In 2010, Breguet introduced “mobile setting” a remarkable gem-setting technique based on a clever system of pivots. The Crazy Flower jewellery watch, presented the same year was the first of the manufacturing company’s creations to incorporate this revolutionary way of setting diamonds. In 2011, Breguet unveiled the Petite Fleur, a jewellery watch also based on the mobile setting concept. Following the huge success of this creation, the company now presents a version in yellow gold that is even more dazzling and exclusive.
The Petite Fleur watch in 18-carat yellow gold results from a perfect alliance between the traditional know-how of Breguet’s jewellery craftsmen and the innovation that the company unceasingly demonstrates. The crystalline flower under a domed sapphire glass presents a dished dial in yellow gold set with a frost of 141 brilliant-cut diamonds. The flange is decorated with 48 diamonds in an inverted setting. The open-tipped Breguet hands have been curved to follow the dial. Two rows of 43 baguette diamonds in individual mobile settings glorify this unique piece, giving it life with each movement of the wrist. The exactness of the settings makes the gemstones concentrate and refract the light in a sensational way, giving them an unequalled brilliance. More than 230 diamonds adorn this exclusive timepiece.
The self-winding calibre 586 movement reveals the traditional handicraft of fine watchmaking through the transparent caseback. The delicate workmanship bears witness to the skills of Breguet’s watchmakers. Circular graining and Geneva stripes decorate the bridges while the platinum winding rotor displays an engine-turned barleycorn pattern.
Made entirely by the craftsmen of Breguet’s jewellery workshops, the yellow-gold Petite Fleur is held by a strap in white satin, finished off with a folding clasp set with 26 diamonds and signed with Breguet’s initial.
