Chaumet Class One Loris Cecchini Limited Edition Watch

Chaumet Class One Loris Cecchini

This elegant Chaumet partnered with an artist who came from Italy. It is a limited eiditon watch inspired by his aquatic creations. The watch sold in a limited edition of 300.

Given carte blanche, Cecchini chose to reinterpret Chaumet’s bestselling Class One ladies’ dive watch with a dial and strap bearing a motif inspired by his piece “Wallwave vibration,” which captures the forms and movements of water.  Front of Chaumet Class One Loris Cecchini
The white watch features a lacelike mother-of-pearl dial on a satin-finished steel background. The wave motif overlaps on the white calfskin strap. The stainless steel case is set with 38 brilliant-cut diamonds and engraved Chaumet Paris. The quartz timepiece and two additional bracelets are housed in a sculpted white box with a removable casing that doubles as a sculpture. Cecchini said he was interested in using technology in his work, which often relies on software and borrows concepts from architecture and engineering.

“I think that technology is a part of our landscape, it’s a part of our culture, so when I met them and I learned how a watch is done, I learned a lot of things in terms of reduction, thickness and space,” he said. “It’s a monochromatic piece but if you move it, you have the colors inside and this is fantastic.”Chaumet Class One Loris Cecchini dial 02Cecchini has previously collaborated with a host of fashion brands, customizing the Lady Dior and Fendi Baguette bags for exhibitions and creating installations for the Bulgari hotel in Milan and the Chanel Mobile Art pavilion, among others.

“Usually the invitation [from fashion brands] is very welcome, also because you can work easily in terms of production,” he said. “Compared with museums and galleries, this kind of relationship is different and gives you a lot of freedom. You’re not restricted necessarily in your own world.”Chaumet Class One Loris Cecchini dial
