The Métiers d’Art Savoirs Enluminés collection boasts "illuminated" dials featuring beastly motifs that take their design cues from the Aberdeen Beastiary – a 12th century text that contains knowledge and beliefs from the era.
The Vacheron Constantin Vultures watch features two birds creating a circle, said to symbolise “infinity and longevity”, while the Vacheron Constantin Altion watch depicts a green seabird, billed by its makers as a metaphor for serenity.
The beasts have all been painted in Grand Feu enamel and are decorated with different textures of gold.
Notable technical features include an exclusive self-winding Calibre 1120 AT mechanism, built on an ultra-thin base movement of just 5.45mm.
Each watch in the Métiers d’Art Savoirs Enluminés collection is strictly limited to just 20 pieces.
Founded by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755, Vacheron Constantin has grown to become one of the world’s most famous luxury watch makers.
