Métiers d’art Mécaniques Gravées

Vacheron Constantin 2015

ref. 1100A/000P-B026
Unisex

On the occasion of its 260th anniversary, Vacheron Constantin returns to its roots by enriching its Métiers d’Art collection with two new timepieces equipped with entirely hand-engraved movements, in keeping with the finest traditions of classic horological ornamentation. The plates and bridges of the manual-winding calibres 2260 (14-day tourbillon) and 4400 (hours, minutes) are adorned with delicate floral motifs echoing the engravings that embellished the first pocket watches developed by Vacheron Constantin from 1755 onwards. Housed in a platinum case, these two in-house-made movements feature traditional tone-on-tone motifs. These mingled scrolling and arabesque patterns pay tribute to the acanthus flower, a source of inspiration celebrated in all art forms since Antiquity.
