Remaining faithful to its history, the Le Locle-based Vulcain Manufacture has added a new model to its “Métier d’Art” collection which celebrates the age-old specialist art of cloisonné enamel.
This difficult technique, which requires patience and attention to detail, brings exceptional precision to the design, as well as unique and long-lasting colour rendering.
Following on from “Le Vulcain” watch in 2015, the Manufacture is once again taking its inspiration from a Greek god: Poseidon. God of the seas and oceans, he is instantly recognisable by the trident he holds in one hand.
This new model represents both strength and elegance, two fundamental values which have always motivated the brand’s designers when creating each timepiece.
Limited edition of 18 pieces, the new Vulcain 50s Presidents’ Cloisonné Grand Feu “Poseidon” features a 42mm diameter case made of 18K pink gold. It is powered by the self-winding Vulcain Cricket Manufacture Calibre V-20.
