Jayendra

The Jayendra came about after a long period of contemplation.

The Jayendra came about after a long period of contemplation. We were sitting together with our designer Alain at the kitchen table of Olivier our supplier of diamonds and enjoyed a friendly banter amongst fellow watch buffs on the coming collection for India.

Alain had tried to convince me for some time to give in to my wishes and commission him to create a stunning watch with a green dial. The green which is so dear to me. Suddenly, Olivier said that he had some diamonds with a special cut in his workshop and he went to fetch them with a few bezels of our collection. And slowly the idea of a beautiful watch took form.

We decided to name it Jayendra which stands for Lord of Victory in Hindi. It bears its name because Alain and Olivier convinced me to win over my initial reluctance to follow my instincts with the colour green.
