The Saint Valentine's 2015 model has a mother-of-pearl dial decorated with an inlaid rose. The dial was meticulously worked, and each petal delicately sculpted into the white mother-of-pearl. The resulting rose in relief was then cut and dyed before being assembled on the dial. The different thicknesses of mother-of-pearl allow the color to show through, creating a subtle palette of pink shades. The off-center hour display is animated by the automatic calibre 2653C.

The 36.8 mm diameter white-gold case is lit up with 121 diamonds (totalizing 1,237 carats), distributed on two intertwined rows of different-sized stones on the bezel, on the horn-shaped lugs and the crown.
Visible through the sapphire crystal back, the pink mother-of-pearl inlaid on the oscillating weight echoes the flower on the dial.
