Vacheron Constantin has been in the business of making superb timepieces in Geneva since 1755. The Swiss company has made prestigious watches and is the oldest watch manufacturer in the world. This time the watch maker introduces the flame-cut diamond to the world. This and many such High Jewellery timepieces are to be introduced to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the famous Kallista, a suburb in Victoria, Melbourne, Australia.
The shape that looks like a small flame is emphasized in the dial as well as the use of 200 flame cut diamonds all over the watch, 20 on the case, 60 in the dial, and 120 used on the bracelet. The settings and case of the watch are all made from 18k white gold. Interestingly, Vacheron Constantin chose to retain a mechanical movement for the small profile watch as you need to wind it at least every 30 hours. Phew! Who the hell can remember doing that every now and then? Anyway with a total of 36.5 karats of the attractive new flame cut diamonds the watch is a classic woman watch. No news about the price as of now.
