Faubourg Joaillerie by Hermés makes mini look so good
Small yet stunning, this timepiece by Hermés will take your breath away

The only thing that is miniature about the Faubourg Joaillerie by Hermés, is the size of its face at 16mm. Slim and elegant, the timepiece boasts 652 diamonds in total. With 264 of the diamonds covering the dial, case and crown alone, the design looks simple yet decadent at the same time.

Set in white gold, the white Wesselton diamonds fan out from the middle of the dial and stretch out to the rest of the case. Attached to it, are two white gold mesh bracelets that encircle the wrist. What makes it special is the skill and patience required by the artisans to cover each slender bracelet with the remaining 388 diamonds. Once the diamonds are carefully readjusted by the artisans, it is fitted perfectly with the timepiece and is transformed into one of Hermés finest creations.
