Acclaimed watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has revealed three additions to its exclusive Métiers d’Art Hommage à l’Art de la Danse collection, a series which evokes the events in the daily life of a ballerina: studying, training, and performing.
The collection revisits the ancient art of Grand Feu grisaille enameling in order to highlight the art of classical ballet, while reinterpreting the work of famous painter Edgar Degas.
Each of these exquisite timepieces comes in an 18-carat white gold case, 40 mm in diameter, featuring sapphire crystals, a sapphire display back, and is water resistant to 30 meters. The movement is a Swiss automatic Vacheron in-house caliber 2460 SC with 27 jewels, beating at 28,800 vph, with a power reserve of up to 40 hours – and boasts the prestigious Geneva Hallmark. The 18-carat gold dial features translucent enamel and Grand Feu grisaille technique, with each of the three models reinterpreting the work of Edgar Degas.
The new additions to the Métiers d’Art Hommage à l’Art de la Danse collection come on a black Mississippiensis alligator strap, hand-stitched, saddle-finish, featuring large square scales, as well as an 18-carat gold white gold pin buckle. These watches are only available at Vacheron Constantin boutiques.
