Official description

Handcrafted by Tiffany & Co. artisans in Switzerland, the Bird on a Rock mechanical pendant watch re-envisions Jean Schlumberger’s iconic brooch that he created for Tiffany & Co. in 1965. For the pendant watch design, Schlumberger’s bird is repositioned in a front-facing stance as it perches atop the case. Taking 80 hours to cut and polish to an exacting standard, the case features a faceted aquamarine crystal of over 34 carats, secured by four 18K yellow gold prongs, that sits atop a dial with 461 snow-set diamonds of over 1 total carat. Over the span of 11 hours, artisans set diamonds of eight different diameters in a snow setting, where the strategic placement of diamonds of varying sizes decreases the appearance of visible metal, enhancing the brilliance of the timepiece. The platinum bird, set with over 3 total carats of diamonds, has pink sapphire eyes and 18K yellow gold feet. This one-of-a-kind timepiece is crafted with a manual winding mechanical movement with a 38-hour power reserve and 21 jewels.
