An automatic watch for women in a white gold case, that contains the Girard-Perregaux GP03300 movement and 27 rubies. It is exceptional above all for the diamond decoration, with 150 emerald-cut stones arranged assymetrically, centred on the small seconds. The dial, 38.6 mm wide, is slightly oval, and the overall result is visually appealing. The techniques used to set the stones are unimaginably difficult, based on Clou de Paris, in which several stones are held in place with a single pin.

The watch has a taupe colour satin strap, with ardillon buckle, itself set with 13 baguette-cut diamonds. The case back opens to reveal the movement through an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The crown is set with a single rose-cut diamond. The watch is water resistant to 30 metres.

The retail price is €352,000.
