabergé Visionnaire I. This year Fabergé adds new depth to its men’s offer with the introduction of not only the Fabergé Visionnaire DTZ, but also a men’s core collection, the Fabergé Altruist.
Fabergé Altruist is an elegant, self-winding 41mm watch presented in 18 karat white and rose gold variations. The round case and bold, yet softly tapered lugs create a classic silhouette for a versatile timepiece. The timepiece is wound and adjusted by a crown with pivoting finger-grip, which swings out to afford better purchase.
The centrepiece of the Fabergé Altruist is its guilloche dial motif that radiates out from its centre-point in waves. The 18 karat white gold model is presented using a technique long associated with Fabergé; namely a hand-guilloché motif over which Grand Feu enamel is applied, offering added depth to its blue dial. Fabergé signs the dial of its Fabergé Altruist collection with italicised Roman numerals at the quarter positions of the dial.
The white opaline dial of the 18 karat rose gold model has applied rose gold indices. While at first glance the hands might appear to be Breguet in style, instead of the traditional circular apertures the Fabergé Altruist features elongated, egg-shaped openings. This variation on this style can also be seen in the lady’s core collection, Lady Fabergé.
A domed sapphire crystal, offers the complete timepiece an organic, pebble-like frame, while a sapphire crystal case back affords a view of the 3000 calibre’s bespoke 22 karat gold oscillating weight. These models are water resistant to 30 metres and are fitted with an alligator strap with matching 18 karat gold pin buckle.
