Métiers d’Art Florilège Ladies’ Watches by Vacheron Constantin

For 2013, Vacheron Constantin decided to dedicate more time and effort to developing outstanding timepieces for ladies. The first collection that they created in this spirit was recently unveiled at SIHH under the name Métiers d’Art Florilège. The inspiration for this collection was Robert John Thornton’s famous work known as “The Temple of Flora”, containing superb artistic representations of flowers.

The collection includes three individual models, each one featuring a superb dial created by miniature artist Anita Porchet, who is also a specialist in Geneva-style fired enamels. The differently colored dials were matched with similarly colored leather straps, and as a final touch of elegance, the bezels were decorated with beautiful diamonds.

The names of the watches are Queen, China Limodoron, and White Lily, and they are all powered by the same amazingly accurate movement, mechanical manual winding calibre 4400. They feature a 65-hour power reserve and the collection is limited to only 20 units. Five of them will boast baguette-cut diamonds, and they will only be available for purchase at Vacheron’s boutiques.
