Nina Ricci N030 Ladies Watch
Lots of time and effort goes into trying to make new and interesting watch cases and dial designs. The possibilities are next to endless - especially with women's watches. New from Nina Ricci is this N030 watch that uses two visual ellipses to create the watch dial and elongated lug structure. The watch itself is contained in a plump little case with the crown at its apex and a neatly made dial in a few styles including machine engraving style decoration in white, mother of pearl, chocolate, mauve, or standard white. Other options include dials with Roman numerals, baton markers, or "NINA," one letter for each of the points of the dial). I appreciate it when "artistic" watches such as this aren't too hard to read.
I am curious as to what a timepiece such as this looks like on someone's wrist. The unique shape could prove to be quite nice as it curves over a feminine hand. The case itself is in steel and polished, but is also available with a PVD coated rose gold finish. More options include case decoration of either 12 or 45 diamonds. With the strap there are still more options including at least six different versions available. The N030 is really going to be a diverse watch give all the options, owners of the watch might never meet someone else with the exact same combination watch. Inside is Swiss Ronda quartz movement. Crystal is mineral but with a special sapphire treatment over it to help protect against scratches. Now all they need is a good name to go with the watch collection.
