The figure eight was chosen for its symbolism as a sign of accomplishment, balance and fulfillment. The Be Eight gave de Grisogono the opportunity to rewrite the ‘rules of femininity’, and there are eight of them, or course!
Be Eight will strike a chord with any woman who believes in her lucky star. Eight is to Chinese culture what seven is in the West: a symbol of harmony that echoes the eight spokes of the Buddhist wheel of life, the eight petals of the lotus blossom, the eight cardinal points, or the eight cosmic mountains.
Sometimes the smallest things bring the greatest pleasure. Clearly, de Grisogono had this in mind when it imagined Be Eight with a moving ring under the upper half of the "8", at 12 o'clock. A detail which accentuates Be Eight's design.
First of all for its highly original form, an "8" with a moving ring under its upper half. This watch is paired with a genuine Madera calfskin strap, a rare and unusual choice.
