Power of the fal­con

VACHERON CON­STANTIN UN­VEILS THE METIERS D’ART GYR, A LIMITED EDI­TION FOR THE GULF

Virtuozity - - Watch News -

VACHERON CON­STANTIN RE­CENTLY USED Jew­ellery Ara­bia 2016 in Bahrain to launch the Métiers d’art Gyr, a strik­ing time­piece that de­picts one of the most iconic sym­bols of Arab cul­ture, the Fal­con.

The watch is an ad­di­tion to the Métiers d’art col­lec­tion and an homage to Mid­dle East­ern cul­tural her­itage. Show­cas­ing a hand­crafted fal­con, the limited edi­tion pays trib­ute to the her­itage of the Gulf area while cel­e­brat­ing a bright fu­ture and will be solely avail­able in Vacheron Con­stantin bou­tiques in the GCC.

Bear­ing the Hall­mark of Geneva, the watch, re­alised in 10 mod­els only, com­bines the Cal­i­bre 2460 G4 with the beauty of artis­tic crafts. The 2460 G4 makes it pos­si­ble to cre­ate a dis­tinc­tive and ideal stage-set­ting for the dec­o­ra­tive arts, by giv­ing the cen­tral dial mo­tif a star­ring role.

The hands-free time dis­play is achieved through four aper­tures show­ing the hours, min­utes, days and dates. These in­di­ca­tions—the first two of the drag­ging va­ri­ety and the last two of the jump­ing type—proudly em­body the long­stand­ing savoir-faire of the Mai­son in de­sign­ing and de­vel­op­ing orig­i­nal dis­plays. Clearly vis­i­ble through the sap­phire crys­tal back of the plat­inum case, the 22-carat gold os­cil­lat­ing weight is adorned with a re­cur­rent Is­lamic pat­tern tapis­serie in­spired by the ar­chi­tec­ture of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi.
