Maison Chaumet‘s latest addition to its fine jewelry and watch collection is a reflection on the woman who has inspired the house since its inception in 1780. The contemporary fashion icon of her time, Empress Joséphine was a multifarious woman who at once imbued strength, dignity, charisma, grace, elegance, and charm. Chaumet’s ‘Aigrette’ watch has captured the spirit of the house’s forever muse and created a timepiece as unique as the Empress who inspired it.
Singular in its shape and design, the face of the watch is a dignified pear shape, like the cut of stone the Empress preferred, and the bracelet wraps the wrist in such a way that there is no need to fasten the beginning with the end, leaving a graceful yet distinctly modern touch to the elegant timepiece. With its pavé or mirror-polished gold case, the feminine watch is at once the height of luxury and fashion, as well as dependable and pragmatic.
Whether it’s in white or rose gold, pavé or not, worn with a leather band during the day and exchanged for a satin one in the evening, the ‘Aigrette’ was created to provide the multifaceted woman multiple ways to wear a watch differently. The dial also comes in black or white, or for that extra note, completely cover it in pavé diamonds for a timepiece fit for a royalty.
