Creating this masterpiece demanded no fewer than 316 diamonds and 94 blue sapphires. The precious and exceptional character of this timekeeper is further enhanced by the case set with 23 baguette diamonds and 54 blue sapphires that reach till the lugs, creating contours that also beckon the sense of touch.
At its centre, a sumptuously paved dial where every single one of the precious stones – 286 diamonds of varying cuts (totalling 2.05 carats) and 40 baguette sapphires – commanded the highest level of artisanal artistry. Once it has passed muster, each stone is individually shaped into its assigned cut: baguette, trapeze, brilliant. The prowess behind the Cat’s Eye High Jewellery comes through in the juxtaposition of cuts, the fruit of a lengthy process combining patience and passion. And it all comes together in sophistication that transcends into a creation of living light.
