The ST-TROPEZ™ Mansart takes its name from Jules Hardouin-Mansart, one of the most influential European architects of the 17th century. His classical style is behind many of Paris’ famous buildings and squares, including the Place Vendôme. Designed in an octagonal shape, Place Vendôme is synonymous with a formal architectural beauty that has inspired artists, couturiers and moviemakers over the centuries. Still today, the elegance of this famous square lives on, inspiring the world’s most luxurious brands, hotels and couture houses to make their home on Place Vendôme.
Taking our cue from the elegance of this square, we have re-worked the ST-TROPEZ™ watch in homage to Mansart’s creations. ST-TROPEZ™’s usual circular case is replaced by a petite rectangular version (25mm * 30mm) with angled edges, to form an octagonal shape.
Three styles become ever more precious: a warm yellow-gold version, a rose-gold variant with diamonds at each corner of the bezel, or steel versions set with 61 diamonds.
Dials come in two styles and reflect the elegance of the famous Parisian square: they shimmer with a white mother of pearl dial set with diamond counters and an opaline seconds counter, or come with an engraved white mother of pearl and seconds hand at 6 o’clock.
As always with our ST-TROPEZ™ timepieces, the watch is fitted with our signature twisted steel cable strap, and pretty chain bracelet.
French chic is always in style: with the ST-TROPEZ™ Mansart, women can show their affinity with Parisian style on their sleeve!
