Luxury watch collectors are in for another treat as Vacheron Constantin unveiled two new remarkable items. Both are bespoke timepieces that perfectly showcase the amazing skills of expert watchmakers. The white gold model is the Minute Repeater Tourbillon Sky Chart, which we will explore in another article. For now, let’s shift our focus on what we believe is one of the most beautiful designs we’ve ever seen. The Vacheron Constantin Grand Complication Phoenix lives up to its name as it symbolically rises up from the ashes in all its glory.
Its biggest showstopper is the 47mm 18k rose gold case that flaunts an elaborate engraving, which reportedly took 300 hours to complete. Additionally, as the extravagant wristwatch’s name suggests, the exterior bears a phoenix awash in flames. Almost every surface save for the case back is covered in lavish detail.
The dials are mostly in black with the indices and hands in rose gold. Meanwhile, Vacheron Constantin confirms that the Grand Complication Phoenix features 15 complications. These include a tourbillon, perpetual calendar, moon phase, minute repeater, seasons, zodiac signs, and more. The 2755 BOSS manual movement keeps everything in motion. We have yet to find out how much each of the two models cost, but it should be around six figures or more.Vacheron Constantin
