Vacheron Constantin – August 2019 News
This month we feature some of Vacheron Constantin’s rare timepieces. Vacheron Constantin’s Traditionnelle line is reserved for contemporary interpretations of Geneva’s grand watchmaking tradition. Below we feature the elegant dress watch Patrimony Traditionelle Tourbillon in pink gold.
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.
