Vacheron Constantin reveals new models dedicated to Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus.

It’s time to pay tribute to the great explorers Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus. Vacheron Constantin presents two new models dedicated to Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus after the two first models in the collection dedicated to the Chinese admiral Zheng Hé and Magellan. Both of the new Vacheron Constantin watches are distinguished by their extraordinary grand feu polychrome enameled gold dials whose exceptionally challenging execution by an enamel master reveals the historical routes charted by Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus. It was no small task to capture the voyage of the world’s greatest explorers onto a watch dial but they accomplished the task and it’s exemplary.
