The BCHH Celestial 

 

The Celestial was envisioned as the quintessential dress watch - a masterpiece that encapsulates elegance at its essence. Its ultra-thin microrotor movement is encased in an exceedingly refined platinum case accented with svelte scalloped teardrop lugs. Available with a choice of aventurine, white jade, green jade, solid platinum, silk embroidery or enamel dials. 

The silk embroidery and enamel dials are not depicted in our collection, as they are completely bespoke to the client's wishes. If you are interested in commissioning a Celestial with either of these dials, simply contact our concierge at concierge@bchh.ch
