COPERNICUS CELESTIAL SPHERES 2460 RT Hand-engraving
VACHERON CONSTANTIN’S TRIBUTE TO NICOLAS COPERNICUS
In 1543, NICOLAS COPERNICUS changed the world with the « HELIOCENTRISM » astronomical model and this year (at the SIHH 2017) VACHERON CONSTANTIN presents 3 « Métiers d’Art » versions of the humankind’s greatest discoveries.
The 3 versions are Geneva Hallmark certified and to display the time, two triangular hands (in 4n Gold) are subtly present on the front dial. The cut-out one shows the hours and the solid one, the minutes.
However the COPERNICUS CELESTIAL SPHERES 2460 RT has two Fabulous complications! First, the Earth spins on its axis in a 24 hours period (one solar day). Second, the Earth does a full revolution on its elliptical orbit in 365,2 days (one tropical year). So, yes! you also have the month indication.
This particular version has a Stunning hand-engraved dial.
The 12 zodiac signs are beautifully intertwine and overlap on a white gold disc. The know-how of VACHERON CONSTANTIN’S engraver is amazing as all details, volumes, textures are perfect visually. The craftsmanship is pushed to the extreme in terms of finesse and we highly recommend you to use a magnifying glass.
A Poetic, High-end Astronomical creation or creations !
BRAVO, VACHERON CONSTANTIN.
