JEWELLERY TIMEPIECES SET THE HOURS AGLOW

by Lili Li

 

Gemstones and fanciful designs are paired with precision mechanism.

If the raison d’etre of every timepiece is merely to tell the time, we will obligingly strap dull and functional mini machines on our wrists. But, alas, it isn’t. Timepieces are an expression of hopeful anticipation, making the passage of time a period of excitement and fulfilment.

Time may be an abstract concept, but we have devised a concrete way to measure its passing.

Baguette-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds and baguette-cut sapphires are liberally set on the dial, bezel and lugs.

 

FLIGHT OF FANCY

Piaget Phoenix High Jewellery Watch

The dominant motif of the timepiece is the phoenix, a mythical bird whose plumage is articulated here in marquise and brilliant-cut diamonds accented with rubies set on white gold. The asymmetrical motif surrounds a 32mm watch fitted with a white gold bracelet in décor palace finish.

 

THE MOOD IS FLORAL

FLEETING TIME, ENDURING BEAUTY

Parmigiani Fleurier Tempus Fugit

Drawing from its expertise in antique clock restoration, Parmigiani has created an exquisite time-telling objet d’art. The primary motif of the piece is a dragon covered in 150 green jade scales and accents in various colours. It has ruby eyes, solid white gold claws and whiskers, and a carnelian tongue. It is depicted chasing a ball of fire – or pearl of wisdom according to the ancient lore – that is made of 18K yellow gold encrusted with diamonds, yellow sapphires and rubies, and engulfed in yellow gold ‘flames’. The clock is powered by a PF 670 movement with a power reserve lasting eight days. It has a key to set the time and wind the movement. The dragon automaton turns in a one-hour circuit as the pearl of wisdom ‘escapes’ its claws six times – each one is announced by the chiming of the gong.
