Breathtaking

La Rose and La Tulipe are two Extraordinary Watches created by Jaeger-LeCoultre. The timepieces reflect the supreme ability of Jaeger-LeCoultre gem-setters to push the limits of what is considered humanly possible.


La Rose is made up of 3100 gems (approx. 75 carats)

1,480 Pink Sapphires (approx. 42.30 carats)
130 Rubies (approx. 1.20 carats)
120 Diamonds (approx.1.50 carats)
370 Tsavorites (the garnet family stones, approx. 30 carats) used for its stems
The manual-wind JLC caliber 846 movement


The real 'dream-makers' have devoted more than 600 hours to setting each timepiece, painting a landscape composed of over 3,000 precious stones sparkling like the dew drops. The gem-setters accentuated every curve of the Jaeger-LeCoultre watches, having reproduced every petal one by one.


La Tulipe is made up of 3,350 gems (approx. 85 carats)

1,920 Yellow Sapphires (approx. 52 carats)
30 Diamonds (approx. 0.35 carats)
1,600 Tsavorites (approx. 32.50 carats) for the stems
The manual-wind JLC caliber 846 movement

Besides the hand-crafted gem-setting, Jaeger-LeCoultre has invented unique snow-setting and Rock setting techniques. The snow-setting allows the tiniest diamonds nestle against each other to merge with great refinement into watch cases. The Rock-setting finely highlight the radiance of the gems while completely covering the material below. The new techniques have opened a whole new chapter in the Jaeger-LeCoultre history, having given its gem-setters a remarkable chance to achieve an unforeseen level of purity.

The remarkable creations of La Rose and La Tulipe are specially designed to adorn the wrists of stars sparkling at the Venice International Film Festival.
