XRby Rose Saneuil

The Quetzal

The first collaboration was launched in December 2020. Xavier Rousset opened the ball with Rose Saneuil, a marquetry artisan and a graduate of Ecole Boulle based in Paris: thus was born XRby Rose Saneuil.

The dial is contained in a sapphire case and displays a quetzal with shimmering colors. Resplendent quetzals were seen as sacred birds in the Mayan civilization, and were strongly associated with freedom. They are named after their resplendent plumage of emerald and ruby colour, and recognizable at first sight by the feather crest above their head.

Mrs. Rose Saneuil took advantage of materials as diverse as wood, rye straw, animal parchment, lamb leather, mother-of-pearl and beetle elytra in order to get these inimitable shades: a total of 214 elements and 16 materials were scanned in 3D for optical simulations. Is it necessary here to emphasize the intelligence of the hand, at a time when artificial intelligence is being implemented in a growing number of applications that would almost make us forget that originally… it’s only human.
