The Telescopium timepiece symbolises the movement of the dial of the watch to the infinity, thus making it disappear in the night sky.
The diamonds set between ice sapphires represent the constellation of the Great Bear.
This constellation guided the captains of the vessels during the night.
Quinting pays homage symbolically.
About the creation Pascal Berclaz, President of Quinting, said: “A dream that combines glamorous star and the spirit of the factory, the Telescopium is a meeting point with fine jewellery, between the Swiss watch-making art and technology to the level of art”.
Out of sight and on our mind Skies have always been visible to the naked eyes. However, before Galileo’s first telescope in 1609, the celestial movements remained quite mysterious.
That is why humans, stuck between the solid disorder of the earth and the unachievable immensity of the sky, always provide to it much more than they received.
In this twelfth year of the third millennium, Quinting revisits the twelve Zodiac signs. Celestial symbols par excellence, they are a proof that an order, even unstable, exists. That we can believe in a balance between the very small and the very big capable to restore human identity within cosmos.
With its Zodiac Collection, Quinting launches twelve different models, one for each sign of the Zodiac (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces). As with the Telescopium model (showing the Big Bear), diamonds, hand-crimped on the sapphires, here symbolize the stars of each constellation.
Tanks to the grace carried by a Quinting watch of the Zodiac Collection, the one who wears it can realize that he can find his own balance at hand, just waiting for him to master his destiny.
