For the first time in Dubai, replica Vacheron Constantin hosted a global launch of its latest high complications that are a part of their renowned “Atelier Cabinotiers,” a collection of bespoke pieces from the brand. The exclusive launch was attended by prominent VIP guests, socialites and bloggers from the region who got the chance to view the new pieces and meet with the Atelier Cabinotiers of the Maison, Mr. Dominique Bernaz.
A highpoint of the event was the unveiling of the Maître Cabinotier Retrograde Armillary Tourbillon. A spiritual successor of the cheap replica Vacheron Constantin Reference 57260, a intricately crafted timepiece with 57 complications, this new piece was crafted by the same three master watchmakers and incorporates two of that watch’s complicated features: the armillary tourbillon and the double retrograde indication. It’s styling also allows for the wearer to view the structure of the calibre 1990 movement. the high-precision movement is housed in a 45.7 mm case in white gold.
Also on display was the Malte Tourbillon High Jewellery, which marries the two arts of watchmaking and gem-setting. The piece features 398 baguette diamonds and luxury fake Vacheron Constantin 36 yellow diamonds (totalling approximately 19.67 carats), creating a beautiful illumination of time and of the tourbillon. The Malte Tourbillon also features a mechanical hand-wound calibre, comprising 169 parts and endowed with an almost two-day power reserve. The new tonneau-shaped movement was entirely developed and crafted within the Manufacture.
Lastly, Vacheron Constantin unveiled the Maître Cabinotier 15-Complications Lions, a sophisticated Grande Complication wristwatch, equipped with an exceptional set of functions and featuring an entirely hand-engraved case with 4 lions on a savannah background. In a supreme feat of miniaturisation, 15 of the most demanding complications in Haute Horlogerie are brought together in a 47 mm-diameter, UK replica Vacheron Constantin 19.1 mm-thick 18K 5N pink gold case.
