Since my childhood I have always loved the Place Vendôme with its imposing facades, beautiful street lightning, and its iconic column in the center of the square. And not to forget, the beautiful boutiqurs housed on on the Parisian square, Boucheron, Breguet, Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, and of course Chaumet. I still cherish s my automatic golden Jump Hour watch.
Since its creation in 1780 in Paris, Chaumet’s history merges with the history of France, quickly becoming the official jeweler of Empress Josephine. The Maison’s Fine Jewelry know-how has been passed down for nearly 240 years from one generation to the next. Created in the heart of Place Vendôme, the jewellery and watchmaking creations, for women and men, reflect these exceptional know-how and bear witness to Parisian taste.
The oldest jeweler at the Place Vendôme, Paris, never ceases to amaze with his ability to anchor himself in the air of the times. Intimately linked with history, Chaumet’s great hours still nourish the creativity of the Maison and constitute an unbroken thread between past, present and future. Today the French Maison unveils the Infiniment 12 – Rêverie Nocturne watch, a virtuoso tribute to the Maison’s 240th anniversary and the reopening of the12 Vendôme hôtel particulier.
Produced in a limited series, this exceptional creation brings together several highly specialised crafts, such as grand feu enamel by artist Anita Porchet. Each dial is secretly adorned with a tiny stone from 12 Vendôme, enabling the wearer to carry a little bit of Chaumet and the mythical Place Vendôme with them wherever they go.
