sapphire

is a jeweller’s dream of flawless perfection, revealing no trace of inclusions or discolouring when examined under the strongest magnifying glass. This exceptional material is shaped and faceted by hand to emphasise its luminosity, the fiery density of its colours, and the brilliance of its immaculate surfaces. A tempting array of traditional and contemporary styles accompanies the allure of innovative designs that defy a label.

In our workshops in the heart of Switzerland, the secrets of the “Megalith” are revealed to our master jewellers. This patented process of fusing two sapphires into one indivisible unit is at the heart of a CENTURY watch and has been handed down to Philip W. A. Klingenberg from his father and company founder. Rated 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, CENTURY sapphire is second only to diamond and demands highly precise workmanship. This extreme durability ensures that its sublime beauty will endure for generations to come.


A myriad of alluring designs with the unmistakeable aura of femininity


Master Imperial This most prestigious collection of watches and jewellery has been exclusively designed for connoisseurs with discerning taste. Each exceptional piece incorporates gold, precious stones and CENTURY sapphires in the power of shapes and cuts that espouse CENTURY’s distinctive style. These intricate and superb gemstones are meticulously hand cut using traditional know-how and CENTURY’s inimitable mastery of jewellery techniques.
