In close collaboration with the Musée du Louvre, Vacheron Constantin presents a new series of watches in its Métiers d’Art collection dedicated to the great civilisations of Antiquity. The Persian Empire of Darius the Great era is represented by the emblematic work chosen from among the masterpieces conserved in the Louvre, the Lion de Darius, reproduced in the form of a miniature sculpted gold applique. For the engraver of the applique depicting one of the lions, the challenge was to achieve an accurate rendering that matched the advanced stylisation of the muscles and fur of the noble creature’s mane that can be seen on the original. As the lions are part of a frieze, the watch face in the background had to represent this decoration of glazed bricks affixed to a wall. To achieve this, the artisans opted for stone marquetry. This Métiers d'Art Tribute to great civilisations – Lion de Darius watch revives its full splendour.
