For over 265 years, Vacheron Constantin has been improving and reinventing the art of fine watchmaking. From 1755 to today, from Jean-Marc Vacheron to his illustrious descendants, the legend of the Maison has been built on various anecdotes and events to be discovered. Here is how, without a doubt, the perfect combination of craftsmanship tradition and the spirit of innovation of the Maison could be summarized in an authentic piece like this Plancher Pierre model. This watch is possibly the unique piece ever produced: with a self-winding movement despite the thinness of the case embellished with brilliant cut diamonds, it is extremely rare and precious because of the onyx dial with diamonds and tiger eye pattern. The geometric design of the dial leaves absolutely speechless for the quality and beauty of its manufacturing, showing how much attention is needed to create such a piece of art.
