THIS IS NOT JUST A WATCH: THIS IS A HIGH JEWEL WITH HOURS

This wristwatch with 28.5 mm diameter in a bracelet made of leaves of different sizes in thin branches interwoven. It is a piece that plays with the ramifications reversed asymmetry, a crown at 2:00 o´clock, alternating surfaces polished and studded with diamonds. The stylized landscape evokes the sphere Dent Vaulion, the peak of the Jura Mountains, overlooking Lake Joux. To symbolize the peaceful nature sleeping under the snow, the designer decided to combine white pearl, gold and diamonds. Some blue sapphires increase coldly a flight of swallows announces the imminent arrival of spring.

JEWEL BRACELET

The realization of the bracelet need to be particularly long and laborious. Before the manufacturing stage, the volume and the joints were analyzed in detail in order to obtain a perfect balance and an improved flexibility with respect to the original design. Each gold leaf, different size was molded individually by hand. The beautiful foliage covers the delicate branches, mounted as a sophisticated Parisian mesh technique, and is forming curved "S" that make the task even more complex. The jeweler has used a zip invisible and hidden inside the middle box at 6:00 o´clock, in order to preserve the aesthetics of the work. The bracelet, however, is completely disassembled, allowing for a perfect fit on the wrist of the owner.

STONES ON STAGE

The stones, the purest diamonds (IF) and sapphires of the highest quality, are pressed into shiny, baguette and marquise. Some stones are carved on the piece to fit the location that corresponds to them, others however have a character so extraordinary, that form is imposed on the structure. The different media, snow, grain and reflections are closed harmonic subtlety contrasted with inimitable composition lighted the bottom of the box.
