Vacheron Constantin – August 2019 News

We also feature the rare Metiers D’art Métiers D’Art Mécaniques Gravées below, which has a magnificent hand-engraved calibre also acting as a dial. The incredible craftsmanship celebrates the roots of classical ornamentations. More specifically, these floral designs play with acanthus leaves, “the” founding ornamental pattern that inspired Western Arts since Antiquity, namely architecture, sculpture, painting, embroidering and engraving.
