The difference from the structure of the movement, which is removed directly from the face plate, lies in the hollowing out of a large part of the material and the carving of motifs on the remaining parts. This is, of course, a very labor-intensive practice, but the process demonstrated is rather delicate, beautiful and speechless.
Openwork is a process of eliminating excess. Vacheron Constantin through craftsmanship exquisite craft, the hollow movement to be perfect.
