Inspired by Dance, Made for Women, Crafted by Ferragamo

Salvatore Ferragamo WatchesThe Ferragamo name is synonymous with sophistication and elegance. This spring, the Florentine fashion house will introduce its women’s Minuetto watch collection at Baselworld 2013.

Dancing the Minuet by Giandomenico TiepoloInspiration plays an important role in the design of every Ferragamo watch and the Minuetto is no exception. Minuetto, the Italian word for minuet, is a style of dance and music made popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. To convey “dance” in the Minuetto watch collection, Ferragamo introduces motion by way of a rotating gancino – the iconic symbol of Ferragamo style and quality.

Minuetto cases are 36 mm in diameter and available in either steel, IP rose gold or a two-tone combination. The lugs are designed to appear detached and hover away from the case, which is meant to reinforce a sense of gracefulness.

The dial is made from white mother-of-pearl that creates a bright and delicate backdrop for the centrally placed gancino. The gancino appears to float above the sea of pearl as it moves with the motion of the wearer, lending a playful element to the watch’s refined overall composition, and reminiscent of the rhythmic minuetto. The gancino holds 32 diamonds (0.09 ct.) and dances around a circular guilloche-patterned mount. The outer ring of the dial also has a white mother-of-pearl base with a single diamond hour marker at 12 o’clock. The remaining hour markers are either circular or baton-shaped while the hands are sword-shaped.

Different materials are combined to create the dials including the aforementioned mother-of-pearl and guilloche. The central gancino comes diamond-studded or unadorned in stainless steel or rose-gold IP. In addition to saffiano leather straps, the Minuetto can be had on a stainless steel bracelet or a two-tone version, all with deployment buckles. Minuetto watches are water resistant to 100 feet and house Swiss made Ronda 762 quartz movements.

Minuetto watches pledge to make a stately impression on the wrists of those who choose to wear them as part of their life symphonies.
