The 260th Anniversary has presented a new special engraving design, named “Fleurisanne”.
Historically, J-M VACHERON should have previously chosen this special design for his first pocket watches and then, I suppose that was one reason for VC to re-introduce this design into the 260th Anniversary collection.
Alexandre, if available, could you please post photos of J-M VACHERON’s 1755 pocket watch(es) and possibly some other vintage watches (pocket or wrist models) with this “Fleurisanne” engraving design.
After having seen again some pieces of the new collection in the Parisian VC Boutique, (a Warm thanks to the Team) I was very impressed by the Quality of the engraving with so much relief on each part. It should require a very highly cautious attention to not break the rigidity of mechanism.
As this design is not usually offered in current collections, it should mean that VC engravers had to train them for a long time to perform so artistically in these new collection models.
Please, could you share more information about the process followed (few years of practice???).
How is chosen the place for each "fleur" (flower)? By the Designer according to technical constraints?
