Now this is really interesting!! VC launched the Masks series in 2007 in a set of 4 watches. These masks were inspired by the masks in Geneva's Barbier Muller museum and perfect examples of primary arts
The Masks were created in a limited sweries of 25 sets of 4 watches each. In 2008 and 2009 Vacheron Constantin introduced 2 other sets, the set up for auction is the second series from 2008.
Collectors have been waiting to see these watches come on the secondary market and Antiquorum will be auctioning a Masks set for the very 1st time and the results should be quite interesing!!
