Vacheron Constantin's exquisite take on natural realism
Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Florilège collection's three new models are proof that watches are indeed works of art

From the meticulous task of guilloché-working each flower to amplify the nuances of enamels, to the careful application of Grand Feu cloisonné enamel through a number of different gestures, the Vacheron Constantin Métiers d'Art Florilège trio is a proof that botanical realism can be resurrected into a form of a timepiece. By challenging the conventionality of artistic craftsmanship, this collection draws inspiration from flowers originating from Latin America, the Himalayas and Iran-each dial is adorned with realistic-looking petals.

 

Each model is equipped with a Calibre 4400 that beats at a cadence of 28,800 vibrations per hour with a 65-hour power reserve, developed and produced by Vacheron Constantin; while the mainplate measures 28.6mm in diameter. All three models come in two styles: a bezel set with approximately 1.1 carat round-cut diamonds available in a 20-piece limited numbered edition, and another bezel set with approximately 1.9 carat baguette-cut diamonds available as a series of five numbered watches.
