Vacheron Constantin introduces the Traditionnelle Complete Calendar in white gold

Founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is the world’s oldest watch Manufacture in continuous production for over 265 years, faithfully perpetuating a proud heritage of watchmaking excellence and stylistic sophistication through generations of master craftsmen.

At the pinnacle of Haute Horlogerie and understated elegance, the Maison creates timepieces with unique technical and aesthetic signatures, and an extremely high level of finishing touches. Vacheron Constantin brings to life unparalleled heritage and a spirit of innovation through its collections: Patrimony, Traditionnelle, Métiers d’Art, Overseas, Fiftysix, Historiques and Égérie.

Today, Vacheron Constantin presents a new iteration of the Traditionnelle Complete Calendar. The Swiss watchmaker 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.

The Traditionnelle Complete Calendar watch is powered by the in-house calibre 2460 QCL/1. With its 308 components is an evolved version of Calibre 2450, the first automatic movement entirely designed and developed by Vacheron Constantin. Equipped with a stop-seconds mechanism, it beats at a rate of 28,800 vph and has a 40-hour power reserve. Featuring a 22K gold openworked oscillating weight with a design inspired by the Maison’s Maltese cross emblem, the movement visible from the back bears all the finishing touches one would expect from an Haute Horlogerie calibre, such as its circular-grained baseplate and chamfered bridges adorned with a ‘Côtes de Genève’ motif.

Water-resistant to 30 meters, the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar White Gold (ref. 4010T/000G-B740) is worn on a black Mississippiensis alligator leather strap secured by an 18K white gold pin buckle. It is presented as part of the permanent collection and will be priced at € 40,800.
