Vacheron Constantin Drops Crisp New White Gold Traditionnelle complete calendar11/02/2021
Vacheron Constantin has applied a crisp contemporary slate grey look to a classic calendar watch for its new Traditionnelle complete calendar.
The 41mm watch bears all of the hallmarks of golden age, mid-century watch design from its dauphin hands and railway minute track, but given over to more modern proportions and a sober color palatte.
Day and Month windows are positioned on opposite sides of the dial with a date scale running around its perimeter, indicated using a crescent-tipped central pointer, while a moonphase sits at the six o’clock position. The complete calendar arrangement expands on the day/date/month triple calendar combination of complications with the addition of a moonphase that will only require one correction every 122 years.
Powered by Vacheron Constantin’s Calibre 2460 QCL/1 4Hz automatic movement, the watch is already available in 18k pink gold and now presented in 18k white gold with a “velvet-finish” slate grey dial.
The Traditionnelle complete calendar is available now via Vacheron Constantin, priced £35,100 GBP (approximately $47,900 USD).
