There are not many jewellers that could turn 652 diamonds into a
delicately crafted timepiece. Painstakingly made with the nimble
fingers of Hermès’ gem-setter, the stones on the Faubourg Joaillerie watch were first composed into a beautiful pattern, before melted seamlessly into the curves of the 16.3mm case. The artisan further created interlacing gold patterns free of any gem-setting, giving the timepiece its light and airy nature.
