Marguerite is part of the Margot line, Christophe Claret’s first ladies’ model, and it tells the story of romance. It has two graceful butterflies in blue, orange, red or green Super-LumiNova that flit around a daisy with white lacquered petals. The daisy is part of the movement, which is set with eight rubies. Adding to the colours the five versions of the watch – white or 5N red gold, ‘flake’ or ‘champagne’ set – make Marguerite a must-own for your summer watch wardrobe. The watches are available in 30-piece limited editions.
