Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Aérostiers Bagnols 1785
This year, the latest Métiers d’Art watches from the oldest watch manufacture, Vacheron Constantin, are built around a very unusual motif,. Based on the early history of hot air ballooning, which was pioneered in France in the second half of the 18th century, the Métiers d’Art Les Aérostiers by Vacheron Constantin pays tribute to this chapter in history. While the time is displayed to the beat of the Manufacture Calibre 2460 G4/1 movement, splendid hand-engraved and micro-sculpted gold hot-air balloons hover against a translucent plique-à-jour enamel background. In short, Vacheron Constantin once again successfully explores new creative horizons, this time in telling the marvelous story of the first skyborne adventurers.
