Featuring a velvet-finish slate grey dial framed by an 18K white gold case, the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar watch perpetuates the spirit of 18th century Geneva fine watchmaking.
With its stepped round case and lugs, fluted caseback and railway minute-track swept over by Dauphine-style hours and minutes hands, this classically styled contemporary wristwatch retains Vacheron Constantin’s signature touch of originality in the display of the calendar indications. The day and month windows are positioned around the rim of the dial, while the date is shown by a dedicated pointer. This layout particularly highlights a precision moon phase located at 6 o’clock.
Already available in 18K pink gold, the new Traditionnelle complete calendar watch is now presented in a 41 mm case in 18K white gold and features a velvet-finish slate grey dial.
The Traditionnelle complete calendar watch is powered by Calibre 2460 QCL/1. This type of triple-display calendar represents a complication that is an integral part of the Manufacture’s heritage. Calibre 2460 QCL/1 with its 308 components is an evolved version of Calibre 2450, the first self-winding movement entirely designed and developed by Vacheron Constantin.
Equipped with a stop-seconds mechanism, it beats at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, has a 40-hour power reserve and – in addition to its triple calendar indications – drives a precision moon phase requiring only one correction every 122 years.
Featuring a 22K gold open-worked oscillating weight with a design inspired by the Maison’s Maltese cross emblem, the movement visible from the back bears all the finishing touches one would expect from an Haute Horlogerie calibre, such as its circular-grained baseplate and chamfered bridges adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif.
Water-resistant to 30 metres, the Traditionnelle complete calendar watch is fitted with a black Mississippiensis alligator leather strap secured by an 18K white gold pin buckle.
