When night gives way to day, the sky takes on a graceful azure shade. Vacheron Constantin has chosen this elegant hue to adorn the mother-of-pearl dial of the Malte manual-winding watch unveiled at the opening of the Vacheron Constantin boutique on Tmall. A light blue colour dedicated to women who experience each morning as a discovery, offering momentum towards new horizons.

The tonneau case has been one of the signature tokens of Vacheron Constantin’s creative heritage since 1912. For this special edition of 100 numbered and engraved watches, the finely cambered case adopts the shimmering warmth of 18K 5N pink gold. This refined case beautifully frames the azure colour of its slightly domed dial, punctuated by slender hands and applied hour-markers in pink gold.
