These jewelry watches, inspired by Coromandel lacquered screens that were so dear to Gabrielle Chanel, are faithfully reproduced with superb decor.
"I’ve loved Chinese screens since I was eighteen. I almost fainted with happiness the first time I saw a Coromandel in a Chinese shop... Screens were the first thing I bought," she confided about these works of art.
The motifs on Coromandel screens are reproduced in miniature on the dial in Grand Feu enamel, using the Geneva technique. The understated and elegant design of these precious watches enhances the unique artwork that decorates them.
