Sarcar Ellipse “Coral”

Sarcar, not exactly a well-known name in the watch industry. But this is a watch that deserves your attention.

The brand was founded in 1948 in Geneva, with the aim of making highly exclusive, bejeweled, artisan timepieces. This is certainly a magnificent example of this effort.

The oval case alone is a rather rare feature. Apart from a Cartier Bagnoire or Patek Ellipse, the oval watch design has never seen mainstream adoption. However, this Sarcar proves it extremely attractive, when executed properly.

The watch case is made up of two levels. The main case houses the movement and supports the dial. The second part is a bit elevated and keeps the crystal in place. The elevated ‘lunette’ gives this wrist watch a beautiful sense of depth. Both levels of the watch have been diamond set. Absolutely stunning.

The dial might trick you into thinking it is a stone dial. However, it is red coral. The different hues of pink and orange in this dial are unlike any we have seen. The elegant dagger hands and applique logo complete a near-perfect design.

The Cartier-esque crown with matching red coral cabochon elevates the watch to the luxury level we like to offer in our boutique.

Although a more recognizable brand name can be attractive, part of the magic of a lesser-known hero like this is that you will not run into anyone wearing the same watch. It is truly unique, making it highly desirable.
