In this month of January 2017, the various high jewellery collections have almost all unveiled in parallel pieces of high watchmaking and more precisely jewel watches with secrets richly set with diamonds or coloured stones in the image of the house of Giampiero Bodino or the house of Dior where opals are, this year, the main thread of Victoire de Castellane.

Here is an overview of the models that have seduced me and in which the jewellers’ talent is fully expressed!
