A trio of bracelet watches from the ABOUT TIME Collection. These 18ct gold bracelet watches adorned with amethyst, aquamarine and tourmaline crystal are produced in a limited series designed by Andrew Grima in collaboration with OMEGA.
 
Andrew Grima was a British Royal jewellery, designer and artisan. He became the foremost modern jewellery designer in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1969, Grima was commissioned by OMEGA to create a collection of watches which became known as ABOUT TIME Collection.

This limited series of watches used striking and avant garde forms to create the analogy of the passage of time. Grima also used precious stones as the watch glass for the focus of “Seeing time through gemstones”.
