During this unforgettable evening, the Manufacture once again demonstrated its creativity, its modern touch and its ability to constantly reinvent horology.
Two Extraordinary watches sparkled with intense radiance
Crafted within the workshops of the Manufacture, La Rose and La Tulipe required the expertise of the finest gem-setters and a level of sophistication and refinement unprecedented in the field of jewellery timepieces. In the end, 3,000 precious stones made the Extraordinary jewellery watches glittered like flowers at sunrise.
