Metiers D’Art La Legende Du Zodiaque Chinois Year Of the Monkey
This year, Vacheron Constantin enriches its Metiers d’Art La Legende Du Zodiaque Chinois series with the sign of the monkey. The two new creations, realised in 12 models each, combine the technical excellence of Caliber 2460 G4 with the beauty of artistic crafts. The foliage motif, appearing on the dial and based on classic Chinese iconography, is etched directly in the metal, yet appears to float over the dial. Then comes the stage of Grand Feu enamelling, where by applying the enamel in successive layers, the enamel specialist enhances the intensity of the blue or bronze-toned dial. The monkey, made of platinum or gold, is hand-engraved and delicately applied to the dial centre.
