The Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Elégance Sartoriale is a new, bespoke timepiece, designed to pay tribute to the beautiful art of tailoring. Walking on a fine line between technical expertise and style, this watch looks like a true fashion statement, inspired by the finest elements of a masculine wardrobe.
Featuring fabrics that sport rich, elegant shades, this elegant watch comes with a dial that resembles these fabrics, and since it’s coated with a translucent Grand Feu enamel, the dial seems to hint towards a stylish and well-groomed male.
A Caliber 1400 mechanical manual-winding movement is what keeps things ticking, and comprises 98 components and 20 jewels, with a 40-hour power reserve.
The Métiers d’Art Elégance Sartoriale line from Vacheron Constantin shows off five different units, each of them boasting its own unique pattern.
The Prince of Wales check, presented on a raspberry red enamel, the herringbone motif on a lavender-toned enamel, the windowpane pattern on warm grey, the pin stripes on a touch of soft linen and the tartan motif with the criss-crosses on a sea of cerulean blue, are the five super chic patterns on these watches.
It may seem like an odd choice, mixing the craftsmanship of a tailor with a watchmaker’s attention to detail, but I’m just surprised no one had though of it sooner. Vacheron Constantin has done a brilliant job once again, and I’m sure we’d all love to wear any of these timepieces around our wrists.
