Vacheron Constantin Presents its latest novelties through the first-ever virtual Watches and Wonders Presentation. Through L’Imaginaire by Vacheron Constantin, the brand presents a virtual global platform that presents a whole new world to explore the union of the Maison’s tradition of craftsmanship and spirit of innovation.

 

The platform presents six new stunning collections; Traditonelle Tourbillon Chronograph, Traditonelle Tourbillon, Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin, Overseas QP, Fiftysix and Les Cabinotiers. We discover more on these latest creations from the Swiss watchmaker.

 

 

Traditonelle Lady Tourbillon

 

 

For the first time, the Traditionnelle collection combines aesthetic refinement and technical sophistication in a feminine way, by welcoming the very first Vacheron Constantin self-winding tourbillon in a lady’s watch. Housed within a new 39 mm diamond-set pink gold case, or in a diamond-paved white gold jewellery version, this prestigious horological complication appears in unprecedented feminine finery.

These watches are for women looking for a timepiece that combines precision and style. They feature an extremely thin movement, the in-house 2160 calibre, featuring a peripheral rotor and a three-day power reserve. This is the first time this movement has been at the heart of a watch dedicated to women.

 

Traditonelle Tourbillon Chronograph

 

 

Considered an emblem of Haute Horlogerie, the tourbillon now takes on a stronger personality and more dynamic aura, combined with a monopusher chronograph function which pay tribute to the history of Haute Horlogerie and reflect Vacheron Constantin’s technical mastery in the crafting of Grandes Complications.

 

Through its ties with centuries of watchmaking culture and its dynamic character, this timepiece pays tribute to mechanical complexity while respecting the Maison’s distinctive aesthetic codes and inherent elegance.

 

 

Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin

 

 

The Overseas Perpetual Calendar epitomises the spirit of sporty elegance and now it is presented with a case and bracelet in 18K pink gold. This pink gold is paired with a blue dial to offer a perfect combination of casual chic. There is also an all-gold version featuring links inspired by the Maltese cross that is pure elegance.

 

In addition to the case/bracelet combination, the brilliance of the gold extends to the blue dial, whose hour-markers, hands and moon discs are also made of 18K 5N pink gold. While the blue-lacquered gold dial captivates the eye with its sunburst satin finish, the counters are distinguished by their snailed decoration, while the gold-rimmed minute-rack opts for a velvet finish.

 

 

 

Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Skeleton

 

 

The Overseas collection is enriching its range with a new territory to explore. The prestige of a precious metal case and bracelet is now complemented by the extreme sophistication of an open-worked movement that is also ultra-thin and houses a perpetual calendar, giving the timepiece a contemporary and horologically sophisticated look.

 

Open-working (also called skeletonisation) is regarded by connoisseurs as a watchmaking complication in itself and is indeed a speciality during watchmaking training. This technique, which consists of finely open-working a mechanical movement by hollowing out its components yet without compromising their reliability, is an extremely complex task. For the first time, this craftsmanship is seen in the Overseas collection.

 

 

Fiftysix

 

 

Vacheron Constantin’s retro-contemporary collection adopts a new sepia brown-toned dial colour. A look imbued with a vintage touch, interpreted through two pin gold models with calfskin strap designed for everyday wear. This watch reinforces the vintage character of the Fiftysix and is available in two versions; automatic and complete calendar.

 

 

Les Cabinotiers

 

 

Grouped under the exceptional chiming watches names “La Musique du Temps®”, Les Cabinotiers Astronomical striking grand complication, Les Cabinotiers split-seconds chronograph-Tempo and the singing birds timepieces, are the latest range of one-of-a-kind timepieces created within the Les Cabinotiers department in tribute to the art of music.
