The new Jaeger-LeCoultre watch has smartly united mechanical perfection with sophisticated gem-setting techniques – two peculiarities the Manufacture is famous for. The timepiece demonstrates the intricate snow-setting technique that makes the diamonds merge seamlessly into the body of the timepiece that seems to be enveloped by a fabulous landscape with fascinating diamond waves.
The snow-setting technique implies that the decorative scheme is performed directly on the watch case - the artisan-jeweler is guided by his own creative talent and knowledge of the materials as just one slip is enough to ruin the whole piece.
The gem-setter places the precious stones one by one, side by side. He has to match the stones with different proportions to make them completely cover the timepiece’s metal. The brand’s jewelers require tremendous expertise to select the right diamonds and create the most intricate designs built from the tiniest stones that seem to be melting into one another.
