The Horological Equivalent of the Perfect Little Black Dress
saint Honoré Paris WatchesSaint Honoré’s elegant ladies Opéra timepieces have been among the company’s best selling models almost since the day they were introduced. Now, this popular design has become even more desirable, with the seductive new Opéra Black Éclair, introduced earlier this year at Baselworld 2012. The intense contrast of the jet-black case and chapter ring with the watch’s brilliant, sparkling center and bezel is simply dazzling.

The magic of the Opéra Black Éclair is created by an exclusive new technique, called the Éclair Effect. This exclusive finish, developed by saint Honoré, gives the watch the dazzling look of high-quality pavé diamonds at a very reasonable cost. Never before has the look of pavé diamonds been so accessible to today’s fashion forward women.

The saint Honoré Opéra Black Éclair retains all the stylistic touches that have made this design so popular. The classic round case is still available in 33 mm and 37 mm sizes. You can still change the strap in seconds to suit your mood and wardrobe too. What is different about this Opéra is the sparkle. There is simply nothing else like it.

The beautiful dial is set with six genuine diamonds that enhance the glittering Éclair Effect. With the saint Honoré logo at twelve o’clock, a convenient date window between four and five, and a classic three-hand display, the total effect of this watch is like having a perfectly proportioned little black dress on your wrist.

The Opéra Black Éclair is powered by a precision Swiss-made quartz movement and is protected by a scratch resistant sapphire crystal, as well as a stainless steel case that is water resistant to 100 feet. The watch also comes equipped with a spectacular black satin strap that can be easily changed to suit the wearer’s taste.

For over 125 years, Paris-based Saint Honoré has been setting tomorrow’s fashion trends by developing innovative new ways to combine art and technology. The dazzling new Opéra Black Éclair may just be their most impressive creation yet.
