Complication: Fabergé Lady Compliquée Peacock 

  • A newcomer to women’s complicated watches, Fabergé has transcended the patronizingly cute timepieces that Swiss brands often build for women. The Lady Compliquée Peacock, which Fabergé created in concert with the complication specialist Jean-Marc Wiederrecht of Agenhor, features a retrograde minutes display rendered in a peacock’s fanning tail feathers. Each feather moves at its own speed in a delicate and perfectly conceived use of mechanics. Other detailing includes numerals set over mother-of-pearl on the rotating hour ring and an exquisite diamond-and-colored-stone snow setting on the dial. 

  • The large size of the movement allows for an emphasis on its decorative elements.

  • A complex graduated-gear system enables the feathers to move precisely at independent and coordinated speeds.

  • The dial is snow-set with 127 white diamonds, 31 Paraíba tourmalines, and 57 tsavorites.

  • The case is made of platinum and set with 54 round diamonds.
