Rousseau Vivace Watch  
 
47-Rousseau Gents Vivace Mechanical Ultra-Slim Brown Leather Strap/Champagne Dial Sale Price: until Oct 31/07 $250.00 A classic watch with a bold, new thin design, the Rousseau 'Vivace' is a beautiful timepiece to behold. The dial has been given an antique pocket watch feel with its slim hands and stylized numerals. Inside, the mechanical hand-wound movement has been fashioned into an ultra slim design that is much lighter and accurate than conventional timepieces. Because of this, ultra-slim timepieces are much more difficult to produce and hence more sought after by collectors. The polished, golden stainless steel case surrounds this state-of-the-art movement, while an even more incredible Côtes de Genève finish shows through from the mechanisms inside. -Movement- Mechanical TY-2705 movement w/ 20 jewels -Case- 40mm x 10mm gold tone stainless steel case Curved mineral crystal Exhibition back w/ Côtes de Genève bridges Water resistant up to 5 ATM -Dial- Subsidiary seconds dial -Band- 200mm x 18mm genuine leather strap -Warranty- One year limited non-transferable manufacturer’s warranty One of the oldest watches bearing a signature from a Geneva Master Watchmaker lies in the Cluny Museum of Paris, France. The signature is that of Jean Rousseau engraved upon the case of a watch taking the form of Death's Head. In engraving his signature upon such a startling creation, perhaps Rousseau cheated mortality somewhat. Less romantic is the notion that years of making timepieces must have agreed with him, for he lived to be an old man of nearly 80, from 1606 to 1684. Whether or not one cares to read a mystery into Jean Rousseau's legacy, the truth of the matter is he is quite immortal. Mortality, however, was not cheated. Immortality was earned. And so, today the Rousseau family of watches carries on as immortal as time itself, as memorable as the genius-family of watchmakers. These timepieces carry the spirit of their namesake with movements as smooth as the heavens with a polished glacial finish, and as sturdy and firm as the mountains surrounding a Swiss village.
