Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Univers Infinis

New Limited Edition Watch by Vacheron Constantin





One of the most impressive revelations at the past SIHH 2012 came from the watchmaker masters at Vacheron Constantin who presented a new limited edition to the Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Univers Infinis collection. 

The Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Univers Infinis really tries to make the universe infinite with a masterful craftsmanship of only 20 pieces with an incredible design inspired by the work of Dutch artist M.C. Escher, who was in turn inspired by Moorish art. The repeated graphic patterns gives this timepiece a sense or order, symmetry and geometry by using the “tessellation” technique. 

There are three different models, all limited edition of the Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Univers Infinis. The Dove watch features hand-guilloché work in its final phase of craftsmanship and one bird in this ethereal scene has been diamond-set with 38 brilliant-cut stones. The Fish watch features cloisonné enamelling, achieved by first marking each outline using fine gold wire before the enamelling process. The Shell watch features champlevé engraving – each field is hollowed out individually before the enamelling work is added.

Each piece of the Vacheron Constantin Métiers d’Art Les Univers Infinis houses the Vacheron Constantin manufacture Calibre 2460SC with 40 hours of power reserve inside a 40mm case made of 18K gold.

Vacheron Constantin redesigns the Malte Collection

Four new Malte models launch




Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the creation of the first Malte models, Vacheron Constantin has presented at the SIHH 2012 four new models to the collection with an updated shaped redesign. 

Vacheron Constantin launched the first tonneau or barrel-shaped cases in 1912. From the earliest days, the shape became associated with high style, and with the finest horological complications. In modern times, the Malte collection made its debut in 2000. At SIHH 2012, Vacheron Constantin introduced four newly redesigned Malte models, three of which are powered by movements that have earned the new Geneva Hallmark. 

The new four designs are the Malte Tourbillon, the largest piece in the collections; the Malte Small Seconds, presented in a slightly smaller case as the Tourbillon; the Malte 100th Anniversary Edition, a limited editions piece with “exploding” Roman numerals; and the Malte Small Model, a fine timepiece in 18K pink gold with a diamond-set bezel. 

The Malte 100th Anniversary Edition is scheduled to be launched in September; the Malte Tourbillon and the Malte Small Seconds are scheduled to be launched in November; and the launched date for the Malte Small Model is yet to be determined.
