The new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle tourbillon watch has a 41 mm diameter platinum case and a majestic sunburst green dial.
Obtained by galvanic treatment, the dial’s sunburst green tone endows the model with depth and intensity, vitalizing the brilliance of platinum case with brightly shimmering reflections. The contrast is further enhanced by the white gold baton-type hour- markers and Dauphine-style hands.
This new Traditionnelle tourbillon has a slender case, thanks to the ultra-thin in-house Calibre 2160/1 measuring only 5.65 mm thick.
The tourbillon regulator beats at 18,000 vibrations per hour (2.5 Hz). Often found in historical pocket watches, this slow rhythm provides an opportunity to appreciate its mechanical ballet. This self-winding mechanical movement is also capable of delivering a power reserve of 80 hours.
Visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, the 22K gold peripheral rotor guarantees the slenderness of the movement as well as an unobstructed view of its operation.
The movement has a circular grained baseplate appearing on the dial side and hand-bevelled bridges adorned with Côtes de Genève on the caseback.
The tourbillon, with its Maltese cross-shaped carriage features the small seconds indicated by a blackened screw. Its suspension bar has been delicately polished to obtain a conical and semi-cylindrical shape.
This new Traditionnelle Tourbillon watch comes with a green alligator leather strap with a 950 platinum folding buckle.
