VENICE – Italy, 3 September 2010. Jaeger-LeCoultre debuts its Haute Joaillerie “La Rose Blanche” on the red carpet of the 67th Venice International Film Festival.

Jaeger-LeCoultre is presenting some exceptional timepieces at La Mostra, each of which displays an aspect of the Manufacture’s expertise in the traditional metiers d’art of high watchmaking. These are the first photographs of this exceptional timepiece.

The Rose Blanche focuses on the art of gemsetting. Actress Margareth Madè wore the exceptional timepiece to the Opening Ceremony Dinner at the Excelsior Hotel in Venice.

The Rose Blanche is equipped with the mechanical manufacture JLC Calibre 846 and is set with 1,210 gemstones: 900 diamonds and 310 sapphires. An extraordinary 18-carat creation blossomed after 225 hours in the gemsetting workshop of the Manufacture. The timepiece’s dial is hidden beneath a diamond and sapphire bombé pistil. The pistil opens to reveal the time on a diamond and sapphire dial with white gold hands.
