Vacheron Constantin launches four stunning timepieces
2010: Vacheron Constantin presents an extraordinary trilogy dedicated to horological virtuosity and the tradition of jewellery making. First, the brand pays tribute to 30 years of the Kallista with the Kallania. It establishes a new world record with 186 emerald-cut diamonds weighing approximately 170 carats which illuminate this miracle of patience and perfection.
Then, a first in horology, Vacheron Constantin uses the flame diamond-cut in two captivating watches: Kalla Flame and Kalla Haute Couture à Secret. Lady Kalla Flame is brought to life by 200 diamonds. The case is dressed in white gold, embracing a diamond-set dial. Kalla Haute Couture à Secret includes 28 flame cut diamonds. A diamond-paved dial lies concealed. Unpretentious in design, and secretive, the timepiece’s slender silhouette extends in two fine lines of 120 diamonds and, like a precious ribbon, encircles the wrist in dazzling undulation.
Finally, with the Malte Tourbillon Regulator, high-tech horology marries the most sophisticated and delicate of all settings: the invisible setting. With the invisible settings all entirely hand-crafted, it is dressed in 565 baguette diamonds. Only a few artists today have mastered the technique for producing invisible diamond settings. The gold is completely hidden behind the precious stones: supported by a track, they form a field of light and emit maximum luminosity.
