Jaeger-LeCoultre will present a pink gold version of its Joaillerie at this summer’s Venice International Film Festival.
For the occasion, Jaeger-LeCoultre will use the Calibre 101 to symbolise of the unique expertise of the watchmakers of the Grande Maison and the smallest mechanical movement in the world since its creation in 1929.
At almost 100 years old, the Joaillerie remains among the smallest mechanical movements in the world, measuring 14mm x 4.8mm, with a thickness of 3.4mm.
Each of its 98 hand-made components is custom manufactured and weigh barely a gram each.
To best reflect the glamorous world of the Venice International Film Festival, the Joaillerie 101 Reine and Joaillerie 101 Feuille are each adorned with 110 pavé diamonds, nestled against one another and arranged by hand at the Manufacture’s workshops.
