Embodying a contemporary expression of the grand Geneva watchmaking tradition, each new model houses a Manufacture mechanical movement, manual-winding or self-winding depending on the model and adorned with exquisite hand-crafted finishing. Showcasing the full spectrum of the watchmaking art, from simple displays to the most sophisticated complications, this line pays tribute to the technical and aesthetic expertise of Vacheron Constantin, enriched by almost three centuries of uninterrupted activity.
Grand Complication masterpieces
Traditionnelle calibre 2755 and Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon
Graced with a generously sized 44 or 42 mm-diameter pink gold case, two masterpieces – Traditionnelle calibre 2755 and Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon – demonstrate a rare degree of complexity and technical accomplishment. The first unites three major Fine Watchmaking complications: a tourbillon, a perpetual calendar and a minute repeater with centripetal flying strike governor. The second equally exclusive model also features an openworked tourbillon shaped like a Maltese cross, the Vacheron Constantin emblem, and boasts an impressive 14-day power reserve thanks to four series-coupled barrels. These exceptional creations are equipped with equally outstanding mechanisms in the form of mechanical manual-winding movements developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin and graced with traditional finishing testifying to fine craftsmanship and horological excellence.
Traditionnelle with ultra-thin self-winding caliber, Traditionnelle day-date and power reserve, Traditionnelle with simple display – manual-winding or self-winding
The Traditionnelle collection comprises sophisticated creations as well as simple and elegant models. This new range attired in 18K 5N pink gold and slate-grey tones represents its most up-to-date expression, through an array of watches equipped with classic functions: hours and minutes for the Traditionnelle with ultra-thin self-winding caliber; central seconds, day, date and power-reserve indication for the Traditionnelle day-date and power reserve; small seconds at 9 o’clock and date for the Traditionnelle with simple display. These three understated yet refined models are powered by mechanical self-winding movements visible through the sapphire crystal caseback. One of them houses Caliber 1120, an ultra-thin movement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, comprising 144 parts and measuring just 2.45 mm thick. The line-up of new interpretations is complemented by a final manual-winding variation indicating the hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o’clock, for an almost three-day power reserve.
