The DeLaneau Jazzy Tulips timepiece combines inspiration from the great masters, the expertise of the artisan enamellists and the raison d’être of the brand. It required tremendous efforts in research and development in the quest to discover new enamelling techniques.
The technique used for this hand-engraved Grand Feu enamel painting is unique in the watchmaking world. “I was keen to finish my work so that we could be the first ones to come up with such a technique for a dial” admits Béatrice, the artisan enameller behind this pièce unique.
On each tulip, there are no less than three different ways of working with relief: enamel displayed in small, raised points, inspired by the works of Émile Gallé; a matt area reworked by hand; and the frosted appearance, which was achieved using acid, in the style of Camille Fauré. The result is a subtle blend of artistry that expresses the outstanding craftsmanship of DeLaneau.
Like a jazz concert celebrating the arrival of spring, this colourful dial is protected by a 36mm red gold case set with 78 diamonds a diamond encrusted crown. This exquisite timepiece houses an automatic movement. Fabric strap set with an ardillon buckle set with 2 diamonds.
The DeLaneau Jazzy Tulips, pièce unique totals 1.38ct diamonds.
