Métiers d’Art Villes Lumières

 

 

Darkness has fallen on Geneva… an irresistible

opportunity for another demonstration of virtuoso artistry from Vacheron

Constantin, as we take a bird's-eye view of the city below. Traditional Grand

Feu enamel becomes the backdrop for a sprinkling of precious powders of gold,

pearl, platinum and diamond, meticulously applied by hand. Only a rare few

artists are able to perform this technique. One is Yoko Imai, a Japanese

artist; Vacheron Constantin has invited her to apply this expertise to the dial

of its Métiers d'Art Villes Lumières Geneva watch – part of a limited edition

with New York and Paris. Over a period of three months, between the sculpted

gold outlines on the enamelled surface of the dial, tens of thousands of

precious specks bring the aerial view of the city's nightscape to life. A

twinkling of light to illuminate the birthplace of precious and technical

watchmaking.
