With the new Les Cabinotiers – Récits de Voyages collection, Vacheron Constantin presents a lineup of one-off timepieces that explore the various wonders of the world.

The Grisaille High Jewellery Dragon, as its name indicates, depicts the mystical Chinese dragon on its deep and tantalizing enamel dial. Attired in a 40mm white gold watch case set with baguette-cut diamonds, the watch omits all indices, leaving the Maison’s logo, and minimalistic handset to not detract away from its stunning dragon design. Brought to life with the grisaille technique, which also marks the Maison’s master enameller’s first time using green enamel to illustrate the imperial dragon on a watch dial.

Crafted in homage to Vacheron Constantin’s first foray into the Americas, the Armillary Tourbillon is touted as a tribute to the Art Deco style. Arriving in a 45mm case width, the 18k yellow gold case frames a highly-architectural openworked guiloché dial. The watch face features a stunning bi-retrograde display that’s anchored with a bi-axial armillary tourbillon, complete with a spherical balance-spring

As for the Les Cabinotiers Malte Tourbillon, the design nods to 19th-century Haussmannian architecture that has come to define modern-day Paris. The watch face features an intricate openworked dial, coupled with meticulous engraving that adorns its tonneau-shaped pink gold watch case.

Last but not least, the Les Cabinotiers Memorable Places lineup comprises four references, each outfitted with hand-engraved dials rendered in textured gold, white gold, and pink gold. From Geneva’s La Tour de l’Île, the entrance gates to Angkor Thom in Cambodia, to the Confucius temple, Imperial College Museum, and the historical Summer Palace in Beijing, the dials present some of the world’s renowned architectural sites in a period style — all brought to life via a new technical that combines engraving
with micro-sculpturing.
