Located at 12 Place Vendôme, Chaumet will open its doors to the public for the duration of its exhibition in the Baudard de Saint James salons highlighting the role of architecture and the decorative arts as sources of inspiration for jewellery pieces. Visits by reservation only, from 23rd to 30th March. Reservations opening soon.
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.
