Haute Joaillerie art

Beauty meets precision in this stunning hedgehog-shaped ‘secret’ watch featuring 18-carat white gold entirely paved with diamonds and moonstones according to a gem-setting technique.  It required the skills of the entire range of Haute Joaillerie team: designers, wax-sculpting jewellery makers, lapidaries, jewellers, gem-setters, polishers.
The head, set fully in diamonds, is embellished with two sapphires, giving it a strikingly radiant gaze. Meanwhile, its mischievous snout set with brown sapphires hides a well-guarded secret: touching it transforms this piece of jewellery into a watch.
A dedicated mechanism governs the opening of the hedgehog in the middle of its back and reveals a tiny, baby hedgehog holding a watch dial in its paws.
Entirely set with diamonds the interior of the watch reveals all the splendour of an objet d’art.
