On its unique way, Vacheron Constantin honors the art of tailoring, or an adoration for hand-crafted and fine clothing dedicated to men. Renowned manufacturer has created a new sartorially influenced collection of 5 watches, with each timepiece bearing the Hallmark of Geneva. The collection gives VC’s own take on the classic masculine wardrobe, using techniques such as guilloché and grand feu enameling to reproduce the art of fine tailoring with dials depicting some of the most known patterns used in tailoring.

Each watch is coated with translucent Grand Feu enamel in various colors. The Prince of Wales check pattern, the Herringbone pattern, the Windowpane pattern, the Pinstripes pattern and the Tartan pattern have all been precisely re-created – following six hours of labor – by VC’s expert guillocheurs and enamelists. The hours and minutes are displayed on a sub dial rimmed with mother-of-pearl, a nod to shirt buttons. At its center, there’s a pattern created using a tapestry machine like a silk pocket square against a suit.

All five models are powered by caliber 1400, a mechanical manual-winding movement that beats at 28,000 VpH (4Hz) for a minimum of 40 hours developed and produced by the Manufacture. It is partially visible on the flip side, through a circular aperture shaped after the hour and minutes subdial.
The new collection comes on an alligator strap with a pin buckle in the shape of a Maltese cross, and a pair of cufflinks echoing the tapestry motif on the subdial. The five models will be reserved for Vacheron Constantin’s boutique network, and will be priced at $53,600.
