Capturing crashing waves in full motion, the Déferlante de Chaumet collection bears the magnetism of uncontrolled elements. Captured in motion, faithful to Chaumet’s distinct style when addressing Nature, breaking waves become a symbol of eternal strength as much as a source of benevolent life. A carefully balanced mix of tensions, Déferlante de Chaumet distils the effect of gushing water in its combination of diamonds cuts, virtuoso settings and bold angles.
A feat of jewellery and watchmaking craftsmanship, Chaumet transforms a secret timepiece into a spectacular splash of light.
A celebration of the Maison’s jewellery virtuoso, the Déferlante de Chaumet secret timepiece comes to life thanks to the ‘fil-couteau’ (‘knife edge’) setting, allowing for the diamonds to appear as in levitation. Without any circling around its secret cover, the alternation of diamonds cuts and their setting draw a living portrait of a wave. Its light, delicate secret cover reveals a white gold dial entirely engraved by hand, a nod to Chaumet’s goldsmith tradition. Set with a square diamond on the index, this exceptional dial – resembling marine currents – gives each Déferlante timepiece its resolutely unique character. Numbered and limited edition of three pieces.
