In 1912, in this aggressive era, Vacheron Constantin completely broke the circular design of pocket watches with absolute innovation and became one of the first watch manufacturers to adopt barrel-shaped cases. Since then, the barrel design has become a classic style of Vacheron Constantin, which has attracted countless gentlemen and ladies. Over the past century, the barrel design has gradually combined with the most noble and sophisticated watchmaking craftsmanship, creating the legend of Vacheron Constantin’s Malta series.
For a long time, the Vacheron Constantin Malta collection is unique in the watchmaking industry with its barrel-type watches. Now a new addition to the collection: Haute Joaillerie High Jewellery Ladies Watch. The exquisite and slim shape resembles a feminine figure, and the pure and elegant lines exude a classic charm and modern temperament, appearing more and more charming and touching in the bright light of diamonds.
This small Malte haute jewellery collection is a perfect tribute to Vacheron Constantin’s watchmaking excellence. The translucent case consists of 260 baguette-cut diamonds with a total weight of approximately 10.40 carats. It is carefully hand-decorated with a concealed setting technique that complements the scale on the dial and reflects the glorious time. The cover is also engraved with the prestigious Geneva seal.
There are only a few jewellery masters who are proficient in stealth setting in the field of jewelry. This process requires that the gold base is completely hidden under the diamond, and all diamonds are supported by tracks to form a shiny background, but no setting marks can be seen, so that the diamond blooms extremely brightly. Vacheron Constantin continues to meet the challenges. In addition to the curved outline of the case, the design of this watch also highlights the sophisticated and sophisticated watchmaking technology with simple frames, sharp edges and tight lines. In order to create this masterpiece, every skilled craftsman of Vacheron Constantin must work hard. Only designers, jewellers, watchmakers, and jewellery masters can bring together talents and perfect collaboration to truly achieve the common goal of pursuing excellence.
The jewelry cutter manually cuts each gemstone individually, allowing only one hundredth of a millimeter error, which can ensure that each gemstone is accurately and accurately embedded in a specific position in accordance with the sequence. Such a difficult diamond setting technique requires more than 100 hours for skilled craftsmen to complete.
The case size of this new Malte haute jewellery model is 29.30 x 38.59 mm, which is very suitable for women’s slender wrists. It is equipped with a 1400 manual winding mechanical movement independently developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, which complements the case. The transparent wine barrel-shaped bottom cover is clearly visible. The watch is paired with black silk straps and a semi-Maltese cross-shaped pinhole clasp set with 12 baguette-cut diamonds, expressing feminine charm.
