Chaumet’s library welcomes a second box-set of three books published by Assouline. Celebrating the High Jewellery collections and two of the Maison’s founding themes, these works mark an annual invitation to delve into Chaumet’s culture.
Gone are the traditional hands. Gone also 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 insects are the stars of the show: the pink gold spider represents the hours and the diamond-set bee the minutes, pointing to them with the tip of a wing. The backstage support is provided by an unprecedented mechanism, designed and developed exclusively for Chaumet, the CP12V-XII automatic winding calibre, a pure product of Swiss watchmaking excellence.
