Jaeger-LeCoultre Ref. 165.1.86 Diamond
Looking for something unique? Look no further!
This Jaeger-LeCoultre pendant watch is draped in Art Deco in its purest form. The art, design and architecture movement was prevalent from 1920 until 1939 and found its origins when a collective of French artists united in La Société des artistes décorateurs. In 1925 they organized the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes as a means of promoting French design and art internationally. The term Art Deco was introduced much later in 1968 when art historian Bevis Hiller described the movement.
The style is characterized by its rich decorations, use of color and geometric shapes. A clear distinction from the earlier Art Nouveau which was more organic in its design language. This watch clearly shows layer upon layer of design elements, combined with sharp, straight lines and angles. The entirety is executed in a rich 18 karat yellow gold and studded with diamonds.
