Vacheron Constantin 33580/000R-9906 description
The Vacheron Constantin Métiers d'Art Fabuleux Ornements series was launched at SIHH 2014 and consists of four watches celebrating the ornamental beauties of the world drawn from the decorative arts of several different cultures.
The ethereal calibre of the present watch is magnificently reflected by the chamfered pink gold moucharaby (wooden lattice) motif formed by the dial and of which every edge is delicately bevelled by hand. Daintily perched on a natural white mother-of-pearl base, the gold gridwork studded with half-pearl beads echoes the majesty of the scrolling patterns in Middle Eastern architecture. The meticulously executed decoration on the rings, known as milgrain and featuring strings of tiny bead shapes coined along the edges, add to the magic of the workmanship. The enchanted world of the Arabian nights continues in the arabesques of the calibre, also embellished with engravings.
