Skeleton watches

Only the association of several traditional Fine Watchmaking crafts can give rise to such works of art. The creation of skeleton watches, or the art of playing with transparency and making light dance across gleaming metal to transform a watch movement into an ethereal ballet of openworked bridges and wheel trains, is an art long since mastered by the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin. An art that requires for complementary skills: that of the Master Watchmaker to handle the mechanical demands; that of the Master Chamferer to capture the light and reveal the quintessence of the movement; and finally, that of the Master Engraver to sublimate the movement with a décor that gives life to skeleton watches.
