Chaumet Complication Créative Colombes

On the occasion of the Grand Prix de l’Horlogerie de Genève  2017, two Chaumet pieces will be in the spotlight. Included in the Maison’s High Jewellery collections, Chaumet precious watches combine jewellery savoir-faire with poetic narrative.

Nominated in the jewellery-watch Jewellery category, the transformable Frise Divine cuff watch is a tribute to Apollo.
 
As for watchmaking complications, Chaumet’s Complication Créative Colombes, nominated in the Ladies’ High Mech category, is an invitation to dreams and an ode to love. A limited edition of 12 pieces, it is the alliance of a Swiss mechanism designed exclusively for Chaumet and the Maison’s exceptional jewellery craftsmanship.

Embellished with diamonds and sapphires on a guilloché background, its dial represents a deep-blue enamelled sky studded with opalescent clouds and golden stars. Two sculpted, engraved and diamond-set doves are the stars of the show: in the center, the first represents the hours, pointing at them with its ring; the second bird revolves around it to indicate the minutes. Replacing the hands, the two birds indicate the time with the rings held in their beaks, forming interlacing motifs of eternal love. Gone are the traditional hands and the hours and minutes that endlessly turn round and round in a routine manner. Here, the dial doesn’t just tell the time, it tells a story.

The white gold case is set with 300 brilliant-cut diamonds (2.54 carats). Its sides are decorated with delicate, hand-engraved clouds, and stars set with diamonds. This timepiece is also adorned with a cabochon-cut, night-blue sapphire crown, and with a finely sculpted folding buckle, representing a cloud and snow-set with brilliant-cut diamonds.

The self-winding caliber CP12V-XII was designed and developed exclusively for Chaumet and executed in the purest tradition of Swiss watchmaking excellence and know-how.
