The Magical Jaquet Droz Lady 8 Flower Watch will Amaze You
Swiss watchmaker Jaquet Droz celebrates femininity and fashion with the aid of their lovely Lady 8 Flower collection, a true reflection of the brand’s 300 years of artistic design and craftsmanship. This new charming watch is actually made from two circular, 18-karat red-gold cases that are beautifully inset to form either a figure eight or the symbol for infinity, depending on what angle you’re looking from.
The larger case houses the dial’s centerpiece, an 18-karat red-gold butterfly applique set against a guilloche-patterned base, with the hands forged from the same precious metal trace, while the watch bezel has been bedecked with 114 brilliant-cut diamonds.
The smaller case, on the other hand, is covered by a dome of sapphire crystal, featuring an 18-karat red-gold lotus flower inside that’s mechanically animated by a pusher at 2 o’clock, allowing it to blossom from bud to full bloom and reveal its dazzling secret: a rotating diamond core.
The crystal caseback of the Jaquet Droz Lady 8 Flower watch allows the owners, and not only them, to savor the spectacle, which could take up to 38 hours – the timepiece’s power reserve. Furthermore, there’s also an 18-karat white-gold version of the watch, including a bed of 227 snow-set diamonds and butterfly wings formed by 54 blue sapphires.
82 diamonds grace the bezel of the case, while 22 diamonds add emphasis to the pusher and 9 diamonds reign over the crown. The Lady 8 Flower will only adorn 28 wrists, in red-gold guise, and 8 in the white-gold form. Each one will set you back $157,500 and $262,500, respectively. Pure magic!
