The Métiers d’art Les Aérostiers col­lec­tion pays tribute to the golden era of ex­per­i­men­tal fly­ing in the 18th cen­tury. On the di­als of th­ese watches, the mai­son’s master en­gravers re­pro­duce minia­ture de­pic­tions of five his­tor­i­cal hot-air bal­loon flights un­der­taken in France be­tween 1783 and 1785. Th­ese vin­tage bal­loons are hand-en­graved and mi­cro-sculpted in gold, and set against a translu­cent pliquea-jour enamel back­ground.
