The Faubourg Joaillerie watch encircles the wrist with a slim gold mesh adorned with a cleverly orchestrated parade of 652 diamonds.
The face of this jewellery model slowly but surely came to life under the nimble fingers of the gem-setter. The stones first composed a beautiful pattern on the dial before melting seamlessly into the soft curves of the 16.3 mm case. To accentuate the feather-light, airy nature of this watch turned jewel, the artisan created subtle depth effects by leaving slender interlacing gold patterns free of any gem-setting. Then it was time to address the bracelet.
Working on a white gold canvas, he pursued his patient work by setting no less than 388 diamonds with infinite precision, repeatedly readjusting them until the bracelet became a perfect extension of the watch.
