WHATEVER YANA RASKOVALOVA DOES, SHE DOES IT WITH ABUNDANT ENTHUSIASM, SPARING NEITHER ENERGY, NOR IMAGINATION, NOR PRECIOUS RESOURCES. THE FIRST WATCH SHE HAS DESIGNED IS NO EXCEPTION TO THIS RULE
WAS LAUNCHING YOUR FIRST WATCH A SERIOUS STEP FOR YOU?
For me this was another step in my creative development and a new stage in the life of my brand. I always proceed intuitively: if an idea seems good to me.
THE WATCH CASE IS IN THE FORM OF A PENDANT. HOW DID THIS IDEA COME ABOUT?
I wanted to create a watch which you can wear as a piece of jewellery. I decided to depart from the concept of a classic flat case; instead, I came up with the idea of a jewellery pendant to contain the movement.
THESE ARE TRANSFORMER WATCHES. HOW DOES THIS WORK?
There are two ways in which you can wear them – on a turquoise bracelet or as a pendant on a sautoir.
HOW MANY WATCHES ARE THERE IN THE SERIES?
Only one. But you can have it custom- made with your own choice of shade of gold and stones. ♦
