WORLD RECORD BREAKING DIAMOND WATCH TO SHINE AT JCK LAS VEGAS
The Mudan diamond watch, awarded the Guinness World Record at Baselworld for most diamonds set on a watch, will be exhibited at the upcoming JCK Las Vegas (May 31-June 3), according to IDEX Online.
Hong Kong based jeweller Coronet was awarded its 9th Guinness World Record for the unique timepiece, which is set with 15,858 diamonds totaling 50.01 carats of white and champagne diamonds, and valued at $500,000.
Canadian jewellery designer Reena Ahluwalia drew a 3D painting of a dial with diamonds on the 3, 6, 9, 12-hour positions, putting in “hundreds of hours of work” in the process. The watch, Coronet explained, is inspired by peonies “as they symbolize nobility, honor and wealth”.
