Vacheron Constantin Métiers D’ Art Master Series Copernicus Celestial Spheres Copernicus Celestial Ball 2460 Rt
• A new collection inspired by Nicolas Copernicus and the history of astronomical discovery
• Three innovative applications of decoration technology
• Vacheron Constantin’s new 2460 RT movement, original time display method
• Timepieces certified by the Geneva Seal
Vacheron Constantin’s art masters are a group of elite artists who can give their works unique and strong emotional resonance. Since 1755, with the creation of veritable works of art, their innovative spirit and excellent skills have a long history among generations of art masters. The new Métiers d’ Art Master Series Copernicus celestial spheres Copernicus celestial sphere 2460 RT watch fully demonstrates the brand’s artistic achievements. Vacheron Constantin presents the astronomical world in the eyes of Nicholas Copernicus in an orthodox and simple platinum case. This new series was officially unveiled at the SIHH 2017 in Geneva. The original time display is a fusion of meticulous decoration craftsmanship, which aims to pay homage to the ‘heliocentric theory’, the greatest discovery in human history.
As a mathematician and philosopher, Nicholas Copernicus published ‘On the Operation of Celestial Objects’ in 1543, setting off a major astronomical revolution in the history of scientific development. His hypothesis challenges the ancient and long-standing geocentric theory admired by Aristotle and Ptolemy-that the earth is stationary and located at the center of the universe. In this book, Copernicus proposed the heliocentric theory, which not only explained the rotation of the earth around its axis, but also possessed a satellite, the moon, and most importantly, the theory of the earth’s orbit around the sun. Decades later, the theory was further refined, including celestial bodies moving in elliptical orbits. This new type of space theory has triggered profound philosophical thinking on human perception of the world. It overthrows all existing beliefs and leads humanity to break through the ravages and recognize the vast and endless universe. This revolution has had a profound impact in all areas of human thought. Vacheron Constantin pays tribute to this great discovery that has changed the face of the world through his new work.
Same dial, three different interpretations
The Métiers d’ Art master series Copernicus celestial spheres Copernicus celestial sphere 2460 RT watch is a testament to the extraordinary creativity of the masters of Vacheron Constantin. The masters of art designed three different dials and interpreted the same theme in three different ways. The decoration is inspired by the drawings of the 17th-century Dutch-German draftsman Andreas Cellarius, and the famous colorful starry sky map Harmonia Macrocosmica is also presented by his hand. Gorgeous baroque style.
The dial of this series consists of two distinct parts. The oval center is decorated with a hand-carved pink-gold sun face, while the outer disc uses three decorative techniques. A thin elliptical orbit between the two disks provides space for the revolution of the earth. Earth uses a small gold microconvex disk with a diameter of only 6.8 millimeters, and draws a map of the continent from the perspective of the northern hemisphere according to the Lambert cone projection method.
Daming fire enamel art
The first of these three watches uses a variety of enamel crafts that make the brand proud. The enamel master draws inspiration from a map of Copernicus objects drawn by Andreas Serrarius. The earth made with the large open flame enamel technique shows the blue ocean and continental landforms, which is the real art of drawing patterns in a limited space. The background of the starry sky on the gold base is decorated with soft enamel glaze. The fine lines show the trajectory of the five celestial bodies on the dial. Each orbiting celestial body represents a planet, and is named after the Latin as the winter and summer solstice points. The dial’s outer ring is decorated with 12 constellation motifs, painted in enamel. First use the template to draw the outline, then use a feather pen to modify the processing and paint with a brush to complete. The production of this dial requires great patience and care, the working time is more than one month, and it needs to be repeatedly fired at 850 ° C, and finally polished and polished with a grindstone. These extraordinary productions have for centuries established a remarkable Geneva watchmaking tradition.
The second dial draws aesthetic inspiration from the Baroque style and is hand-carved. The 12 constellation patterns are intertwined on the platinum plate. The sculptor showed rich details of ramolayé, highlighting the layered sense of hand-carved patterns, and the unique light and shadow effects brought about by the subtle interaction of bevel angles. Under the observation of a magnifying glass, the muscle lines of Sagittarius are full and powerful, and the Capricorn hair is vivid. On the earth revolving around the golden sun, every delicate treatment pursues the ultimate: the sculpted sparkling ripples float on the ocean; the opposite continent is polished in layers to give off a dazzling golden luster. It can be described as the ultimate interpretation of the brand’s extraordinary skills.
Laser engraving and hand engraving on sapphire crystal
The decoration of the third dial incorporates a number of novel technologies. Along with the beautiful interaction between the earth and the sun, the constellation map uses a starry 3D effect starry sky as a background. The hand-carved earth shimmers with a delicate glow of the ocean and the brilliance of the land, forming a strong contrast effect. The hand-painted midnight blue lower dial is covered with carved sapphire crystal on the back. Vacheron Constantin used innovative laser engraving techniques to outline the constellation pattern. The engraver then highlights the three-dimensional impression of the pattern and the opalescent effect of sapphire in a purely manual manner. The laser-engraved constellation pattern on the front is also coated with Super-Luminova®. The splendid sky and the endless night sky contrast with each other, shining in the dark.
Original display commends superb craftsmanship
These Geneva-certified timepieces are equipped with the 2460 RT automatic mechanical movement designed, developed and manufactured by the brand. It took Vacheron Constantin three years to make possible the wonderful starry sky described by the celestial mind. Two 4N gold triangular outer ring hands indicate time-a hollow hand indicates the hour and a solid hand indicates the minute-both glide slowly on the bezel, and are dedicated by large large gears located outside the movement drive.
The elliptical trajectory of the earth’s revolution around the sun has become the highlight of this timepiece. This display not only catches the eye, but also records the continuous passage of time. The first complication is that the earth rotates in a 24-hour cycle, which is consistent with the average solar day. The second complex function relies on the ‘return’ gear transmission system in the movement to show the elliptical orbit of the earth orbiting the sun with a period of 365.2421898 days, which is equivalent to a return year. Its extremely precise mechanical structure shows the movement of the earth in detail, and it only needs to be calibrated once every 8,000 years to correct the error of one day. It can almost be regarded as a timepiece that never needs to be adjusted! Such a high level of accuracy confirms the brand’s determination to develop a new movement. This masterpiece of timepieces also coincides with the timely demonstration of Vacheron Constantin’s innovative ability in analog time display, which is inseparable from the brand’s exquisite watchmaking skills and over 260 years of breakthrough innovation.
Through the case back, you can admire the gold rotor in the movement. The sapphire crystal case is engraved with the same theme: the dazzling sun surrounded by elliptical orbits. This 352-part automatic mechanical movement has a 40-hour power reserve. The perfect master polishing process follows traditional watchmaking methods and is made by hand.
Twelve unique constellation patterns are engraved on the 43 mm diameter bezel. To ensure ease of use, all functions including the hour, minute, and Earth rotation and revolution can be adjusted through the crown. All three models have a Mississippi alligator strap with a gold buckle. Placed in a rare wooden display box and equipped with a magnifying glass to admire the perfect details of each of the delicate artistic decoration of these works.
