While one watch is dressed in pink/ white gold with an array of gemstones set around the bezel, the sapphire micro structures intertwined with the skeletonised movement are UV-reactive and light up to display  a rainbow of colours at night. The edition is limited to 28 pieces.

The second version reflects muted tones of white, black and grey of the day. The white gold dial is encrusted with diamonds and has a black rubber strap. Under UV light or at night, the flange in the dial lights up in neon hues while the rubber strap glows. This is an 8-piece edition.
