Vacheron Constantin: Métiers d’Art Villes Lumières
April 15, 2017
- Vacheron Constantin welcomes a new artistic craft making its first watchmaking appearance
- Hand-applied precious powder and Grand Feu enamel are used to illustrate aerial views of international cities
- Hallmark of Geneva certified timepieces
The new Métiers d’Art Villes Lumières collection is an invitation to embark upon a nocturnal journey above cities bubbling with creativity.
On dials draped with a dark enamelled base, a wide variety of powders creates an authentic bird’s-eye view miniature tableau of these sprawling urban expanses.
The traditional Grand Feu champlevé enamelling technique is associated with hand-applied precious powder, an art never yet used in the field of Fine Watchmaking.
The striking and extremely realistic beauty of each timepiece, certified by the Hallmark of Geneva, opens up whole new artistic and creative horizons.
Within this daring and unprecedented approach, traditional skills are constantly nurtured by fresh influences.
