Starting March 2019, Maison Chaumet will occupy new quarters at the prestigious Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris. An ephemeral boutique that will remain open during the restoration of the 12 Place Vendôme, the Maison’s historic address.
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.
