Vulcain Pegasus for Only Watch 2015

With this unique wristwatch, Manufacture des Montres Vulcain joins ONLY WATCH 2015 charity auction to support the MONACO ASSOCIATION AGAINST MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY, assisting their journey to bettering the lives of young AMM patients and their families.

This unique Pegasus timepiece developed for only watch 2015 features a universal symbol of wisdom and knowledge to celebrate Vulcain’s time-honored watchmaking expertise.
Pegasus is one of the best-known mythological creatures in Greek mythology. He is a winged divine stallion usually depicted as pure white in color. Greco-Roman poets wrote about his ascent to heaven after his birth and his obedience to Zeus, king of the gods. He was captured by the Greek hero Bellerophon near the Perene fountain with the help of Athena and Poseidon. Pegasus allowed the hero to ride him to defeat a monster, the Chimera, before accomplishing many other exploits. Because of his faithful service to Zeus, he was rewarded by being transformed into the constellation Pegasus and placed up in the sky. The symbolism of Pegasus has varied through the ages. An emblem of wisdom and especially of fame from the Middle Ages until the Renaissance, he became a symbol of poetry and the creator of sources from which the poets draw inspiration, particularly in the 19th century. Pegasus is the subject of a very rich iconography, especially expressed in ancient Greek pottery and paintings, as well as Renaissance sculptures.
Symbol of Wisdom and inspiring springs, this representation of the Pegasus by the Manufacture Vulcain celebrates the unique and secular know-how of art of the Enamel. Its unique manufacture movement and the refined finishing make this timepiece a real collector’s item.
