Jacob and Co Launch Fleurs de Jardin Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

American luxury watch brand Jacob & Co have launched a lavish limited edition women’s timepiece inspired by the floral season of spring.

Called the Fleurs de Jardin watch, the piece features 11 brilliant flowers of kite-shaped amethyst, pink and icy blue sapphires, tsavorites, citrines, orange garnets and rubies perched around its mother-of-pearl dial.

The entire watch has also been cast in pink sapphires, with 46 stones on the dial, 48 stones on the rose gold inner ring, 40 stones on the rose gold bezel and 50 stones on the butterfly-shaped clasp.

Other notable features include a flying tourbillon cage that rotates on itself once every sixty seconds, and a rose gold and blue lacquered globe.

The Jardin des Fleurs watch is available in two versions, with a mother-of-pearl base set with 46 icy blue or pink sapphires. Both versions are limited editions of 101 pieces.

Established in 1986, Jacob & Co. has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned jewellers and watchmakers for men and women.
