Description

“ Quintessence ”

" Quintessence " celebrates the oval shape in its purest form, a world of beauty to be explored by the art lover.

The deliberate choice to incorporate a minimal size movement allows the three-dimensional works of art housed inside this watch to flourish freely, without compromise, thus enabling the watch case to preserve the pure lines and elegance demanded by the designer. The absence of a crown emphasizes this desire for purity.

“ The Frog Prince ”

This unique piece is inspired by the fairy tale written by the brothers Grimm.

With this rather minimalistic composition, the artisan intended to emphasize the sculptural aspect of the white gold frog.  On his head a yellow gold crow set with diamonds.

The frog is hand painted with a translucent lacquer to highlight the gold engraving beneath. A free and playful interpretation of this mythical tail comes to live positioned on a background with diamonds in snow setting.

The absence of a movement in the center and the concave dial enables the frog to emerge from the depth of the watch cage enhancing the perspective of this composition.

This majestic edition comes to life in a 3dimensional microcosm with a thickness of 8mm under the glass in the center, giving the artisan the ability to work with similar techniques used in jewelry.

Set with 388 diamonds on the dial and 574 diamonds on the case and buckle with a total of 5.54 carats.

This watch comes with a white silk and white crocodile bracelet. The gold buckle is set with 98 diamonds.
