And this, in a dazzling setting of gold, beige, white and black harmonies, installed on the most legitimate place for jewelry and watchmaking.

After a year of work, the result, unveiled on 18 May, dazzles with its unrestrained use of the most refined materials, its works of art and its furniture selected or created especially for this hybrid place.
