  • «Philosophia» was a special bespoke request to @VacheronConstantin from a private client, in 2011. ✨⁣

🌖 This unique wristwatch (43mm diameter) features a single hand on a 24-hours dial, moon-phases, Tourbillon and minute-repeater complications. It houses a 522 components caliber for a power reserve of 58 hours!⁣
⁣
⏱️ The Maison was honored with a similar request in the past with ref. 4582. A large and uncommon 20K yellow gold, key less, dress watch with single hand and special champlevé enamel.⁣
⁣
💎 The diamond-set dial was a special request from the client (who requested to add some of his own diamonds to the piece).⁣
⁣
✍️ Engraved on the case back, a text in French from philosopher Marc Aurèle, which means: “One more moment, and you'll have forgotten everything; one more moment, and everyone will have forgotten you” (Book VII, XXI, “Conversations with myself” (121-180)).⁣
⁣
🧐 On the dial: “Utere non reditura” meaning “Use time wisely, it will not come back”. This sentence can be seen on a few other sundials.⁣

🔨 1/2 pieces was sold by Antiquorum in 2011.⁣
