Founded in 1780, the Maison Chaumet has had a long, celebrated history having navigated the years of the French Revolution to become jeweler to the emperor Napoleon before entering in 1999 the stables of the luxury group LVMH. Given that heritage, it is surprising that the brand managed to traverse the centuries that saw the apogee of flowers in jewelry design without ever producing a floral collection. "There were flowers in Chaumet's past collections but never a complete floral collection," said Thierry Fritsch, the brand's chief executive in an interview in Chaumet's salons overlooking the Place Vend? me. "This is a turning point for us and a magical moment as we establish our new floral codes. Last fall, Chaumet plucked the hydrangea, known as the "Hortensia" in French, as the new muse to which it dedicated its latest collection of haute joaillerie and replica watches inspired by the delicately luscious flower. "The flower is an integral part of the imagination of the jeweler," Mr. Fritsch said. "We chose the hortensia for its subtle complexity. "Flowers have been an essential element of brand-building for number of jewelry and watchmaking brands. Chanel has it camellia, Dior its rose, and Cartier its orchid. Chaumet's challenge was to handpick a flower that was not identifiable with another brand yet afforded sufficient aesthetic texture to inspire an entire collection. "It was the hortensia's versatility that won us over in the end," Mr. Fritsch said. Growing in billowy blossoms, the hydrangea comes in different shapes known as mop head, lace cap or conical, blooming mostly in white but also in shades of blue, red, pink or purple depending on the pH of its soil. Its natural variety makes the hydrangea both a malleable and a challenging choice for Chaumet as a recognizable symbol. While it is too soon to tell if the "hortensia" will attain an iconic status at Chaumet, the seeds of its organic growth have been sown. "Haute joaillerie, like haute couture, is a laboratory of style," Mr. Fritsch said. "We have already created 24 pieces in the Hortensia Haute Joaillerie collection and will continue to explore this flower's possibilities. "Chaumet's Hortensia replica watch collection includes seven timepieces with motifs that explore the diversity of the flower in stylized, open-worked and sculpted variations. In the haute joaillerie replica watch collection, two limited edition automatic tourbillon replica watches celebrate the blue and white hydrangeas with a floral decor executed in sculpted and hand-engraved "grand feu" enamel. Hortensia High Jewelry automatic tourbillon complication - blue Chaumet The Hortensia Riviere watch, a one-of-a-kind piece, is set with a ruby bracelet while its 18 carat pink gold dial boasts sapphires, diamonds, rubies and rubellites. Hortensia High Jewelry "Riviere" replica watch Chaumet The Secret watch, also a one-of-a-kind model, features a bouquet of pink hydrangeas to conceal a white mother-of-pearl dial, revealed only as the flowers, paved with brilliant-cut diamonds and set with pink sapphires, sculpted cabochon-cut opals and tourmalines are moved aside. Hortensia High Jewelry "Secret" replica watch Chaumet The force behind the Hortensia collection is Chaumet's creative director, Claire Deve-Rakoff, a long-time independent designer of costume jewelry whose pedigree includes top brands like Chanel, Harry Winston and Swarovski. When Ms. Deve-Rakoff joined Chaumet in 2012, she was new to designing replica watches. "I was not told that I would be designing replica watches, so for research and inspiration, I searched the house archives and roamed through the Musee des Arts Decoratifs," Ms. Deve-Rakoff said. "For me, the main challenge was to bring modernity to the traditional theme of the flower," she said. Feminine and delicate, the pieces in the replica watch collection derive their modernity from their architectural asymmetry, the overlay of stones and colors and the geometric rhythm of the pieces that flows from their subtle gradation of color. Whether the "Hortensia" will become an iconic symbol of the Maison Chaumet, only time will tell. "We were not looking for a new symbol for Chaumet," Mr. Fritsch said. "Still, we wish our Hortensia line a long life. " Luxurious watchmaker Jaeger-LeCoultre is honoring artist Gustav Klimt's popular The? Kiss while using the Atmos? Marqueterie clock. In 1904, Klimt was commissioned by a Belgian financier to generate mural mosaics at a mansion in Brussels; one of the items the artist created was The? Kiss , the gilded portray which grew to become the emphasize of his Golden Period. Over a century? later, Jaeger-LeCoultre is celebrating? Klimt's function along with the ten-piece restricted version Atmos? Marqueterie clock.
The clock is housed within a cabinet comprised of more than one,400 small items of wooden, separately lower and gilded with gold leaf while in the same method utilised by Klimt, just before currently being glued alongside one another to create a hand-made marquetry motif. Different gold shades, ranging from yellow to pink, recreate the painting and its well-known shimmering glow. Only the most precious varieties of wood were employed, such as amboyna burl, camassari boxwood, ceylon? lemonwood, paolo amarela and madrona burl.
A button concealed inside of the motif opens on the cupboard to reveal the clock, housed in just a protective rhodiumed? crystal glass. The organic mother-of-pearl dials are decorated through the unique? displays of the hours, minutes, thirty day period and moon-phase indications. For the sixty minutes mark, a cushion-cut yellow sapphire marks the celestial zenith, although lozenge-shaped? petrified? wood decorates the hour-markers. A golden? moon in a very petrified wooden disc is set with brilliant-cut? diamonds, while the month wheel tops a silvertoned? brass crown. Blue varnished hands total the dial.
For the coronary heart of this clock beats a Jaeger-LeCoultre Calibre 582? perpetual system, driven completely by tiny thermal modifications in temperature. An hermetically sealed capsule that contains a gaseous mixture (initially mercury, just before its poisonous results turned recognized) dilates if the temperature rises and contracts when it drops. Related with? the clock's mainspring, the capsule or concertina performs like a mechanical lung? breathing in and out to wind the barrel in line with atmospheric fluctuations. Even the smallest variations in temperature generate the mechanism, guaranteeing an extra 48-hour power? reserve. In the meantime, its ring-type or annular stability oscillates just twice a? minute, using much less power than even a wristwatch. To be a result, that is a truly environmentally friendly clock - according to Jaeger-LeCoultre, it would take? 60 million Atmos clocks to match? the intake of the regular 15-watt gentle bulb!
