Vacheron Constantin Dove Watch - Applied Arts and Creative Horology

Jul 04, 2011
Vacheron Constantin is happy to deliver its new one-of-a-kind Dove watch. Specially manufactured for Only Watch 2011, it carries on the Metiers dArt tradition, which successfully unites applied arts and creative horology.

The inspiration behind the new Vacheron Constantin watch is a drawing by a Dutch graphic artist Maurits Cornelis Escher. The novelty is set in a 40mm case in 18-carat white gold. Its water-resistance is assured down to 30 meters.

The model comes equipped with a white gold dial. It is skillfully engraved and graced by champleve enameling. The face of the new Vacheron Constantin Dove watch sports red birds, performed in translucide enameling. The white birds are done in opalescent enameling, while the gold birds are guilloched by hand.

The hallmark feature of the display is a bird, paved with 40 brilliant-cut diamonds, totaling to 0.08 carats. The dial indicates central hours, minutes and seconds.

Breathing life into the functions is an in-house manufactured calibre 2460 movement. It comprises 182 individual parts, including 27 jewels. The movement supplies a 40-hour power reserve.

The new Vacheron Constantin watch is accompanied by a black Mississippiensis alligator leather strap, stitched by hand. It joins to a white gold buckle, adorned with a polished half Maltese cross.
