Montre Extraordinaire La Rose

A peerlessly voluptuous frosted effect

The Watch Quote™ - September 3rd, 2010



Behind every creation lies the human hand, without which there would be no passion. It alone is capable of blending intuition and know-how, awareness and enchantment. It alone is able to master the technical or aesthetic details that will transform an object into a unique masterpiece. This extreme concern for details has pervaded the Manufacture Jaeger-LeCoultre since 1833, inspiring its craftsmen and master- watchmakers to mingle time-honoured techniques with the latest technological breakthroughs in devising the finest timepieces. Those presented in Venice highlight the virtuosity of artistic crafts, weaving indestructible ties between the past and a visionary spirit. Four creations and as many personalities that count off time and recount the story of Venice, the city of art par excellence, muse of the greatest artist and cradle of the most beautiful love stories.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Montre Extraordinaire La Rose snow setting and ostrich feathers


Montre Extraordinaire La Rose

A rose sculpted in white gold blossoms in the glow of the gemstones outlining its corolla. Transposing nature into a precious gift, Jaeger-LeCoultre has imagined a “secret” watch in the tradition of its jewellery sets and Montres Extraordinaires. Diamonds and pink sapphires distil their radiance like vibrant declarations of love. The exquisitely romantic flower conceals beneath one petal a full-set dial over which the hour and minute hands sweep to the rhythm of a hand-wound in house-made movement, Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 846. This 18-carat Haute Joaillerie model shaped by the expert hands of genuine artists celebrates the union of beauty and precision governed by the most complex of all gem-setting techniques: snow setting. Invented by Jaeger-LeCoultre, this subtle art calls upon the full measure of the jewellery craftsman’s expertise in order to achieve the peerlessly voluptuous frosted effect. Magical and even hypnotic, the Montre Extraordinaire La Rose enfolds the wrist in the soft embrace of a blue-tinged black strap, and is also adorned with ostrich feathers that gently caress the skin.
