Vacheron Constantin launches Kalla Haute Couture a Pampilles
October 31, 2011: The new Kalla Haute Couture a Pampilles by Vacheron Constantin pays dazzling homage to the Metiers d'Art of the Manufacture.
The Kalla Haute Couture à Pampilles, adorned with approximately 28.70 carats of gems, revives the tradition of 'secret' watches that enabled 19th century watches to check the time in an exquisitely discreet manner. Far more than just a watch, this splendid bracelet unfolds its ethereally dainty white gold silhouette entirely set with diamonds.
In order to accentuate this sensation of vibrant life, the Vacheron Constantin designers and jewellers have created an escort for the flame-cut diamonds composed of princess- and brilliant-cut stones, thereby playing with varying shapes and carats to impart a magnificent overall visual rhythm. The entirely hand-crafted mesh construction keeps material to an absolute minimum to let the diamonds do the talking.
The mechanical heart of the watch houses the hand-wound Calibre 1005 with the crown on the back of the movement, designed after the historical Vacheron Constantin baguette movement.
