Métiers d'Art “Hommage aux Grands Explorateurs” is a series of luxury wristwatches by Vacheron Constantin.

In the series Métiers d'Art two models are dedicated to the two famous explorers Christopher Columbus and Marco Polo. The enameled dials of the watches show the routes traveled by the explorers on historical world maps. On the lower part of the dial, in a 120° segment, the minute scale is placed, on which the hour numerals slide clockwise one after the other.

Vacheron Constantin won the Middle East Public Prize at the Grand Prix d'Horlogerie de Genève for the Patrimony Hommage aux Grands Explorateurs in November, 2004.
