Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier introduces a small masterpiece of complexity with a height of barely 2.6 mm, born of its tradition and its artisanal-industrial manufacturing process :the Seed VMF 5401self-winding, extra-thin from a height of 2.6 mm.
A development of the VMF 5301 movement, it retains the latter’s robustness and slenderness to which it adds new automatic functions enabling it to be wound and recharged as quickly as a conventional self-winding calibre. Specially optimized for the Seed VMF 5401 by the company atokalpa, the variable-inertia balance ensures optimal isochronism. Designed to incorporate additional mechanisms, it exists in a version with calendar – the Seed VMF 5400.
The perfection of this high-end movement associates your brand with an ideal aesthetic – uncommon finishing, such as bridges chamfered the traditional way using a piercer – its beauty showcased by the presence of your maker’s mark on its micro-rotor. The minimum order is for 25 movements at a unit price of 1,490 CHF.
