Vacheron Constantin - Traditionnelle tourbillon

Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle tourbillon

The Traditionnelle collection is welcoming the very first Vacheron Constantin self-winding tourbillon in a lady’s watch, available in two precious models.

For the first time, Vacheron Constantin highlights the majestic tourbillon complication through the prism of feminine elegance. Housed within a new 39 mm case, the timepiece is available in 18 carats 5N pink gold set with brilliant-cut diamonds with a mother-of-pearl dial or in 18 carats white gold set with brilliant and baguette-cut diamonds on both case and dial. The Traditionnelle tourbillon watch beats to the rhythm of the in-house 2160 calibre, a guarantee of reliability, precision and finesse accentuated by hand-crafted fine watchmaking finishes.

A round stepped case, a discreet bezel, a fluted case-back, a rail-track minute-circle, slender dauphine-shaped hands and baton-type hour-markers: the pure and elegant Traditionnelle collection showcases technical refinement conveyed through eminently horological characteristics.

Technical refinement meets aesthetic elegance in this model imbued with exquisite femininity. It is the epitome of glowing radiance, balanced proportions and subtle details. Its classic 39 mm case crafted from 18 carats 5N pink gold sparkles with 208 brilliant-cut diamonds set on the bezel, caseband and lugs. Its mother-of-pearl dial provides an iridescent backdrop for the majestic spectacle of the tourbillon, surrounded by a diadem of 46 brilliant-cut diamonds. Precious finery indeed for this Traditionnelle tourbillon that is an integral part of the collection’s aesthetic heritage. The extremely slim case features stepped flanks and a fluted caseback. The dial is punctuated by a rail-track minute-circle with dauphine-shaped hands and pink gold baton-type hourmarkers.

The watch wraps itself around the wrist on a grey satin strap secured by a diamond-set folding clasp. A second grey strap in alligator leather is delivered with the timepiece.

Sculpted in 18 carats white gold, this prestigious timepiece reinterprets the heritage of the Traditionnelle collection through an elegant 39 mm stepped round case, a slender bezel, a fluted caseback and a dial swept over by dauphine-shaped hands. The collection’s characteristic design nonetheless gives way to the flamboyance of diamonds. Bedecked in 559 brilliant-cut and baguette-cut diamonds totalling more than 6.5 carats, the Traditionnelle tourbillon jewellery watch highlights the technical sophistication of the tourbillon, whose low frequency makes it possible to admire each rotation.

The watch embraces the wrist with a dazzling halo of light on a blue satin strap secured by a diamond-set gold folding clasp. Available exclusively in Vacheron Constantin boutiques, the Traditionnelle tourbillon jewellery comes with a second blue strap in alligator leather.

Calibre 2160, elegance and precision

The in-house 2160 calibre unveiled in 2018 finds its place for the first time at the heart of a watch dedicated to women. Thanks to the tourbillon that cancels out the effects of the Earth's gravity, this self-winding movement is distinguished by its extreme precision, operating at a low 2.5 Hertz frequency enabling one to admire the steady beating of the mechanism. The 2160 calibre is also impressively slender. Equipped with a peripheral rotor, this 188-part movement is only 5.65 mm thick. A silhouette pared down to essentials results in a case measuring 39 mm in diameter and 11.22 mm thick, whose harmonious proportions are perfectly suited to the feminine wrist.

In addition to its reliability and precision, the 2160 calibre is characterised by a comfortable 80-hour power reserve and the presence of a small seconds display on the tourbillon by means of a blackened screw – a function highlighted by meticulous attention to each and every aesthetic detail. On the front, the bar of the openworked tourbillon carriage inspired by the shape of the Maltese cross, is entirely hand-bevelled, an operation lasting almost 11 hours for this component alone. Visible through the transparent caseback, the movement is adorned with Côtes de Genève finishing. These traditional decorations contrast with the refined aesthetics of the peripheral rotor in sandblasted 22 carats gold.
