Depicting the stunning aerial views of world’s most beautiful cities on their dial, wrist watches from Vacheron Constantin’s Métiers d’Art Villes Lumières collection offer a sparkling encounter between two exceptional arts: Grand Feu champlevé enamelling, a skill passed on for almost three centuries by the Vacheron Constantin artisans; and hand-applied precious powder, a technique mastered by Japanese guest artist Yoko Imai.
Unveiled at SIHH 2017 with Geneva, Paris New York editions, the Métiers d’Art Villes Lumières collection now welcomes a new model depicting the aerial view of Beijing.
