Tribute to Great Civilisations
In close collaboration with the Louvre’s museum teams, Vacheron Constantin's designers and developers have come together to create a new series of Métiers d'Art watches directly inspired by emblematic masterpieces of the Louvre.
THE “LES AÉROSTIERS” COLLECTION AND THE FABULOUS CONQUEST OF THE SKIES
Flying: a dream that dates back to the dawn of humanity, which finally became reality at the end of the 18th century. A thrilling epic that recounts the tale of the five historic Aérostier flights piloted in France, the pioneering nation in this field. For the occasion, our master craftsmen explored new creative territories to tell the magnificent story of these sky adventurers. The result is a range of gorgeous engraved gold hot air balloons - micro-sculpted by hand. Up to three weeks are needed to craft all of the subtleties and ornamental details while the time is displayed through the manufacture caliber 2460 G4.
TRIBUTE TO GREAT EXPLORERS
A time when the world had yet to be discovered. Retracing the famous epic journeys of the great 15th century explorers who braved the seas and oceans to discover distant horizons: Bartolomeu Dias, Vasco da Gama, Pedro Álvares Cabral. Vacheron Constantin celebrates their spirit of adventure through a new series of limited editions, the Métiers d'Art Tribute to great explorers. Crafted in Grand Feu enamel, each dial depicts selected portions of a 1519 map from the Miller Atlas. These masterpieces of miniaturisation and expertise are driven by the Manufacture 1120 AT movement.
“THE LEGEND OF THE CHINESE ZODIAC” COLLECTION AND JIANZHI
Vacheron Constantin celebrates Chinese New Year through the signs of the zodiac. Based on the 12-year cycle, this exceptional collection gives life to a new opus in February of each year. Each animal has been individually showcased, offering some of the most unique and original ways to read time. The Master Engravers and Enamelers have flawlessly interpreted the motifs and embellishments of traditional Chinese iconography inspired by Jianzhi, the centuries-old art of paper cutting. The sole difference is it is not crafted from paper, but rather from sculpted and engraved gold covered in Grand Feu enamel, a technique that originated in Geneva.
THE “LES MASQUES” COLLECTION AND THE MYSTERY OF CIVILIZATIONS
Born from a reflection on here and elsewhere, on the past and the present, “Les Masques” recounts a thousand years of history across four continents. Twelve masks from the Barbier-Mueller Museum’s collection have been depicted through a sculpted gold plate, showcased at the center of each watch dial. Chiseled reliefs along with interplays of light and transparency have succeeded in capturing the emotion of these centuries-old masks. Each piece is also equipped with a 2460 G4 manufacture movement. Finally, it required all of writer Michel Butor’s talent to spread the message of a far-away civilization... The watch has its secrets, which it only shares with its owner.
