Best Jewelry Watch 2010The Crazy Flower watch wins

At the annual Robb Report prize-giving ceremony held in Shanghai on September 26th, the Best of the Best Award in the Jewelry watch category was won by Breguet’s latest Haute Joaillerie creation: Crazy Flower. This watch combines the pure and elegant beauty of diamonds with the technical feat of mobile gem-setting.

Its case is adorned with baguette-cut diamonds set in such a way as to enable three or four asymmetrical rows to swing gently between the case middle and bezel. The 116 baguette-cut diamonds sway in step with wrist movements, evoking blooming petals fluttering in the breeze. The dial is composed of 206 brilliant-cut diamonds “inverse-set” on a concave face rimmed by a flange set with 66 brilliant-cut diamonds. The hands are delicately rounded to match the curve of the dial, and the chapter ring is set with 20 baguette-cut diamonds. A total of more than 36 carats of diamonds combine in a spectacular gem-setting accomplishment from the talented craftsmen of the Breguet Haute Joaillerie workshop.
