In the purest jewelry tradition, DeLaCour, the renowned specialist in luxury watch making has decided to create a pen entirely set with stones.
In a world where technology has nearly replaced handwriting, this ballpoint pen revives the traditional art of writing and the pleasure of putting into ink on paper one’s most intimate thoughts and wildest dreams. Created in the image of the iconic ballpoint pen of our childhood, this writing instrument takes luxurious elegance to a whole new level with its beautiful stone-set surface.
Carefully crafted by master jewelers, each creation is a genius blend of the traditional expertise of skilled arti- sans and the performance of avant-garde tools that guarantees the highest level of quality. From the selection of the stones to the mounting, our jewelers invest their expertise into making each ballpoint pen a unique creation perfected by true technical know-how. Each creation is synonymous with performance. Dozens of hours of research and development go into creating this piece of sheer luxury.
This ballpoint pen is more than just a functional object. It is part of the tradition of “real time”, the time that one finds or decides to take specifically to handwri- te. Handwriting means taking one’s time and sharing the belief that writing is a mirror to one’s soul.
This ballpoint pen brings together the best know-how in design, jewelry and prestige writing. The pen’s body with its mounted stones is executed by famous high jewelry artisans.
With this new ballpoint pen, deLaCour reminds us that writing is an art, a view of the world, a carrier of a message.

Being as always in tune with its customers specific desires and thanks to its sense of personalization, the brand was able to once more meet a special request.
With “Eclat”, deLaCour wanted to revisit the past and offer a reinterpreted version of the classic pocket watch.
These 9 timepieces are truly exceptional and unique.
By reconnecting with a long tradition of complicated pocket watches and by contemporarily reinterpreting the codes of these classical timepieces, deLaCour con- firms the Brands status as a high-end watchmaker and designer. deLaCour offers a true masterpiece: the dial and the 53 mm white gold case are fully set with 2287 diamonds.
Nine unique timepieces were designed. Each piece featuring a unique flange set with:
- 96 baguette-cut diamonds
- or 120 yellow baguette-cut sapphires
- or 120 baguette-cut rubies
- or 120 baguette-cut blue sapphires
- or 120 baguette-cut emeralds
A diamond set white gold chain completes each timepiece.
The watch carries a hand winding DC292 caliber, a Tourbillon at 6 o’clock and a 5-day power reserve indica- tor at 2 o’clock, featuring “lancelot shaped” hands tipped with Superluminova in its dial.
The back of the pocket watch is set with diamonds and a sapphire glass allows a view at the DC292 caliber bridges as well as its logo: “deLaCour Genève”.

deLaCour unveils the impressive extent of its jewlery-making know-how for the first time in its history: CLESSIDRA, a round-shaped dual timezone piece.
This model is further elevated by the extremely delicate work of the Genevese House’s master gem-setters. By reducing the functions of this timepiece to the strict necessary, the visual effect becomes uniquely stunning.
The Clessidra is the ultimate combination of design, know-how and exquisite Swiss watchmaking. A true reflection of previous deLacour jelwery collections, this delicate feminine watch is light and consists solely of diamonds.
While refined and feminine, Clessidra masters the notion of time more than ever:
The elapsed time is represented in the dial by a luxurious clepsydra where white diamonds glow like water drops. The future time is indicated in deLacour’s motto “Since Tomorrow” and “Individually Crafted”. And of course, the present time, or rather, the “present times”, those belonging to the space that separates the place where we are from the place where we would like to be; the East and the West that span the distance to come closer together, leaving just enough space for a thin line of white diamondsv.
The contrast between the snow diamond-studded dial and the white gold case, combined with the reflections bouncing off the free diamonds allows the light to create some astonishing optic effects.
This precious timepiece has a white gold case set with 19-carat round and oval diamonds. Its dial is snow set with 3.6-carat round diamonds, while in the center the free diamonds are scattered whimsically.
Facing each other in a semi circle are two dials that indicate the local time and the time in any other desired location.
The timepiece’s bracelet is made from hand-sewn crocodile leather with a white gold pin buckle. Clessidra features two quartz movements: DC221. This jewelry masterpiece will only be made in 8 specimens.
An ultimate marriage between the fine art of watchmaking and the unique shimmer of the precious stones, Clessdira brings together state of the art gold setting techniques. The white gold shines in its diamond-clad setting only to honor the lady who wears this timepiece with the most elegant of compliments.
Since its very early days, the brand chose to present some of its models with black PVD coating.
When applied to the casing, the PVD finish offers more elegance and sturdiness, in addition to preserving the casing and protecting it from wear and tear.
The PVD used in combination with the mounted pieces lends the latters a more intense and attractive sheen.
Following the launch of its latest new models Saqra Urban and Reflect Skeleton, the Genevese house decided to complement its titanium models with a more resistant coating for these two models, the DLC.
The DLC penetrates the material at different thicknesses, which gives it the same properties as diamond. At the same time, DLC protects the casing from surface scratches.
DLC gives the casing more:
Sturdiness with the passing of time
Resistance to daily tear and wear
More than just a surface treatment; this process is also used in Formula 1 engine cars for its unique properties.
