Fresh in and already uploaded to our Database: the brand new Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Elégance Sartoriale collection.
The Métiers d’Art Elégance Sartoriale, a collection of five, is introduced as a watchmaking tribute to sartorialism – the world of fine tailoring. A ‘subtle combination of artistic crafts’ in the words of Vacheron Constantin, I’d prefer ‘an acquired taste’. But then again, the craftsmanship involved in the dials is hard to argue with; guilloche, grand feu enamel, mother of pearl; it’s all there. Time is indicated through on off-center dial, a feat Vacheron Constantin achieved by placing a 20mm movement in a 40mm case.
