“LAKE OF SHIMMER”-AVANT TIME Nº3, watch, was presented by SWAROVSKI at Baselworld in Switzerland in March of 2012.

The watch, distinctly representing brand’s elegant and poetic essence, marks the passage of time by the luminance of the dial of watch, which is consisted of one piece of twelve faceted crystal.

Inspired by the façade of “Lake of Shimmer,” SWAROVSKI stand, presented at Baselworld 2009, the delicate bracelet of this watch is adorned with small hexagonal stainless steel that reflects the light beautifully.

The façade of the stand has brought the luminance to the space by having number of small mirrors flutter in wind.

The bracelet of the watch reinterprets this scenery, as if the sunlight reflects on the surface of the lake.
