MORE THAN THE EYE CAN SEE
To create a watch with open working is purely an aesthetic consideration; it demands that each stage of the watch’s construction become more complicated. To even begin to strike
that subtle balance between beauty and functionality requires nimble fingers, infinite patience, and superlative design conception. The horologists at Vacheron Constantin’s Swiss
manufacture took their time in creating this unexpected encounter between tradition and modernity. But of course, 260 years of watchmaking history might have had something to do with enriching beauty with expertise. For instance, Vacheron’s skilled artistans are second to none in the delicate technique of hand engraving, the only way to bring the ethereal
lightness to fashion increasingly fine mechanical parts. The Patrimony Traditionelle collection has several outstanding tourbillons, but adapting Gothic inspiration with the precision demands of a rotating movement to create a three dimensional effect will leave the
wearer breathless and hypnotised with every peek at their wrist. Price on request.
