A window into Vacheron Constantin’s latest novelties
Traditionnelle tourbillon: a contemporary take on classical design
The new Traditionnelle tourbillon launched in a 41 mm-diameter platinum case features a majestic sunburst green dial. This original colour obtained by galvanic treatment endows the model with depth and intensity, enlivening the gleaming whiteness of the noble metal with brightly shimmering reflections. The contrast is further enhanced by the white gold baton-type hour-markers and Dauphine-style hands, while the deep green strap picks up the dial colour.
The intrinsic elegance of this new Traditionnelle tourbillon also stems from the slenderness of the case, itself enabled by ultra-thin self-winding in-house Calibre 2160/1 measuring only 5.65 mm thick. This thinness is the result of perfect technical mastery, especially since this calibre incorporates a tourbillon regulator mechanism designed to compensate for the effects of gravity on the isochronism of the balance-spring. Enhanced by an alligator leather strap in the same colour, this hue endows the model with both depth and majesty. Powered by ultra-thin self-winding in-house Calibre 2160/1, this model displays the hours and minutes with central hands, while the small seconds appear at 6 o’clock on the tourbillon.
Traditionnelle tourbillon retrograde date openface: tradition meets modernity
The expression of an avant-garde aesthetic, the demand for mechanical sophistication and the desire to share creative expertise are at the heart of this Traditionnelle tourbillon retrograde date openface watch. The opening onto the architecture of the 2162 R31 movement – with its slate grey shade achieved by an NAC surface treatment – perfectly visible on both sides of the watch, highlights its mechanical power. The retrograde date display, complemented by a tourbillon, gains depth in a functional and contemporary style.
Tradition and contemporary aesthetics: the new Traditionnelle tourbillon watch embodies a perfectly balanced expression of this alliance. Epitomising horological expertise with its tourbillon regulator integrated within the ultra-thin Calibre 2162/1, it opts for a sunburst deep green dial beautifully framed by a 950 platinum case.
Overseas moon phase retrograde date: first ever sport watch with a retrograde display for Vacheron Constantin
For the first time ever, the Overseas line thus incorporates a retrograde display, a function that is part of Vacheron Constantin’s living heritage and continually reinvents itself. The new model keeps the collection iconic attributes immediately recognisable: six-sided bezel evoking the Maltese cross, fluted crown, polished and satin-brushed finishes, translucent lacquered dial, luminescent hour-markers and hands, interchangeable straps, by combining them with a retrograde date and a precision moon-phase.
Patrimony retrograde day-date: the art of equilibrium, minimalist design meets watchmaking elegance
At Vacheron Constantin, technique is consistently dedicated to serving elegance. Since its founding in 1755, the Manufacture has cultivated the refinement of its watches as an art form, corresponding to one of the Bauhaus principles holding that "less is more". This is reflected in the platinum Patrimony retrograde day-date with salmon-coloured dial. This rare alliance between platinum and salmon is part of the Maison’s heritage and since 2022 has been the sign of a new aesthetic that can be found across its various collections in limited annual production.
Overseas self-winding: a new silhouette
Four new references in steel and 18K 5N pink gold enrich the Overseas collection, in a 34.5 mm diameter for the non-set versions and 35 mm for the gemset models. With these new sizes suited to both men's and women's wrists, the case design has been subtly refined. Three of the new models feature a sunburst blue lacquered dial with a velvety finish for the minutes track, while the fourth in gemset steel is graced with a pink hue. The new watches are fitted with an integrated metal bracelet in 18K 5N gold or steel, depending on the model, secured by two additional interchangeable leather and rubber straps with pin buckles or folding clasps. The colour of the two additional straps corresponds to that of the dials: blue on the non-set gold and steel versions, and gemset beige-pink on the steel variation. Calibre 1088/1 has been chosen to power these pieces. Equipped with a stop-seconds mechanism enabling precision adjustment, it is fitted with the 22K gold rotor bearing the collection's emblematic compass rose, which ensures winding with a 40-hour power reserve.
