Count Jérôme de Witt, the founder of the Manufacture DeWitt, unveils Princess Marie-Clotilde, a masterpiece of both the watchmaker's and the jeweller's art, with the intention of paying tribute to his mother, HI&RH Princess Marie-Clotilde Napoléon.
The gem-setting technique used in this piece is ground-breaking, seeming to leave the diamonds in suspension, free of all ties of material and form. The observer's gaze is relentlessly drawn down into the depths of a translucent block and captivated by its surprising transparency.
