Chaumet Video. Class One Loris Cecchini

Posted by

— A new interpretation of the Place Vendôme’s first ever diver’s replica Rolex watches.


Class One has been selected to become, in a limited edition, a work of art by Loris Cecchini. This is an exclusive collaboration between a contemporary artist whose works capture the forms and movements of water and the Maison Chaumet.

To re-visit the iconic replica Rolex watch’s visual codes, Loris Cecchini was inspired by his “Wallwave vibration” piece representing the vibrations of water in movement, creating a monochromatic Class One with a unique motif.

The volume and light reflections of water come to life on the dial, adorned with lace-like mother-of-pearl and a satin-finished sunburst effect background. The wave motifs delicately overlap onto the white calf-skin fake Rolex watches strap. The watch’s case is a sculpture evoking the patterns of water’s vibrations and is presented in a sheaf designed and signed by the artist.
