The one-off Coronet Mudan timepiece – The most diamonds set on a watch.
Peony (Mudan 牡丹) is known as the ‘King of the flowers’ in Chinese culture.” As a symbol of nobility, honour and wealth, the Peony flower inspired the world’s most diamond-laden wristwatch presented by Coronet at 2019 Baselworld – The Watch and Jewelry Show, in Switzerland.
Coronet, a signature Swiss brand of Hong Kong-based Aaron Shum Jewelry, once again exceeded expectations at 2019 Baselworld jewellery fair: the brand was awarded its 9th Guinness World Record for ‘The Most Diamonds Set On A Watch’. The Coronet ‘Mudan’ jewelry watch features 15,858 diamonds (400 ct.) set in 18k gold with artist Reena Ahluwalia’s diamond painting on the dial.
Reena Ahluwalia is an award-winning jewellery designer, diamond painter, professor, and speaker. Ahluwalia’s diamond paintings are hyper-realistic and take hundreds of hours to create.
“The diamond painting on the dial represents the shining nobility that we carry within,” explained Aaron Shum Jewelry.
There are 15,858 diamonds set in 18K gold, and a 3D painting dial with diamonds on 3, 6, 9, 12-hour position.” The ”Mudan’ watch has a total of 50.01 carats of diamonds.
Reena Ahluwalia, an award-winning jewelry designer and diamond painter said, “I feel honoured that my artwork has made it into the Guinness World Records. While growing up, I used to read about the Guinness World Records with pure amazement, so this feels very special to me.”
The luxury jewelry brand established in 1985, has nine Guinness World Records for its creations. The multinational jewellery company based in Hong Kong and holder of the Coronet signature brand holds the record for the most diamonds set on a sunglasses and on a mobile phone case.
Coronet also showcased its latest jewelry collections, including an artistic and exciting new watch collection in partnership with Reena Ahluwalia, featuring Reena’s 3D diamond paintings on the watch dial.
