With the world celebrating the 200th anniversary of Frederic Chopin this year, Chaumet is pleased to unveil its Dandy Metronome Edition watch.
The new Dandy watch represents an elegant white gold timepiece that boasts a one-of-a-kind complication to be highly appreciated by fans of watchmaking and music - the one metronomic second. The small seconds hand moves from right to left in a trapeze-shaped window on the dial, animated by the same pendulum movement as a metronome.
It is interesting to mention that Chaumet’s Salons are located at number 12, place Vendome, where Frederic Chopin composed his last Mazurka in 1849.
The Dandy watch is created in three colors. The dial and the strap are predominated by “ivory” white and “onyx” black inspired by piano keys. The second hand is presented in the shade of blue, the brand’s historical color, hinting Chopin’s great sensitivity, known as the “blue note”.
The movement beating at the heart of the Dandy Metronome Edition watch was designed in cooperation with Jean-Marc Wiederrecht. The renowned Swiss watchmaker is well-known for his subtle complications.
You can drop a glance at the sophisticated mechanics of the complication as they are visible via the smartly created openings in the dial and the case back of the Chaumet watch. The main wheel demonstrates a lyre-shaped cut-out in the center. Its timed rotation powers the back of the window and enhances the one-of-a-kind mechanism that will make you think of a metronome swinging back and forth.
The Chaumet Dandy Edition Metronome watch is presented on a black alligator strap with a white strap and equipped with a white gold buckle. It will be available in a limited number of just 100 pieces.
