A brilliant timepiece is one of the latest additions to Chaumet‘s Joséphine Aigrette collection. The storied maison continues to reign in the craft of time-telling elegance with constant incarnations of historic fashion transformed for the life of a modern-day woman.
Launched in 2010 in celebration of Chaumet Paris’ 230th anniversary, the Joséphine collection boasts the contemporary femininity of Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, Chaumet’s original muse. Not only was the Empress the first major client of Maison Chaumet, but her contemporary style along with her bold yet elegant character challenged her time. Chaumet’s additions to their Josephine collection aim to do the same.
The new Josephine Aigrette watch gracefully confronts everyday time-telling apparel to match the timeless elegance of the Empress. The unique pear-shaped watch radiates the femininity of an Empress, with a mirror-polished gold case and details delicately refined like a jewel. With no buckle in sight, the bracelet strap effortlessly wraps the wrist, characterizing the contemporary graciousness of Empress Joséphine. In Chaumet’s interpretation of the past, the new watch permeates the Joséphine collection with exciting variety, offering a myriad of colors, dials, textures, and straps suitable for every and any occasion. Whether you want leather for the day or satin for the evenings or a dial entirely in Pavé diamonds, the Josephine Aigrette watch seems to suit the needs of every modern Empress with utmost elegance.
The Joséphine Aigrette watch along with the new Joséphine Ronde d’Aigrettes jewelry, take Empress Joséphine’s style to new heights in modern quotidian wearing. Together, the collection unites the true grandeur of a historic empire with the intricacies of everyday elegance, turning yesterday’s Empress into the fashion icon of today.
