Metiers D’Art La Le­gende Du Zo­di­aque Chi­nois Year Of the Mon­key

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - WATCH OUT 好时光 -

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.
