Sculpting The Highest Beauty Of Watch Beauty

Around 1760, the watchmaker Andre-Charles Caron created the world’s first skeleton watch in order to attract more watch enthusiasts to appreciate his timepieces in the Rue Saint-Denis store in Paris. Reveal the mysterious veil of the watch’s internal structure to the world, and present the fine parts such as the hollowed-out main board, bridge and gear. This unprecedented craftsmanship has created a new chapter in the history of watches and clocks.
After the introduction of skeletonized watches, every gear and pinion and other parts inside the watch have been carefully trimmed, polished and decorated, and present the most perfect posture.

Around 1760, the watchmaker Andre-Charles Caron created the world’s first skeleton watch in order to attract more watch enthusiasts to admire its timepieces in Paris’ Rue Saint-Denis store. The mysterious veil of the internal structure, and the hollow parts of the motherboard, the bridge, the gear and other fine parts. This unprecedented craftsmanship has created a new chapter in the history of watches and clocks. Andre-Charles Caron is the father of the famous playwright Pierre-Augustin (born 1732). In fact, Caron has a unique sense of aesthetics and artistic creation. His decorated room and furniture are beautiful, and his carefully made watches are also unique. The balanced hands of the watches introduced at the time were ingenious and flawless, just like other antique watches in the Vacheron Constantin Museum in Geneva.
Intricate mechanical structure and superb technology make skeletonized watches a rare craft
After the introduction of skeletonized watches, every gear and pinion and other parts inside the watch have been carefully trimmed, polished and decorated, and present the most perfect posture. However, the watch masters are not just satisfied with the exquisite polishing technology. They have further exerted their sophisticated skills and turned the movement into a timeless art work. Whether it is the main board or the cross bridge, they have been carefully carved and Polished to show an unparalleled streamlined beauty. After multiple processes, more than half of the metal in the movement will be removed. Each watch’s main board, bridge and trim are adorned with gold-plated or solid gold lace, elegant and magnificent; all prominent positions have been carefully carved and polished by the watchmaker. Master watchmakers refer to these decorative techniques as “hollow craftsmanship”, and the watches made are called “hollow watches”. The perfect combination of gold-plating technology and watchmaking technology, coupled with gem-setting technology, such as barrel-shaped Malte tourbillon skeleton jewelry watch, is refreshing.

In fact, this is the best match, because only time can truly test the eternal beauty of diamonds. Therefore, watchmakers choose to set their watches with diamonds and other precious stones. Watches and clocks have since become one of the treasures of the emperors. The intricate mechanical structure and superb technology make the skeleton watch a rare craft. Today, most brands of watches can only see a small number of movements, such as precision auxiliary mechanical devices, and only a few watch brands can create completely hollow watches. For a long time, Vacheron Constantin has refined different styles of skeleton watches with orthodox and perfect skeleton technology-from the simplest to the most precise mechanical device. Management has always been committed to preserving and recreating these Geneva watchmaking techniques from centuries ago.
