Les Cabinotiers Grand Complication Phoenix
Cabinotiers is the name given to master watchmakers, who toil away in the lofts of Switzerland, often making all of a timepiece’s components by hand. Vacheron Constantin has recognised these craftsmen with this grand complication piece, which has no fewer than 15 complications, including a minute repeater and perpetual calendar, while the rear dial displays an astonishing range of astronomical measurements. There’s even an indicator to show the torque of the repeater mechanism. The gold case is exquisitely hand- engraved with an image of a phoenix.
