Replica Vacheron Constantin watch has a full suite of Metiers d’Art timepieces featuring lavish decoration in enamel and other artisanal techniques, but the Metiers d’Art Villes Lumieres centres on an unusual theme: nighttime aerial views of New York, Paris or Geneva.
Each of the three fake vacheron constantin minute repeater calibre watches depicts the cityscapee with champleve enamel in varying hues of blues, greens and greys. The technique starts with a solid gold dial base that’s engraved with the motif, then hand-painted with vitreous enamel that has to be fired in an oven to set.
This creates the cityscapes bordered in gold, with the nighttime illumination done by Japanese artist Yoko Imai. Using tiny diamonds, pearls as well as flecks of gold and platinum – the technique is similar to that found in traditional Japanese lacquerware known as maki-e – Imai creates the impression of lighted streets and boulevards.
