Unveiled earlier this year, the Slim d’Hermès Savana Dance watch features a whimsical scene of a leopard chasing a monkey amidst vibrantly coloured plants painted on a white mother-of-pearl dial framed by a 39.5mm white-gold case. Only 12 are available.
Once more, Piaget proves to be the master of stone dials with the Altiplano High Jewellery lapis lazuli tourbillon watch. To create the dial a Piaget craftsman cuts lapis lazuli into slices a mere 1mm thick, polishes them and assembles the pieces into a stunning dial.
The stone marquetry takes as long as three weeks to complete. A tourbillon on the right of the vivid blue dial is balanced by the time on the left, and the face is framed by baguette-cut diamonds set on the white-gold case.
