Product Description

Both bezels and the back of the watch is ornamented with translucent cobalt blue enamel and gold paillon decor. A centred oval-shaped medallion shows the allegory of friendship, portrayed by a contemporary dressed couple in a rural idyll, inspired by the work of the Swiss painter Angelika Kauffmann (1741-1807). The lower half displays two banners beset with paste stones: "Ca Ce(st)" ("This is") and "D'Amitie" ("Friendship").
