FAN FLAIR

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style -

High­light­ing its mas­tery in women’s watches, Vacheron Con­stantin pre­sented a new col­lec­tion of jew­elled time­pieces called Heures Créa­tives. The di­a­mond-set pieces are in­spired by three iconic pe­ri­ods: art nou­veau, art deco and the 1970s. All three mod­els are driven by the dainty Cal­i­bre 1055, a hand-wound move­ment that of­fers al­most 40 hours of re­serve power. The Heures Créa­tives Heure Dis­crète watch re­calls the geo­met­ric sym­me­try of the art deco pe­riod, with its exquisitely lu­mi­nous fan-shaped case carved in white gold and fash­ioned like lace, set with row upon row of di­a­monds. The fan opens to re­veal the hours and min­utes on a mother-of-pearl dial be­neath. Vacheron Con­stantin cre­ated the first version of this de­sign in 1919 as a pen­dant.
