Saskia Maaike Bouvier, the name and the brand often announced as the maker of amazing watches created by a woman for women, is a creator of the beautiful The Summer & Winter Time Collection.

The collection embraces six different models in 8-pieces limited editions. This is actually the Saskia maaike Bouvier’s ladie’s first watches collection in limited editions. We have to agree with the brand that these are the watches ne notices from a distance but has to admire closely. The basic design comes in a multitude of colors, used to enhance details on the openworked dial and paint leather bracelets from both sides. But when you come closer, a watch reveals more delicate face, decorated with flowers and snowflakes, along with a duo of beautifully formed bridges, in the shape of three branches.

The whole idea behind this interesting design is to provide a perfect manner to switch from summer to wintertime and yet avoid adjusting the watch. Therefore, the upper dial shows the summer time, while the lower one informs the wearer about the wintertime. An extra little leaf, bestowed by the central movement, indicates the seconds for both seasons.

These rather large watches have 45-millimeters in diameter. Each of the offered variations is available in a limited edition of only 8 pieces. They’re all crafted in white gold except Mirror turquoise and Colors variation I watch, which are made in stainless steel. From the case-back, the watches are engraved with their individual numbers, but rather large portion of the back is left free for personalization, allowing the buyer to truly customize the piece. The watches are exclusively manufactured in Switzerland and built upon SmB 901 automatic movement, which is based on a Swiss ETA 2892 automatic. They are mounted on leather hand-sewn straps with folding buckles.
