You don’t need to be a watch enthusiast or an expert in time pieces to know that the new Vacheron Constantin “Metiers d`Art La Symbolique des Laques” Series of Watches are absolutely stunning works of art. Third in a series of Vacheron Constantin watches, following Metiers d’Art 2010 edition and Metiers d’Art Perspectives d’Art watch of 2011. The new collection consists of three watches, all created in 18-carat gold, focusing on the themes of spring, autumn, and winter. Each watch is a separate work of art, but for any serious collector, having all three is a must, much less having the entire collection.
The first watch celebrating the spring season is the Hanami watch, meaning spring. This incredibly lovely piece features cherry trees, willow leaves, pink tones, and the hopeful beauty of blooming flowers. The Tsukimi watch, or fall watch, features a full, glowing, moon and drifting clouds with a touch of 3D effect to them. The Tsukimi watch is the perfect transition between the Hanami watch and the Yukimi, or winter, watch. The Yukimi reflects the colder elements of winter with various hues of snowflakes and a hint of fog/clouds in the background. It’s hard not to fall in love at first sight when viewing the new Vacheron Constantin “Metiers d`Art La Symbolique des Laques Series of Watches.
The new Vacheron Constantin Metiers d`Art La Symbolique des Laques watch works with 1003 caliber movement and measure just a minuscule 1.64mm thick, making it the thinnest hand-wound movement in the world. Sapphire crystals on each side of the watches make it possible to get exceptional views of the amazing finishes, including chamfering, straight graining, and engraving, all hand manipulated. Definitely breathing a bit of Japanese culture into these pieces, the sober tone of the round case framing this flawless moment and the two “maki-e” dials, reflect the ambiance of the collection. These watches exude serenity and peaceful moments.
