Amethyst is used extensively in the JwlryMachine Purple. You’ll find it as the large cabochon style eyes at the top of the hour and minute indicator cylinders, as well as over the open movement. The crystal there is specially engraved to look like feathers. What is really cool, is that it is semi transparent. Meaning you can still see the 22k gold battle ax style automatic rotor spinning underneath it. Another amethyst is used as a cabochon on the crown. The watch has about 41 carats of amethyst. Aside from amethyst you’ll find a few precious stones on the complex case. These include about a carat of diamonds, as well as over 5 carats of mixed blue and purple sapphires. The JwlryMachine Pink has a few changes, but remains more or less the same. First, the case is in 18k pink gold versus white gold. Instead of amethyst, the watch design uses pink toned quartz and rubellite. It also has diamonds, and a mix of pink, purple, and blue sapphires. This should be a nice “day owl” compliment to the night owl. I have to say that the combined effort of replica Alain Silberstein and Boucheron is really rewarding. The two respected brands have melded their talents well. and the “JwlryMachine” might have an ‘interesting’ name but a face anyone can love. The HM3 Frog proved that this was a design meant for eyes, and this is a version of the watch that really proves it. The HM3 JwrlyMachine retains the ability to tell the time, but the date complication has been probably partially obstructed due to the design. I think that is an acceptable trade-off for this fantastic three-dimensional machine and jewelry sculpture. The watch will come on a purple (or otherwise) toned alligator strap with a 18k gold and titanium deployment clasp. Where can you get one? How much will it cost. Distribution will be highly limited and watches will be mostly made to order. A few replica A.Lange&Sohne retailers will carry them, but for the most part the watches will be available through Boucheron boutiques around the world. Prices for the replica Ulysse Nardin HM3 JwlryMachine will start at $215,000 and depend on the version as well as exchange rates. This isn’t the MB&F watch we used to. You don’t see precious or semi-precious stones on their watches. The JwlryMachine is certainly a change of pace for the luxury machine style watch MB&F is known for producing. Some people might see that as an issue, but I could care less about the thematic departure. This is simply a revision of their aesthetic as dreamed up by Boucheron, and a beautiful item of interest for all people to enjoy. The real question is, can a man pull off wear it? I am imagining a custom model in all black and while with yellow eyes. That would work.
