EN­TER THE PHOENIX

Prestige (Thailand) - - SHOWCASE -

Through its two faces, the one-of-a-kind Vacheron Con­stantin Les Cabinotiers Grand Com­pli­ca­tion Phoenix shows off 15 horo­log­i­cal com­pli­ca­tions, in­clud­ing a minute re­peater, a tour­bil­lon and a per­pet­ual cal­en­dar on one face, and as­tro­nom­i­cal in­di­ca­tions such as a sky chart, sea­sons, zo­diac signs and equa­tion of time on the other. A hand-en­graved pink-gold case show­cases a richly de­tailed phoenix in dra­matic three­d­i­men­sional re­lief. In­side is one of the brand’s most com­plex move­ments: the man­u­al­wind­ing cal­i­bre 2755, built from 839 com­po­nents. De­spite its com­plex­ity and sheer num­ber of com­pli­ca­tions to power, it still man­ages a longish 580-hour power re­serve.
