A Coronet[2] watch featuring artwork by Canadian designer Reena Ahluwalia[3] has received the Guinness World Record for most diamonds set on a watch.

With a design inspired by peonies, the ‘Mudan’ timepiece contains 15,858 diamonds (50.01 ctw) set in 18-karat gold with Ahluwalia’s hyper-realistic diamond depiction on its dial.

“I feel honoured my artwork has made it into the Guinness World Records,” said Ahluwalia. “Growing up, I read about the records with pure amazement, so this feels very special to me.”

Coronet, a Swiss brand of Aaron Shum Jewelry[4], received the honour at last week’s Baselworld[5] in Switzerland. The company already holds eight Guinness titles, including the record for most valuable guitar for an 18-karat gold piece with 400 carats of diamonds.
