Vacheron Constantin boasts of more than 200 years of watch making expertise. In 1770, Vacheron’s company created the world’s first horological complication, and nine years later he designed the first engine-turned dials. Recently, the brand added a new timepiece to its Heures Creatives collection, the highly sophisticated and dramatically monochromatic new Heures Creatives Heure Romantique ladies’ watch. If there’s any brand that can dog into its century-old archives and bring something not just relevant to the times but insanely gorgeous it is Vacheron Constantin. The new Heures Creatives Heure Romantique ladies’ watch is a diamond-set 18-karat gold ultra-feminine timepiece that brings the best of the horological world and high jewelry. The art nouveau era makes a clear appearance in the form of the dainty flower-shaped watch which is enhanced by a contrasting and striking black mother-of-pearl dial. Round, brilliant-cut diamonds are prong set on the case and sides. To be prices there are a total of 104 diamonds set on two levels of the case which adds to the allure of this timeless timepiece. The diamond saga continues as the gold folding clasp and the crown are set with diamonds too comprising a total of 123 stones weighing 2.6 carats. The details, much like in high jewelry, have been paid great attention too right from finely engraved small gold beads to the meticulous setting of diamonds.
This beauty in black is powered by a thin manual winding Caliber 1055, with 115 individual components and 21 jewels. Don’t be quick to judge performance based on size as the petite watch will surprise you with 40 hours of power reserve. It is finished with a black satin strap perfect to maintain the all black demeanor. The watch retails for $54,500 and joins the trilogy of watches inspired by the Belle Epoque era in The Vacheron Constantin’s Heures Creatives collection that was commenced in 2015.
