Chaumet, creating watches for 200 years For the past two hundred years, Chaumet has dedicated its jewellery excellence to the creation of exceptional timepieces. The House allies the best Swiss watchmaking know-how, tradition and complex movements to its Parisian refinement it masters so well. Since the creation of its first wristwatches under the Empire, the House has asserted itself through its talent for associating bold innovation- winding-mechanism, ?à tact? watch, jumping hours, chronograph, mystery clock, metronome- with the purity of diamonds, rare precious stones, mother-of-pearl or enamel. Precise and precious, these timepiece creations have become true icons favored by the world?s leading figures, from Empress Joséphine to Duke of Westminster, not to mention Napoleon III, Queen Victoria or Winston Churchill. Jewels of feeling and emotion, they measure time and defy it.
