The ‘Mudan’ watch features 15858 diamonds set in 18K gold with artist Reena Ahluwalia's unmatchable diamond painting on the dial.


(Basel, Switzerland, March 22nd, 2019) – CORONET yet again exceeded expectations at the 2019 Baselworld watch and jewelry trade fair. The brand was awarded its 9th GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS with the ‘most diamonds set on a watch’. CORONET is already a proud title holder of previous 8 GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for innovative diamond creations, including the most valuable Guitar featuring 1.6kg of 18K gold and 400 carats of diamonds.  


The recently GWR awarded 'Mudan' diamond watch by CORONET is an incredible art-piece featuring 15,858 diamonds. The watch is set in 18K gold with artist Reena Ahluwalia's unmatchable diamond painting on the dial. Reena Ahluwalia’s coveted diamond paintings are hyper-realistic and take hundreds of hours to paint. The watch is inspired by Peonies, as they symbolize nobility, honor and wealth. Reena's diamond painting on the dial represents the shining nobility that we carry within. Peony (Mudan 牡丹) is known as the 'King of the flowers' in the Chinese culture.

This is the ninth time that Coronet has been honored with a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. We are proud to showcase our one-of-a-kind 'Mudan' watch with artist Reena Ahulwalia’s masterpiece on the watch's dial - a hyper realistic painting of a diamond. 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, diamond painter said, “I feel honored 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.”
