I loved Jaeger LeCoultre for its incredibly slick and feminine timepieces. I loved them even more when they chose Diane Kruger as their spokeface.
Now I’m looking at this …. piece for two days already and I haven’t the slightest idea how to react. No doubt there was a lot of work involved (1,300 hours of gem-setting), it looks incredible, but it’s too green and blingy to attract me. It’s like wearing a piece of the enchanted wood on my wrist and even if it sounds beautiful, I still get the creeps. The ivy leaves are made of gold and tendrils too. The gems (tsavorites, yellow sapphires, emeralds yellow diamond) add to the beauty and cost of this piece. Because if you thought you could try it on and see if you get the same creeps as I did, think again – the enchanted wood on your wrist costs $4,3 million. There’s not just the watch in that money – there’s also a ring, a bracelet and a necklace. How does it look to you (price aside)? (don’t miss the picture with the entire collection right after the jump!)
