The spirit of discovery
Everything is open to those who are open up to everything. Dedicated to the explorers of today, the Overseas collection perfectly embodies their passion for travel and discovery. The magnetic attraction for uncharted places, the desire to always see what is beyond; this is where the inspiration of the new Overseas models comes from.
The audacious openworked movement of the Overseas skeleton is an object of endless wonderment for those who want to see everything with their own eyes. This amazing moving sculpture made of light and shade gives a new aesthetic and physical dimension to the passage of time.
The infinite reflections of the new blue ultra-thin dial of the Overseas perpetual calendar, beautifully resonate as a vibrant tribute to the greatest depths of the ocean. The full gold bracelet and case create a bold contrast giving the timepiece a distinctive new character.
A touch of eternity
Being rooted in almost three centuries of tradition doesn’t prevent us from imagining. For our watchmakers from the Grandes Complications workshops, the best way to pay tribute to their ancestors is rather to keep creating more complex and amazing horological complications.
Today, the manufacture is proud to introduce you to its latest precious interpretations of this emblem of Haute Horlogerie: the Tourbillon. For the first time in the history of the Maison, this iconic complication, originally designed to compensate the effect of gravity, is integrated into a lady model. In this new version, the tourbillon shifts into a poetic feeling, as it offers to the eye the hypnotizing ballet of mechanical pieces.
This iconic complication finds also a new expression in a gentleman timepiece which brings together in one technical masterpiece a monopusher chronograph and a tourbillon. Tourbillions and chronograph-complications are the achievements of outstanding technical sophistication and unique craftsmanship, this is why they only require the most discreet display to catch the eye of the connoisseurs.
La musique du temps
Artists share the same quest for perfection. House of model personalisation and unique creations, Les Cabinotiers has always been the ideal place within the manufacture of Vacheron Constantin for the expression of our artistic sensibility. There, masters of many Métiers d’Art combine their skills and ancestral know-how to turn dreams into reality.
The collection " La Musique du Temps” unveils a dual poetic interpretation of the intimate relationship between the music and the passage of time. Relying on the peerless talent of our master-enameller, this collection proposes to capture the wonderful moment of a flying bird and freeze it in a truer-than-life reality. The result is four one-of-a-kind delicate masterpieces as a tribute to the uniqueness and the fragility of wildlife.
Because it takes an orchestra of hundreds to create the perfect chime, our craftsmen from Les Cabinotiers also excel in the art of music. Between their hands, time becomes the orchestra conductor of a symphony following the sophisticated movements of our minute repeaters. Each of these unique pieces, created with ambition and unsurpassed virtuosity, have conclusively proven that even the wildest dreams can come true.
The keyword for all these horological complications is the uniqueness of each timepiece and their chimes. Therefore, in order to preserve these precious melodies, the Maison performs for each of them a benchmark sound footprint in the prestigious studios of Abbey Road attested by an official certificate.
Its name already illustrates the promise of a rich imaginary universe in which numerous inspiration sources intertwine. Égérie, the new high-end watchmaking collection, revealed this year by our Maison, is available in a range designed as an ode to femininity.
To pay tribute to women, our designers and master watchmakers drew on an art form, whose main purpose is to transcend their exquisite nature: Haute Couture. The Égérie moon phase, ultimate expression of this perfection in elegance, returns, dressed in a dazzling set of diamonds, to celebrate an ideal of eternal beauty.
A NOTE OF STYLE
Imbued with the hectic atmosphere of big cities, the world of musical creation and vintage design, the Fiftysix collection reinterprets each time with talent, this classic created by our manufacture in 1956. Appearing in silhouette both retro and very contemporary, this collection stands at the crossroad of multitude of influences always perfectly in rhythm with the tempo of its time.
This standard of our fine watchmaking creations appears today in a new version with deliciously vintage notes of a sepia-brown dial reflecting different tones according to the light of the moment.
