JUST IN: ANNOUNCEMENT: FABERGÉ VISIONNAIRE CHRONOGRAPH
Fabergé is perhaps well known for their eggs as for anything else. The Fabergé Easter Eggs (Russian: Яйца Фаберже́; yaytsa faberzhe) were created by Peter Carl Fabergé and his company between 1885 and 1917. These jewelled eggs gained fame as gifts from the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers. The House of Fabergé made 50 such “Imperial” Easter eggs, of which 43 have survived. Two more were planned for Easter 1917, but were not delivered due to the Russian Revolution. The final egg was never completed. This is the story of an effort to revive the legacy, and a new watch by the House of Fabergé: a new chronograph, called the Visionnaire Chronograph, sporting the latest groundbreaking chronograph created by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht – the Agengraphe.
