  • Summary

If you are looking for something rare and unique, maybe a bit "costy", the "Dragons" collection by Vacheron Constantin is for you. The main problem is probably to get it...

How was the dragon motif made?

Vacheron Constantin has created with the collection Métiers d’Art “Les Dragons”, shaped around motifs created by alternately using two different machines: the first one to engine-turn straight lines and the other one to produce unique curves and circles.

The combination of these two techniques has permitted to create non-geometrical patterns giving to this collection a very beautiful "history".
