Let me ask you a question. How important is the number 8 in Chinese culture? Personally, I know that it is considered a powerful and positive symbol. I saw many high-end wristwatches, which in one way or another were associated with the number 8. Most of the watch brands do not hide that they do this to attract customers.
Cacheux 8: Features
For Cacheux 8, the number 8 is really a certain symbol. It goes without saying that the model will be produced in a limited edition – only eight pieces. The name of the watch “8” implies that it took eight months to create them. On the dial, there is a massive eight-karat diamond, the body is made of 88 grams of 18-carat gold (white, pink or yellow and platinum as an option). Do not forget that on the dial is a large figure 8, which is also made of 18-carat gold. Let me assume that the price should also be at least eight digits!

Cacheux 8: Design
The design is definitely unique, thanks to the talented designer Fabien Cacheux. He always comes up with unique ideas and concepts of watches – far from those that can easily be embodied in life. The designer considers the release of Cacheux 8 “tribute to the number 8”.
Cacheux 8: Dial & Cover
At the same time, although the model is a unique set, it reminds me of the Montblanc Grand Tourbillon Heures Mysterieuses. Not exactly the same, of course, but they have similar in theme dials, similar tourbillons. Can a large diamond on the dial be next to the tourbillon? Will they divert attention from each other? Who knows. The Cacheux 8 watch will have five days of power reserve with manual winding. You can see the movement of the mechanisms through the back cover of the watch.
While the dial looks quite large, the arrows seem a bit paltry. I think that the dial is difficult to read. So, I still think that the space of the dial could be used a little better and make it more legible.
Cacheux 8: Additional features & Price
It is difficult to say for what purposes on the dial such a large diamond. It’s all like a ring, is not it? Instead of a heap of stones, these watches simply prefer to focus all attention on one large shiny stone. Although I do not think that this is such a big feature of the watch. I think it would be cool to rotate the diamond once a minute. This might add some shine to the clock. The price of the Cacheux 8 clock is currently unknown.
