Vacheron Con­stantin Métiers d’Art Les Aérostiers Bag­nols 1785

DA MAN - Caliber - - ESSENTIALS -

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.
