Precious watches are inspired by nature; a nature that is stylised, touching and bucolic, expressing a different dimension of time, of movement, of emotion and celebrating the savoir-faire of jewellers, engravers, stone setters, sculptors, miniature painters and watchmakers who perpetuate and enrich the Maison’s watch collections. Each timepiece embodies the extraordinary dreams, creativity, technical ingenuity and jewellery expertise of Chaumet.
The Hortensia collection blossoms with wondrous bouquets of gold and precious stones in creations that are an ode to eternal beauty.
The dial of this diamond-set white gold watch reveals a tourbillon mechanism. The tourbillon is situated at 6 o’clock on a background of grand feu enamel decorated with a corolla of hydrangeas; each applied flower has been sculpted and hand-engraved, then enamelled with silver foil in its centre. A sapphire glass back unveils the hand-winding mechanical movement – a CP 12V-X caliber – featuring the hydrangea flower design on the upper disc and main plate. The alligator leather strap and its jaw pin buckle adorned with white gold and diamond-set hydrangea flowers is the perfect finishing touch for these subtly refined Haute Horlogerie timepieces.
