reliefs designed, cut, beveled and polished like their big sister’s black baguette diamonds. The ocean
blue of the Big Bang Caviar “Lady 305” timepiece evokes the sand, sun and sea of South Florida. The
41 mm-diameter watch features a bezel set with 36 topazes, and it’s solid case-back is engraved with
a view of Miami’s South Beach with the famous “305” area code. The strap of blue alligator sewn onto
black rubber completes the watch, providing exceptional comfort, flexibility and resistance.
