The Russian market - one of the key for most expensive fashion brands and Russian culture, many designers as one of the main sources of inspiration, so the capsule collection created for Russia and dedicated to her, there often enough. But jewelry and watches, whose design addresses a recognizable symbol of Russian culture, go out less often. It is often the designers and master limited commemorative inscription or original decorative element on the product from the permanent collection. The emergence of truly unique product - an event for the market, and, as a rule, all of the outstanding watch or jewelry find buyers rather quickly, often even before the start of official sales, told several major retailers. Recent examples of such proposals: Girard-Perregaux watches dedicated to Dmitri Mendeleev.
