Vacheron Constantin Unveils Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon Watches: A Tribute to Art Deco and Arabesque Art
PRWire: Geneva, Switzerland – Vacheron Constantin, a name synonymous with horological excellence, today announced the launch of two exceptional timepieces: the Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon – Tribute to arabesque and the Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon – Tribute to Art Deco style. These masterpieces are a testament to the Maison’s deep-rooted history and cultural ties, showcasing its commitment to artistic craftsmanship and technical prowess.
“Vacheron Constantin’s journey through time and across continents has always been about celebrating cultural richness and craftsmanship,” said a spokesperson for the Maison. “Our newest creations in the Les Cabinotiers – Récits de Voyages range are not just timepieces; they are narratives of our heritage and artistic explorations.”
The Tribute to arabesque edition draws inspiration from the architectural wonders of the Muslim world, specifically the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. Its intricate engraving, taking three painstaking months to complete, captures the essence of arabesque art’s organic volutes. “This watch is more than an object of precision; it is a canvas where every incision tells a story of architectural marvels,” commented the master engraver.
The Tribute to Art Deco style honors the iconic Chrysler Building in New York. The dial’s wood marquetry, a first for Vacheron Constantin, reflects the grandeur of Art Deco designs. “The creation process involved a meticulous selection of woods and detailed craftsmanship, evoking the spirit of the Roaring Twenties,” noted the marquetry artisan.
Both editions are powered by the in-house Calibre 2755 TMR, featuring a minute repeater and tourbillon regulator – a hallmark of Vacheron Constantin’s technical mastery. “The combination of these complications with unparalleled artistic craftsmanship reflects our Maison’s 270-year legacy of watchmaking excellence,” added the spokesperson.
With their roots in the Maison’s global journey, these timepieces also celebrate Vacheron Constantin’s enduring relationships with cultures and regions around the world, notably the Middle East and New York. From its early interactions with the Ottoman Empire to its establishment in the bustling city of New York, Vacheron Constantin has always embraced the diversity and richness of global cultures.
As heirs to this legacy, the Les Cabinotiers Minute Repeater Tourbillon watches are not just timekeepers but storytellers, echoing the Maison’s philosophy of openness and cultural appreciation. These exclusive, single-piece editions are a tribute to the art of travel and the universal language of craftsmanship and beauty.
