Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Orologeria Watches

Dolce & Gabbana makes its debut in the world of Haute Horlogerie… with a series of four unique watches. Dolce & Gabbana Alta Orologeria collection includes timepieces which pay homage to the operas of Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi: Othello, Don Carlo, Nabucco and MacBeth. Inside each heavily bejeweled exterior beats one of three classic high complications: an automatic tourbillon, a tourbillon with a monopusher chronograph, and a tourbillon with a minute repeater.

Othello features a vintage movement and dial that have been restored and encased in a rectangular case, in a sapphire sandwich. Once again, the main point of interest is about jewelry and métiers d’arts.
