In a nod to the Maison’s flagship boutique, studio and workshop at 12 Place Vendôme, the Complication Créative Colombes timepieces are limited to just twelve models. Each model will be exclusively retailed through Chaumet’s most prestigious worldwide locations, with the number 12 version now available at The Dubai Mall boutique at Dhs 507,000.
The timepieces were revealed at the end of 2017 and blend beautiful design with technical sophistication. The watch’s midnight blue dial centres on a pair of diamond doves in mid-flight, each holding a hoop in its beak. Every hour the birds meet with the hoops forming a figure of eight, the traditional symbol of eternity.
Complication Créative Colombes timepiece, Dhs 507,000, Chaumet
These mechanical timepieces mark a new chapter in Chaumet’s history as a leading example of High Watchmaking savoir-faire. Instead of hands and minute or hour markers, the first dove points at the hour with its ring, whilst the second rotates around it indicating the minutes. This mechanism was exclusively developed by Chaumet’s watchmaking experts with a self-winding caliber CP12V-XII.
The folding diamond buckle is in the shape of clouds
Set within a white gold case encrusted with 2.54-carats of brilliant-cut diamonds, with further diamond stars and engraved clouds on the sides and a folding diamond buckle, the Complication Créative Colombes is a must-have addition for any watch connoisseur.
