The decidedly feminine pieces draw the eye with design elements that are unique to the watch brand. The 29 mm case stands out for its very slender profile, its centre fastening, and its flat bezel. These styles come with streamlined opaline silver or matte black dials. They are ornamented with Arab numerals and sometimes a raised arabesque design, an aesthetic detail that has become iconic of Balmain watches. A steel, yellow PVD, or two-tone (steel and yellow or pink PVD) strap puts the harmonious finishing touch on these new classic styles.
Pierre Balmain was one of the most outstanding figures of Parisian haute couture. He dressed exceptional women who left a mark on their era. Through his art he helped spread the idea of luxury a la francaise across the world. When the delicate task of creating and developing was given to Pierre Balmain in 1987, it was clear that the design of the timepieces had to center round the famous arabesque motif, in the highest sense of elegance. The liberty was thus taken to create bold shapes and adapt cutting-edge watch making technology to continually surprise and seduce customers.
