With SIHH 2019 quick drawing nearer, brands are pre-delivering chosen models to spark our interest. Vacheron Constantin has released the principal pictures of two special pieces, Les Cabinotiers Grande Complication Phoenix and Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon Sky outline, which we will present in a different article. Be that as it may, for the time being, how about we take a gander at the principal model, a complex watch with no less than 15 complications.
The Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Grande Complication Phoenix is an exceptional creation combining a super complicated development and tribal artworks – “Métiers d’Art” are profoundly imbued in Vacheron Constantin’s custom. The assortment name Les Cabinotiers is a reference to the watchmakers who used to deal with the highest levels of the brand’s notable Geneva building.
The Grande Complication Phoenix packs 15 complications into its luxuriously brightened pink gold case: minute repeater, tourbillon, unending schedule (date, day of the week, month and jump year sign), power save sign, condition of time, dusk time, dawn time, sky diagram, age and periods of the moon, sidereal hours and minutes, seasons, Zodiac sign, and a striking component force sign. The various signs are shown on one or the other side of the case, on anthracite dials delightfully blending the pink gold case. The development is made of an amazing 839 sections. It depends on the hand-wound type 2755, working at 2.5Hz and blessed with a 58-hour power hold. Despite the fact that not obvious, the development is done in the standard very good quality style.
This remarkable development must be encased in an extraordinary habillage. Estimating an imposing 47mm in width, the 18k pink gold case features master, careful craftsmanship. It is completely hand-engraved with a phoenix subject. It combines jumped decoration – or bas-alleviation – for the case flanks and scarcely discernible difference etching for the bezel and caseback. The brand expresses that 300 hours of fastidious work were expected to completely etch the case.
Completed with a gator lash with a collapsing clasp, the Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Grande Complication Phoenix is an exceptional piece. Retail cost is upon demand at Vacheron Constantin. For more data, kindly visit www.vacheron-constantin.com .
