Unique model in gold 5N set with 417 diamonds (0.50-1.5mm TW vvs). This type of setting, highly complicated and made entirely by hand, is a world first.
The dial, in 5N gold, was made by the famous French artist, gold lacemaker, Sara Bran. The design is entirely handmade and requires more than 60 hours of work. It represents the dance of love of the wonderful cranes of Japan. The mirror-polished finish and fine-tuning of the burrs is entirely done by hand using traditional methods. The complexity was not to refine the openings too much at the risk of losing strength. A hand-polished mother-of-pearl subdial has been added to provide contrast.
The bridges and bottom plate have been entirely openwork by hand, ditto for angling and engraving of all technical components. The purpose of such daylighting was to give depth and to take advantage of the mother-of-pearl to bring out the different components of the movement.
The rotor, in 210 white gold, is entirely openwork by hand. It represents the plumage of the wings of the cranes. 46 diamonds (0.60-0.90mm TW vvs) are set and represent the fine water beads of the morning dew on the plumage. The level of finish is exceptional and made entirely by hand.
The hands, especially created for this timepiece, are in white gold, blue PVD coating, hand finish.
The 5N gold crown is set with a 2.70mm diamond (TW vvs).
Movement base : Piguet 71
The bracelet is in pearly white alligator, hand stitched. The buckle is in 5N gold hand engraved.
