Hermès: Faubourg Joaillerie

Oct 13, 2015 | Parisian Eye

It is an
altogether different creation from the latest Hermès watches I introduced, but nonetheless,
as – very – often with Hermès, a sublime one. The Faubourg Joaillerie
watch encircles the wrist with a slim gold mesh adorned with a cleverly
orchestrated parade of 652 diamonds.
The stones
start to compose a beautiful pattern on the dial before melting seamlessly into
the soft curves of the 16.3 mm case. To accentuate the feather-light, airy
nature of this watch turned jewel, the artisan created subtle depth effects by
leaving slender interlacing gold patterns free of any gem-setting. 
For the
bracelet, working on a white gold canvas, the artisan has set no less than 388
diamonds with infinite precision, repeatedly readjusting them until the
bracelet became a perfect extension of the watch. 
Yet another
masterpiece !
