Time is a ubiquitous aspect of our lives on a daily basis. From when we wake up to when we sleep, it’s much like an essential garment for every individual. Step into the world of an exquisite collection of 18k gold watches crafted by the visionary Suparna Mitra, CEO of Titan Limited Company. These exquisite creations, birthed from a collaboration with the talented actress Sushmita Sen, introduce seven timeless additions to the Nebula, Titan’s latest Art Deco Collection.
Originating in France just before World War I, Art Deco emerged as a captivating fusion of contemporary aesthetics, architectural finesse, and intricate design. It masterfully amalgamated modern sensibilities with meticulous craftsmanship and opulent materials. In its prime, Art Deco embodied opulence, allure, exuberance, and an unwavering belief in the advancement of society and technology.
Right from its inception, Art Deco drew inspiration from the dynamic geometric patterns of Cubism and the Vienna Secession movement. It borrowed the vibrant palettes of Fauvism and the Ballets Russes, while embracing the refined artistry seen in the furniture of the Louis Philippe I and Louis XVI eras. The style also incorporated influences from far-flung places such as China, Japan, India, Persia, ancient Egypt, and Maya art. This eclectic blend resulted in the use of exquisite and lavish materials like ebony, ivory, and more, all meticulously crafted.
The elegantly refined geometry, intricate embellishments, and graceful contours of this exquisitely contemporary assortment pay tribute to the iconic era of creative brilliance that blossomed in France during the 1920s, resonating globally throughout the ensuing decades. Nebula, the Art Deco ensemble by Titan, seamlessly encapsulates an embodiment of elegance and personal distinction. Within each watch, a perpetual masterpiece emerges, embodying the very essence of artistry that holds allure for discerning aficionados.
