The present piece is a remarkable example of chased and skeletonized dial. The chased scene - itself skeletonized as well - depicting two birds, one perched on a branch and another intent on flying is layered atop the movement. Fully paved with brilliant cut diamonds of different sizes, it strikes the beholder with astounding level of detail, such as all the branches of the trunk or the attention to the feather decoration of each individual bird. Beyond its aesthetic appeal and refinement, it has to be pointed out that the present piece can possibly be part of a limited edition since at the moment, to the best of our knowledge, no other in white gold with such a decoration and integrated bracelet have appeared on the auction market. The subtile white-gold round case is finely preserved with a diamond set bezel that recalls the decoration inside the dial. The bracelet is precious and very complex considering its structure composed of smaller and larger elements. Absolutely remarkable, the watch for sure will strike everyone for its beauty and peculiarity.
