The Antarès with interchangeable strap added to its iconic appeal with a new case shape in 2018. Today Michel Herbelin French Watchmaking Studio unveils a new diamond-set addition to the collection. This modern, elegantly styled timepiece – complete with an ingenious system that enables you to change the strap yourself – will appeal to watch lovers who appreciate refined aesthetics.
A strand of diamonds shimmers along either side of the sensuously curved steel case.For a total weight of 0.24 carats, the gemstones illuminate the rounded outline and highlight the meticulous finish of the chiseled lugs, drawing the eyes towards the sweeping face of the dial. Offering a clean reading of the time, its diamond hour markers are punctuated with stylised Arabic numerals only at 6 and 12 o’clock. The dial daintily orchestrates time against a silvered backdrop featuring sunray guilloché at its centre, or adorned with genuine white mother-of-pearl. This jewel of a watch is an ode to femininity, its gadrooned crown set with black onyx making it the picture of laid-back distinction.
A look for all occasions

Slide your choice of strap between the lugs of the case, and it clicks into place in a matter of seconds. Voilà: serious chic is child’s play.
