“Like dry ground welcoming the rain, he let the solitude, silence, and loneliness soak in.” ☔️ ⛅️

Our Azure model is now available in a mechanical option! Featuring a Seiko NH35 movement, display case-back with custom rotor and front Sapphire Crystal.

It’s dial pattern is described vividly in the book Islamic Art by Luca Mozzati:

“Plunged into a sea of bright greenish blue, the mihrab hall in the Jameh mosque at Yazd boasts a series of ceramic medallions in a narrow range of white-turquoise-blue-brown shades that shimmer over a surface of hexagonal tiles of light, watery green.

The central point is the motif that generates the entire composition from it, in accordance with flawless geometrical plan and through two six-pointed stars, there radiates out a rigorous and compact design underscored by a delicately floral impulse based on a rhythmical twelvefold modulation.

The combination of rationality and lyricism seems intended to remind believers that in order to be receptive to the invisible concealed behind the visible, one must rely as much on emotional as on intellectual faculties.”

The pattern on the beautiful Zellij Blue is derived from the stonework of the fountains of the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco. This pattern evokes the flow of water and the balance of open air and stone which renders a sense of subtle balance to visitors of this stunning modern Masjid.

Its name is a tribute to Zellij a distinctive style of tilework or mosaic art that is commonly found in Islamic architecture, particularly in North Africa - Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria. Skilled artisans carefully cut and arranged each tile by hand, creating stunning and mesmerizing designs. The use of vibrant colors and the geometric precision of the patterns make zellij a unique and visually striking form of decorative art in Islamic architecture. The word "zillīj" (زليج) is derived from the verb "zalaja" (زَلَجَ) meaning "to slide."
