The House of Chaumet is a brand whose heritage is always on show and this dainty 27mm Liens de Chaumet watch - presented in a bi-colour stainless steel and yellow gold case and bracelet - is no exception. The iconic X, or link motif, which has appeared on Chaumet jewellery since its creation in 1780 is reinterpreted here in a contemporary mood. Viewed in profile, the external links hug the perimeter of the case and flow gently towards the bracelet. Three links are united to form the supple bracelet with a central row of yellow gold flanked by stainless steel, bringing a dose of elegance and resilience to the watch. The silvery white galvanic dial is interrupted by vertical lines in the centre, and the hours, minutes and seconds run seamlessly on a Swiss quartz movement. Petite, sophisticated and chic, this watch is resilient enough to be worn each and every day of the year.
