CHAUMET Dandy Arty Open Face Limited Edition – « Snowy Obsidian » & « Tiger’s Eye »

Chaumet’s new Dandy Arty Open Face edition is new version of the Dandy watch, launched in 2009. The classic dial disappears to reveal the movement plate, black lacquered and surrounded by an extra-large audacious flange. Telling the time becomes horizontal with the hours and minutes positioned on one side of the dial, at 9 o’clock, and the small second’s indicator on the other, at 3 o’clock. The cushion-shaped case pays tribute to pocket watches and the crown is positioned at 12 o’clock.

In 2012, Chaumet ventures further into bold design with an Arty watch that is even more surprising than ever. The Maison’s jewellery savoir-faire adorns it with two new flanges in ornamental stones, protected by a sapphire glass. Indeed, the snowflakes of the Snow Obsidian model or the golden hues of Tiger’s Eye continue their journey towards the hours, minutes and seconds.

A miracle of nature, each ornamental stone motif is one of a kind which makes each Dandy Arty edition Open Face unique. The movement plate has been skilfully cut-out to reveal a section of the mechanism’s bridge as well as the perpetual rotation of the second’s wheel. On the reverse, the case-back unveils, through a sapphire glass that has been engraved with the emblematic Dandy striped motif, the automatic rewinding mechanism designed by Jean-Marc Wiederrecht for Chaumet, featuring an oscillating weight adorned with the Dandy tapisserie motif.

Snowy Obsidian and steel or Tiger’s Eye and pink gold are the two original duos presented for this bold new Dandy Arty, edited in two limited series of 12 and 18 pieces and equipped with a black patent leather strap with a striped satin decor and folding buckle.
