Watch diameter 39 mm, exquisite craftsmanship, memorable
The movement’s splints and bridges are decorated with exquisite floral motifs in a precious platinum case
The buttercup leaf pattern has been the inspiration for various artistic expressions since ancient times
The same decorative elements of the same color show Vacheron Constantin’s pure and low-key design philosophy
The dial design of MecaniquesGravees, the master of art, makes the exquisite carving decoration of the movement’s main board and bridge plate clear. The elegant dark gray white gold hands perfectly echo the rock gray minute scale outer ring, which sets off the engraved white gold Maltese cross more brilliantly. The dial and case back are made of transparent sapphire crystal, making the delicate floral pattern carved on the movement clearly visible. Water resistance is 30 meters. Each 4400/1 movement requires 10 days of manual engraving.
Watch details real shot display:
Crown crown with a Maltese cross
With a half Maltese cross 950 platinum pin buckle
Hand-sculpted patterns highlight extraordinary mechanical functions and unique aesthetic charm
The scroll and vine-like engraving on the 4400/1 movement perfectly interpret the classic
The 4400 movement is one of Vacheron Constantin’s most iconic hand-wound movements. The master of art perfectly showcases this movement’s unparalleled exquisite design. The 4400 movement is entirely hand-engraved to provide power for the hours and minutes display. It is mounted on a 950 platinum round case with a diameter of 39 mm, and the curved bezel highlights the elegance and slimness of the watch. The 127 parts of this movement keep their original slenderness, challenging the master craftsmanship of carving. The power reserve of this movement is almost 3 days.
Summary: Vacheron Constantin’s Masterpieces of MecaniquesGravees watches, vividly and elegantly interpret the carving process, using a very modern style and architectural characteristics to pay tribute to the traditional carving process of high-end watch movements. The new master of art Mecaniques Gravees not only reviews the origins of traditional watchmaking decorative arts, but also reflects Vacheron Constantin’s persistent pursuit of the integration of watchmaking technology and art craft for 260 years.
