Jacob & Co. Caviar Emerald Tourbillon

$2.4 million

Jacob & Co’s Caviar Emerald Tourbillon timepiece took almost two years to produce due to the difficulty in finding the right stones of the exact size and shade of green. There are 424 emeralds in total (32.39 carats) that are set in an invisible setting so that the emeralds completely cover the dial and case of the watch. The 18-karat white gold timepiece is equipped with the brand’s tourbillon movement and paired with a white alligator strap. There is also a version with blue sapphires.

CHRISTOPHE CLARET MARGOT

CHF 213,240

Christophe Claret’s Margot timepiece presents a very feminine and complicated timepiece  that features a unique movement developed in-house.  The watch is based around the children’s game “He loves me, he loves me not”, where the petals are removed one by one to see if a girl’s true love is real. The French version of the rhyme is a little longer than the English version as it goes “He loves me a little, he love me a lot, he loves me passionately, he loves like like crazy, he loves me not.” Every time you play by pressing the pusher at two o’clock, a petal, or a pair of petals, fall away under the dial, while the answer to the question appears at random in two apertures at the bottom of the dial. Once all the petals are gone, a push on the pusher at four o’clock and the flower springs back to life.
