How Much is a Chaumet Dandy Watch? 

The Chaumet Dandy watches exhibit sophistication and elegance, all while incorporating stylish and masculine touches that can truly grab urbane men’s attention. These luxury goods are all crafted from high-quality materials and come with patterned dials and cushion-shaped cases. What’s more, they also have fluted crowns which are placed at 3 o’clock, and come with dark blue sapphire stones that add a fancy appeal.  If you are wondering how much you have to shell out to get your very own Chaumet Dandy timepiece, here is a detailed rundown of the collection’s most famous models, along with their prices and important specifications. 

Chaumet Dandy Extra Large Blue Dial

The Chaumet Dandy Extra Large Model Ref. W84416-001 is the watch for fans of timeless yet daring pieces. Right off the bat, this is a conversational piece that can easily add flair to any outfit, all thanks to its large 40mm cushion-shaped stainless steel case. The striped pattern on the dial that runs through the 6 o’clock and 7 o’clock positions is called Bayadère, and it adds even more character to the watch’s signature royal blue sunray dial. Avid fans know that this Bayadère motif graces almost all the watches in the Dandy collection, making for easier distinction and identification of the Chaumet Dandy models. 

The Arabic numeral at 12 o’clock breaks up the uniformity of the baton-style indices that can be found at the other hour positions, drawing one’s eyes to that numeral hour marker. An inconspicuous date display is located at 9 o’clock. A detailed sub-dial dedicated to the sweep seconds function is placed at the 6 o’clock position, giving the dial a perfect symmetry. Protected by a curved anti-reflective sapphire crystal, this automatic watch runs on a 27-jewel movement with a 42-hour power reserve. All in all, you can have this stellar model for just $7,460 USD.

Chaumet Dandy Large Silver

If you’re not a fan of vibrant colors and pieces with overly bold aesthetics, why not go for the Chaumet Dandy Large Model Ref. W83874-001? This stunning watch shares the same style as the previous model but has a silver and black appearance instead, espousing a more subtle look. While the W84416-001 model comes with a blue background that covers the whole dial and has a bigger case size that is perfect for those with larger wrists, the W83874-001 has a slimmer 38mm size and boasts an all-silver face that gives off a very smart and industrial appearance. Moreover, the signature found at the center of the dial also bears a silver hue that matches the overall aesthetic of the stainless steel case and lugs. 

This dress watch sports a black strap made out of true alligator leather and a grey Nubuck lining that enhances its classic design. Inside, the watch runs on a 21-jewel Swiss-made mechanical automatic movement, which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and has a 42-hour power reserve. Slightly cheaper than the other watches in the Dandy collection, this timepiece costs around $6,270 USD.

Chaumet Dandy Large Blue Dial

For those that want another time and date-only model, there is a piece that retails at just $5,835 USD, and perfectly fuses the features of the two models mentioned above. As one of the cheaper pieces from the Dandy line, the Chaumet Dandy Large Ref. W11288-16B is your best bet if you like adding a sophisticated flair to your outfits by experimenting with attractive hues that are not too loud. With a 38mm stainless steel case and a dark blue alligator strap that has a polished stainless steel pin buckle, this watch is versatile enough to match all kinds of occasions.

Chaumet Dandy Large Pink Gold

Another popular watch is the Chaumet Dandy Large Model Ref. W11888-16C, which is priced at around $18,300 USD. This model boasts a beautiful cream-colored dial in sand finish that contrasts its lovely rose gold case. Just like the Ref. W11288, this watch comes in a 38mm case and has a padded leather strap that feels light on the wrist. Furthermore, it also has a sub-dial dedicated to the sweep seconds function at the 6 o’clock position, which gives it a more sporty feel. In terms of performance, it runs on an automatic 17-jewel movement, and has a power reserve of up to 42 hours. 

Chaumet Dandy Chronograph

Slightly more expensive than the aforementioned timepiece, the Chaumet Dandy Chronograph Ref. W11190-30F sways away from the usual men’s dress watches with its diamond-studded bezel and dial. What makes this one timepiece stand out from the rest is its chronograph feature, which takes the form of two subdials. It sports a jet black dial with a striking blue second hand. Moreover, it also has a mini date display at the 6 o’clock position, along with lavish gem-studded hour markers. You can get your hands on this chic bicompax timepiece for around $19,000 USD.

Legendary Beginnings of the Chaumet Dandy Watch

The story of the Chaumet Dandy wristwatches began in 2003, when Chaumet finally decided that it was time for them to venture out into a new niche that could bring them the growth they had been craving: watchmaking. From only offering timepieces for the ladies, such as the Hortensia and Class One watch collections, the brand eventually started producing dress watches for the urbane gentleman who prioritizes form and function. Taking inspiration from Chaumet’s rich and historic roots, all the watches in the Dandy collection come in a shape that resembles a diamond, acquired by French military leader and politician Napoleon Bonaparte in 1801, called Regent. 

Skimming through the present Dandy catalog, you will notice that the fashion house only opts for heavy-duty materials such as rose gold, white gold and stainless steel for the case. Not only did they provide good variation when it comes to case sizes, they also made sure that the dials would have a variety of different colors and layouts ranging from blue, white, silver, black, and more, with the four vertical line Bayadère motif as the collection’s main unifying factor. Since they are dress watches, expect all of the pieces from this line to come with fairly low water resistance ratings of 30 meters. Despite this, the Chaumet Dandy timepieces still come with superior longevity since their powerful automatic movements have an average power reserve of 42 hours. 

Why Should You Buy a Chaumet Dandy Watch?

Whether you are craving for a trusty everyday timepiece or a dress watch that could easily make you the center of attention at any event you go to, the Chaumet Dandy collection is just what you need to make these goals come true. With the French brand’s admirable reputation, these pieces will surely retain their value, much like how Chaumet’s diverse range of luxury jewelry remains relevant to this today.

But if you still need more evidence that buying a Chaumet Dandy is the right decision, then here are a few reasons that might finally convince you:

1. High-precision Swiss movements

With their top-tier finishes characterized by angled bridges and blue-colored steel screws, the movements in all Dandy pieces promise excellent accuracy. Adorned with intricate stones that can also be found in Chaumet’s luxury jewelry lines, these timepieces will absolutely last you a long time. 

2. Eye-catching dials

Aside from their cushion shapes, each Dandy model becomes recognizable with Chaumet’s signature striped dials that carry beautiful Bayadère motifs. You will surely get tons of questions from on-lookers with these striking statement pieces. 

3. Sapphire crystal

Aside from boasting anti-reflective coatings that help make reading the time easier, the sapphire crystals that Chaumet Dandy watches are equipped with are also durable enough to protect them from accidental impacts and scratches.

4. Collectible pieces

All Dandy pieces come with similar dial designs, but the wide range of strap choices and enthralling color combinations are what make them enticing to own. 

5. Luxury goods with a reasonable price

While they do fall on the expensive side, all Chaumet Dandy watches still carry a much fairer price tag compared to competing luxury watch brands. You can even get your hands on a decent Chaumet Dancy piece for just $1,816 USD.

Chaumet Dandy - Style and Quality in One

There is no doubt that Chaumet was truly able to outdo itself with the Dandy collection. This collection proves that men’s dress watches should not just be about minimalism and handsome looks. Instead, they should also come with well-crafted components such as a hardy sapphire crystal, a secure screwed-in crown and a durable strap, all of which ensure a powerful and convenient timekeeping process. With pioneering designs starting from the case shape to the dials that scream finesse, this line shows that it is able to meld the best of both worlds together – unbeatable quality and elevated style.
