The case of th watch, made from solid 18ct Pd125 white gold, houses a dial - in white gold too - whose centre and domed cartouches feature an enamel miniature, realized  using Petitot’s “point by point” technique (1630). Applied by individual spots, each particle finds its place in a tribute to the painting of Jean-Daniel Ihly “Genève, La Rade” (1890), coming together in exquisite harmony, which is given a timeless unalterable quality by firing.

The watch is animated by the in-house mechanical movement made from solid 18ct Pd125 white gold, hand-wound, hand-engraved and hand-decorated, and offering a power reserve of more than 55 hours. In a discreet window at 12 o'clock, an enamelled gold oil drop symbol will appear after four years in operation, when the watch must be serviced.
