Watches with Diamonds

The diamond watch occupies a decisive position within the Métiers Rares workshop of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture. The many setting techniques, such as bead, baguette and closed-setting, are applied by the hands of craftsmen to produce the most daring of creations. Some diamond watches, such as the Rendez-Vous Tourbillon in white gold, are enriched by this expertise and inventive spirit, which has secured the reputation of the Grande Maison. Yet it is a technique that the Jaeger-LeCoultre Manufacture's own artisans have invented that recreates the magic of nature: the snow setting. The master jeweller creates the decoration using gold, nestling diamonds side by side according to their individual sizes to entirely cover the precious metal. It is a technique that demands a rigorous selection of stones, in addition to masterful dexterity. The Rendez-Vous Ivy Tourbillon diamond watch, with ivy leaves delicately set on a mother-of-pearl dial, is an exquisite example.
