Vacheron Tribute to Great ExplorersVacheron Constantin has added two new timepieces to their collection, created to pay tribute to two of histories greatest explorers - Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus. The Metiers d'Art Tribute to Great Explorers are entirely hand-crafted and are to be produced in a limited series of sixty pieces of each design. The most impressive aspect of the Tribute to Great Explorers watches are the beautiful dials, created by employing the art of 'grand feu' enameling. The two dials represent Marco Polo's journey from 1271 to 1295 across Central Asia and Christopher Columbus's journey from 1492 to 1493 from Huelva to San Salvador and his discovery of America.
