Vacheron Constantin celebrates the year of the goat
Vacheron Constantin presents The Legend of the Chinese Zodiac – a series of captivating timepieces based on the 12-year cycle.
Once again VACHERON CONSTANTIN is celebrating the Chinese Zodiac with its 12-year cycle of animals.
This year it’s the turn of the noble goat (with a creative and charming nature), which is set to take over from the horse on February 19, 2015.
The company has handcrafted two sets of limited edition timepieces (there are just 12 of each), which come in a choice of platinum or rose gold (with dark blue or dark brown alligator straps respectively).
The design features a leaf motif inspired by classical Chinese iconography, which is etched directly in the metal dial.
This is topped with an engraved goat, which sits on top of the watch face and behind the sapphire crystal case.
The Calibre 2460 G4 mechanical, self-winding movement is equipped with a 22-carat gold oscillating weight, and has a 40 hour power reserve.
The watch is part of a wider trend for European luxury companies to create special pieces celebrating the Chinese zodiac.
