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.
On the dial, the scenography reveals a stylised and touching ode to nature: brought to life in spectacular sculpted relief, the decor celebrates the art of jewellers, engravers, stone setters, hard stone sculptors and enamellers.
Two hydrangea blooms, distinguished by their elegant movements, take centre stage; the central diamond-set flower performs pirouettes as it indicates the hours with a pink sapphire petal. The second blossom, dressed in pink mother-of-pearl, moves gracefully around the first, animated by the rhythm of the seconds.
Thus, time is unveiled in a magical pageant, powered by a new self-winding mechanical movement born of the finest Swiss watchmaking tradition.
