One of the world’s oldest watch manufacturer Vacheron Constantin is celebrating the dainty form of dancing, as it unveils three new one-of-a-kind additions to its Métiersd’Art Hommage à l’Art de la Danse collection, based on the highlights of a ballerina’s daily life.
Created by master enamellers and watchmakers in the workshops of Vacheron Constantin. The watches are each inspired by a different masterpiece by French artist Edgar Degas, who depicted ballerinas using different techniques, including sketching, painting, and photography. These creations from the workshops of the Manufacture revisit the ancestral art of Grand Feugrisaille enamelling to highlight the art of classical ballet by reinterpreting the works of Edgar Degas. Each of these exquisite timepieces comes in an 18-carat white gold case, 40 mm in diameter, featuring sapphire crystals, a sapphire display back, and is water resistant to 30 meters.
Created with ancestral technique reclaimed by Vacheron Constantin succeeds – without the help of vivid colours nor additional material – in creating an authentic depth effect that captures the ballerinas’ experience right the way through to the tiniest fold in their costume. The music to which they move is the regular beat of the self-winding Calibre 2460, entirely developed and crafted in the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin. Each watch features exclusive Grand Feu grisaille enameling and bears the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.
The new additions to the Métiers d’Art Hommage à l’Art de la Danse collection these watches are only available at Vacheron Constantin boutiques, with price on request.
