Vacheron Constantin Malte Tourbillon Openworked
A fresh interpretation in rose gold of the Malte Tourbillon Openworked revealed in 2014.
Two new pink gold creations are joining The Malte collection and its creations featuring a tonneau shape case, contemporary lines and a pure, understated display. A few days ago, we unveiled the Malte Moon Phase and Power Reserve model. Today, let's discover the Malte Tourbillon Openworked timepiece.
In 2014, Vacheron Constantin created Caliber 2790 SQ, a skeletonised barrel-shaped caliber, for the Malte Tourbillon Openworked in a platinum case. The collection is now joined by a Malte Tourbillon Openworked model with an 18K 5N pink gold case.
This new creation bearing the Hallmark of Geneva is a rare occurrence in the Fine Watchmaking world. Its curved 38 x 48.24 mm pink gold case frames an entirely openworked and hand-engraved barrel-shaped tourbillon movements, enhanced by an imposing Maltese cross-shaped tourbillon.
Around 540 hours of patient, rigorous and accurate workmanship, from the development of the caliber to the manual finishing of each of its 246 components, are required to achieve the clever balance between a tourbillon mechanism and the aery openworked aesthetic.
Coated in pink gold, this emechanism powering indications of the hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 o’clock on tourbillon carriage, date and power reserve (approximately 45 hours), appears through a transparent sapphire dial rimmed by a silver-toned ring and punctuated by 11 baton-type hour-markers as well as an applied Roman (XII) numeral in 18K 5N pink gold.
The curved shape of the watch is complemented by an elegant alligator leather brown strap secured by a half Maltese cross-shaped folding clasp.
An exploration of the history of Vacheron Constantin is a voyage of discovery, revealing the excellence of age-old watchmaking. Each timepiece is the result of the creative inspiration of the watchmaker or craftsman, dedicating their knowhow to the birth of outstanding watches.
