Here is the clock covered with the largest number of diamonds: 15.858. It is the world record of Coronet ♦ ︎
Once they presented an electric guitar made with 1.6 kilograms of 18 carat gold and 400 carats of diamonds. Last year it was the turn of a bottle-shaped Coca-Cola bag also with a maxi pavé of diamonds. Another record. But Coronet could not avoid have another world record, the ninth, on the official record of the Guinness Book of Records. So at Baselworld the Chinese jewelry company showed a watch covered with diamonds. What is the extraordinary aspect? The record for “the largest number of diamonds on a watch”.
The clock of the ninth Guinness is called Mudan, the Chinese name of the peony, and is covered with 15,858 diamonds, for a total of 50.01 carats. The timepiece (but perhaps it should be called the diamonds time ) is made in 18-carat gold with a diamond dial designed by the artist Reena Ahluwalia, who has already collaborated with Coronet. The clock is inspired by the peony flower, which for Chinese culture symbolizes nobility, honor and wealth. The diamond-shaped painted display made by Reena “represents the brilliant nobility we carry inside”. Peony (Mudan 牡丹) is known as the king of flowers in Chinese culture.
“This is the ninth time that Coronet was honored with a Guiness World Records title. We are proud to present our unique Mudan watch with the masterpiece of the artist Reena Ahulwalia on the clock face, a hyper-realistic painting of a diamond “.
