«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. #VintageVacheron

Staying true to its timeless and classic icons, #FrederiqueConstant introduces the #Slimlline Moonphase Manufacture, a beautiful timepiece that mimics the moon’s transformation through the night’s sky on your wrist.
There is no doubt why this great timepiece is one of the most praised watches of the Manufacture Collection !
Have to agree with @theblackdial that some time away from the IG watch world was nice. And that coming back to more of the same (too many Speedies, Batmen, Explorers, and Subs — mine included) is mehhh. Makes me want to wear, and see, anything but those watches for now... 🤷🏻♂️
