The Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Villes Lumières is a series of limited edition watches introduced in late 2016. The dial of each model is made of grand feu enamel. On this base, Japanese artist Yoko Imai has applied, between the raised gold ridges, tens of thousands of spangles that shine in the light. The particles of precious powder, all of varying shades and degree of luminosity, interact both amongst themselves and with the dark shades of the Grand Feu enamelled background. The radiance of the composition is more intense in the dial centre and gradually softens towards the outer edges of the dial, forming an nightly aerial view of the city.
Reference 86222/000G-B107 was added to the collection in 2017. It is dedicated to the city of Beijing.
