Dove watch – one-of-a-kind creation for Only Watch 2011

This model embodies an exceptional association of the famous Métiers d’Art cultivated within the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin: engraver, enameller, gemsetter and guillocher are working together to create this unique magnificent watch, especially developed for Only Watch.

Inspired by the technique of repetitive tiling designs known as tessellation, this “Métiers d’Art – Perspectives d’Art” watch invites observers to explore a reality that plays with human perception.

This watch combines several of the Manufacture’s artistic crafts that vividly express the theme of perspective in order to accentuate the sense of depth, each according to its own technique.

The watch gold, enamelled and diamond-set dial adopts concepts such as geometry, symbolism and motion, subtly nesting and layering them in order to generate several levels of meaning and interpretation.

This timepiece is inspired by a drawing by Maurits Cornelis Escher – a Dutch engraver and graphic artist (1898-1972) whose work was based on a subtle play on architecture, perspective and space. This one-of-a-kind creation depicts a flight of red and white doves – the Only Watch colours - born from the Métiers d’Art exercised within the Manufacture.

These birds - symbols of hope and love - are exquisitely interlocking like jigsaw puzzle parts or tessellations, these skills combine in creating a truly stunning decorative motif.

Within the case beats high-precision mechanical self-winding Vacheron Constantin Calibre 2460, bearing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.

In addition to the extreme reliability of this entirely in-house developed and produced mechanism, it is adorned with exquisite hand finishes crafted in accordance with Geneva’s noblest Fine Watchmaking traditions.
