XRby Rose Saneuil

The Quetzal

€ 21,600.00

The first collaboration was born in December 2020. Xavier Rousset opened the ball with a marquetry craftswoman, a graduate of the Ecole Boulle and based in Paris: XRby Rose Saneuil. The dial is topped by a sapphire case and it is a quetzal with shimmering colors that stands out. This bird, sacred in the Mayan civilization and a symbol of freedom, has a resplendent plumage of emerald and ruby colors. To give the dial these brilliant colors, Ms. Rose Saneuil took advantage of materials as diverse as wood, rye straw, animal parchment, lambskin, mother-of-pearl and beetle elytra with inimitable shades: a total of 214 elements and 16 materials were scanned in 3D to produce optical simulations. Is it necessary to underline the intelligence of the hand, at a time when artificial intelligence is implemented in a growing number of applications that would almost make us forget that originally … it was only human
