Wristwatch of gold, silver, diamonds, a dial engraved with Zümrüd-ü Anka motif and a sapphire glass with reversely engraved flame intaglio.

The story of the phoenix-like mythical bird Emerald Anqa, or Zümrüd-ü Anka, is one about finding truth within oneself. All birds embark on a difficult journey to their home in the branches of the Tree of Life on the summit of Mount Qaf as it rises out of the clouds. But most return after missing their Earthly passions. Thirty birds succeed in passing through the bottomless valleys of love, selfishness, denial, frustration, jealousy, astonishment and poverty before encountering a mirror that reflects them all as One at the end of this painful journey, so they may attain unity. Just like the Anqa, who is reborn from its own ashes again and again and may only be seen by those who attain wisdom. They, who truly seek God, will find themselves in the end. For Sevan Bıçakçı, time should never be wasted. He's designed this wristwatch to remind us all of the importance of reaching truth and finding oneself in this short life.
