Vacheron Constantin has introduced a limited edition of pair watches on the NET-A-PORTER flagship store on Tmall Luxury Pavilion in China. The Traditionnelle “Catcher of Time” timepieces epitomize La Belle Horlogerie by combining technical achievements and the Maison’s craftsmanship unique know-how. They are are presented in limited edition of 22 pieces each with individual numbers.
Spreading the entire part of the dial, a hand-guilloché decor picking up the elegant “Clous de Paris” motif, endows the two limited-edition watches a romantic name “Catcher of Time”. The infinity of the “Clous de Paris” motif forms a space of “web” as a catcher of time. Hand-guilloché is a decorative technique in which a very precise, intricate and repetitive pattern, manually-operated by using a “guilloche” machine, to engrave into an underlying material via engine turning. As a combination of highly technical and incredibly craftsmanship challenges, hand-guilloché was used in the Maison’s dial decoration of pocket watches as early as 1780, and was widely adopted by the watchmaking industry in the 19th century.
