The Faubourg Joaillerie watch from Hermès encircles the wrist with a slim gold mesh adorned with a cleverly orchestrated parade of 652 diamonds. The face of this jewellery model slowly but surely came to life under the nimble fingers of the gem-setter. The stones first composed a beautiful pattern on the dial before melting seamlessly into the soft curves of the 16.3 mm case. To accentuate the feather light, airy nature of this watch turned jewel, the artisan created subtle depth effects by leaving slender interlacing gold patterns free of any gem-setting. Then it was time to address the bracelet. Working on a white gold canvas, he pursued his patient work by setting no less than 388 diamonds with infinite precision, repeatedly readjusting them until the bracelet became a perfect extension of the watch.The watches will be priced at £51,710 and we expect them to be in store in time for Christmas.
