The embodiment of passion
Vacheron Constantin is merging once again the art of exceptional watchmaking with creating luxurious pieces of jewellery and is now presenting the new Kalla Haute Couture à Pampilles. Its supple, airy aesthetic provides a fresh illustration of the constantly renewed creativity of the in-house designers.
The Kalla Haute Couture à Pampilles is adorned with approximately 28.70 carats of gems, reviving the tradition of “secret” watches that enabled 19th century watches to check the time in an exquisitely discreet manner. The precious stones conceal the hours and minutes beneath a paved cover enhanced by the graceful motion of four mobile strands. Far more than just a watch, this splendid bracelet unfolds its ethereally dainty white gold silhouette entirely set with diamonds.
This jewellery inspired means of securing the watch to the wrist sets the perfect aesthetic finishing touch to a model beating to the rhythm of a prestigious mechanical heart: the famous hand-wound Calibre 1005 with the crown on the back of the movement, designed after the historical Vacheron Constantin baguette movement.
