The Classico Horse watch celebrates the independent spirit of wild horses with the likeness of two stunning stallions galloping in powerful, untamed beauty on the dial. A white horse and a black horse –each outlined and accented in gold across a rich midnight blue and green background – evoke strong emotions as soon as you lay eyes on them.  Intriguing and incredibly lifelike, the horses recall an era of unbridled beauty and reality.

The champleve enamel work, wherein the dial is chiseled away and enamel is painted into place, offers incredible depth and dimension.
