  • Catalogue Essay

    Integrating traditional Swiss watchmaking with contemporary innovations, Vacheron Constantin has been creating timepieces at the highest level for centuries with a superiority in creating some of the most iconic skeletonized wristwatches since the early 1920s. The firm’s Metiers D'Art department is one that is responsible for giving an artistic life to their horological masterpieces, preserving and displaying traditional Swiss watchmaking crafts such as hand-engraving and enamelling.

    The present Vacheron Constantin Metiers D'Art Mecaniques Ajourees features a fully skeletonized movement displayed via sapphire crystals on the front and back. Detailed by hand, the engraved bridges and barrel are a sight to behold. Contrasted by a blue grand feu enamel chapter ring, skeletonized Roman numerals on top provides a sense of depth and legibility. Housed in a 40mm diameter round-shaped case in white gold, the feel is contemporary. A perfect marriage between old traditional craft fused with contemporary finishing, the present example is a perfect choice for collectors of skeletonized watches.

  • Artist Biography

    Vacheron Constantin

    Swiss • 1755

    The world's oldest watch brand in continuous operation since its founding in 1755, Vacheron Constantin was the first watch company to manufacture movements with interchangeable parts beginning in 1839. Vacheron's watches are admired for their Latin-influenced case designs, well-balanced proportions and exquisitely finished movements of the highest quality. The Geneva-based manufacturer is known for their highly complicated masterpieces, including the King Farouk Grand Complication made in 1935, the Tour de l'Ile that was the most complicated serially produced wristwatch when introduced in 2005 and the 57260 — the world’s most complicated watch — made in 2015.

    Key vintage models include minute repeating wristwatches such as the references 4261, chronographs such as the references 4178 and 6087 and the oversized Cioccolotone models such as ref. 4737. Collectors also appreciate Vacheron's Chronometer Royal pocket and wristwatches, as well as the '222,' the brand's first luxury sports watch produced from 1977 through 1984.
