Lapis lazuli – blue like the sea
Lapis lazuli, also known as lazurite stone or lapis for short, is a naturally occurring, deep blue metamorphic rock that consists of different proportions of the minerals lazurite, pyrite or calcite depending on where it was found. The word lapis comes from the Latin language and means “stone”. Today, the natural lapis lazuli pigment, which is still very expensive due to the complex extraction process, is valued primarily by restorers in Europe. In East Asia (especially Japan, China) and Arabia, the high esteem of natural ultramarine as a “heavenly” and thus at the same time stately blue is unbroken.
Our Holzkern Öresund
Our watch of the week Holzkern Öresund has a link bracelet made of silver-colored stainless steel and black-brown leadwood. The case is also made of stainless steel with a black and brown leadwood bezel. The dial of the chronograph is divided into two parts and surrounded by a silver-colored frame. There are Roman numerals for the minutes and seconds. The upper part of the dial is made of black and brown leadwood and a chronograph that stops the minutes. The lower part of the dial is made of blue lapis lazuli and a chronograph that stops the seconds. The hands are silver and you can read the date. In addition, this is a quartz watch.
