Vacheron Constantin launches Les Cabinotiers Grande Complication Bacchus
This one-off piece is dedicated to the Roman god of wine and powered by the remarkable Calibre 2755 GC16
Vacheron Constantin has announced the release of a stunning new one-off model dubbed the Les Cabinotiers Grande Complication Bacchus.
This double-sided wristwatch comprises 16 complications powered by Calibre 2755 GC16 with minute repeater and tourbillon, housed in an 18K 5N gold case whose middle is sculpted in bas-relief.
The watch is dedicated to Bacchus, the Roman god of vines and wine, and is adorned with ruby grapes set in gold foliage hand-carved. In addition to these mythological references, the tourbillon and minute repeater movement displays virtually every astronomical and calendar-type complication a timepiece can muster.
The 18K 5N pink gold case of the timepiece features a decoration composed of vine leaves interspersed with bunches of ruby grapes. The engraver’s work is complemented by that of the gem-setter on the outside of the case in "giving life to figurative motifs", as the watchmaker puts it.
