At the heart of this new watchmaking fable, two graceful butterflies flit around a daisy to give the time. The darker one, symbolizing the female, is perched on a daisy petal that rotates every hour. The lighter one, embodying the male, sits lightly atop a stem attached to the pistil, indicates the minutes.
In addition to the Arabic numerals at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, the dial presents a second display. One press on the pusher at 2 o’clock makes the numbers disappear to reveal the phrase: “Il m’aime passionnément” (He loves me passionately). This message can be personalized via the configurator. The watch can display any message requested by the owner, in the desired language, with a limited number of characters. Releasing the pusher makes the hour display reappear instantly.
On the back, the owner can indulge in the “He loves me, he loves me not” game, the simplified English version of daisy petals, invented in the 18th century. In order to play, the watch must be placed in a horizontal position and accompanied by one or two undulating movements. The oscillating weight then turns for a few seconds prior to standing still. The ruby closest to the red-lacquered heart provides the response – “yes” or “no” in the center.
More than ever, the Marguerite establishes itself as a vivid symbol of the romantic game of love and chance.
