This short film takes you through the creative process behind the development of Vacheron Constantin’s Métiers d’Art Florilège trilogy, a tribute to the delicateness of English botanical illustration in the late 18th century. The three new designs – White Lily, Queen and China Limodoron – draw inspiration from the botanical reference 1799 book ‘The Temple of Flora’, featuring exquisite illustrations commissioned by passionate botanist and physician Robert John Thornton.
All three models feature expert craftsmanship, with stunning hand-guillochage patterned design, grand feu enamelling and a meticulously set diamond bezel, with round or baguette-cut diamonds, meeting Vacheron Constantin’s demanding standards for purity.
