Crafted entirely at Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Rare Handcrafts workshop, the mother-of-pearl dial features three traditional craftsmanship – guillochage, micro-painting, and gem-setting.
The wavy guilloche motif is brought out more vividly with colours, in a choice of pink, green and purple. The orchids and butterflies, contained inside an oval-shaped ring, are realised by hand one brushstroke at a time. To create the depth and lifelike nature of the details requires a keen eye and the kind of precision that takes years of practice to master.
Almost inconspicuous among the blooms at ‘6’ is a flower-shaped aperture that indicates whether it is day or night. No other precious stones say luxury quite like diamonds, which is why they appear around the inner ring and on the bezel of the 38.2mm pink gold case.
