The two colors chosen for the rotating bezel are sand and dark green; the first in homage to the desert, the second in homage to the traditional mint green tea, a symbol of Moroccan hospitality. The laser-engraved caseback faithfully reproduces the traditional designs of Moroccan majolica.
The Ocher City
Marrakesh, the ocher city of Morocco that has attracted people from points near and far with its colors, architecture and dense, labyrinthine streets connection a network of souks offering everything from fabrics to traditional slippers, food, spices and the famous Moroccan ceramics desired worldwide.
The Swiss GMT Marrakesh impresses with its light brown, sunburnt finish on a dial struck like a coin. The coin motif is inspired by this Moroccan city’s use of cash as the preferred method of exchange over ATMs or credit cards.
The indexes, applied with a multicolor Superluminova® insert, reflect the colors of Moroccan majolica. At night, each of them offers a different brightness to recall the multi-colored lanterns of Marrakesh that light up when the sun goes down.
