Dial Watches Paper-Cutting Art On Your Wrist
Launching its very first collection in conjunction with British paper artist Sarah Dennis, whose work combines traditional paper cutting with collage, Dial aims to transform the world of watches, making high quality pieces that bring together modern art and classic watchmaking.
With just one exclusive design featuring either a gold or rose gold outer case, Dial’s collaboration with the British paper-cutting artist has resulted in delicate handmade butterflies and woodland features across the navy faces of each watch, with the simple cream dial complimenting the feminine design details perfectly.
Using classic shades, each Dial timepiece comes with two handmade leather straps in navy and cream, allowing the wearer to switch up their style with ease, while the high quality crystal glass and Miyota movement ensures the timepieces are made to and function at the highest possible quality.
Dial embraces the idea that the two most important elements of the creative process are time and space, which is precisely what it offers the artists they work with. Artists are given a blank canvas – a watch face – and they are challenged to capture a unique moment of artistic inspiration.
About Sarah Dennis–Sarah’s work combines traditional paper cutting with collage. Sarah’s pieces exemplify the beauty of nature in fairy tales and whimsical childhood dreams, telling classic poems and folk tales through the medium of paper. Each piece is individually hand-cut using a craft knife to reveal exquisite, delicate detail within the illustration. Not limiting herself to any one type of project, she takes on a variety of work and welcomes individual requests for bespoke, hand-crafted artwork.

A Gift of Beauty for Mom:SK-II’s Spring Butterfly Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence
In honor of Mother’s Day, SK-II has created a new limited edition Spring Butterfly bottle of the iconic Facial Treatment Essence, dedicated to devoted mothers everywhere. Featuring fluttering butterflies that represent elegance and metamorphosis, the special edition design is symbolic of the unconditional love, encouragement, and support our mothers give us, which allow us the opportunity to grow into our best selves.
Inspired by the transformative power of the mother-daughter bond, it’s the perfect gift for the woman whose unconditional love gives you the strength to soar beyond your destiny.
SK-II’s iconic product, Facial Treatment Essence, is a beacon of transformational beauty. The best-selling essence, often referred to as ‘miracle water’ by SK-II users around the world, was the first product offered when the brand launched in Japan more than 35 years ago, with its composition remaining unchanged.
Facial Treatment Essence has been linked to lasting beautiful, ageless skin as SK-II recently discovered its landmark Skin Destiny study. SK-II found that women who start using Facial Treatment Essence in their 20s look significantly younger in their 30s and 40s, and shows that it’s never too early or too late for women to take control of their destiny and achieve the beautiful skin they’ve always wanted.
The secret to lasting beautiful, ageless skin is SK-II’s signature ingredient Pitera™, which is derived from a unique yeast fermentation and made up of a delicate composition of amino acids, vitamins, organic acids, minerals, and other valuable components for your skin. Available at SK-II counters and SK-11.com.
