Chinese urban artist Roy Wang premiered four mesmerizing light-painting artworks, enchanting guests with a live performance featuring his signature dragon motif. This artistic endeavor was part of the Made of Makers program, emphasizing the dialogue between watchmaking and other creative disciplines.

Chef Himanshu Saini

The culinary experience was equally noteworthy, with two Michelin-starred Chef Himanshu Saini introducing four exquisite bites that fused the flavors of the Vallée de Joux with those of the subcontinent. These culinary creations provided a taste journey as refined and intricate as the timepieces themselves.

One highlight of the exhibition is the new Master Grande Tradition Calibre 948, featuring a stunning green enamel dial. This timepiece exemplifies Jaeger-LeCoultre’s mastery of watchmaking arts such as enamelling, guillochage, and lacquering. The Universal Tourbillon, a prominent feature of the watch, completes its circuit in sync with the Earth’s rotation both on its axis and around the Sun, showcasing the intricate dance of time across the globe.
