VACHERON CONSTANTIN NOVELTIES - APRIL 2021 NEWS
Vacheron Constantin have wowed again this year with their new 2021 releases.
OVERSEAS TOURBILLON 18K PINK GOLD
This stunning new model is made with an 18K rose gold case with sapphire crystal and water resistance up to 50 meters. The Overseas model is complemented by a gold bracelet and folding clasp, just like its case. While the brushed surfaces dominate the case, the bezel features a polished finish. Located at the heart of the watch, the in-house automatic Caliber 2160 has a Tourbillon balance system. Produced with Geneva Hallmark level craftsmanship and engineering quality, the movement offers 80 hours of power reserve.
The Overseas Perpetual Calendar has become one of the innovations of Vacheron Constantin. Complete with sapphire crystal and a highly complicated structure, which does not compromise on sportiness this model has a water resistance value of 50 meters. Day, date, month, leap year, and moon phase information on the blue dial is supported by the in-house automatic Caliber 1120QP / 1.
OVERSEAS PERPETUAL CALENDAR ULTRA-THIN WHITE GOLD
The new Overseas perpetual calendar ultra-thin is now available in 18K white gold, which flaunts its technical complexity with all the inherent elegance and distinction of the collection. This model with its timeless design is instantly recognisable: a hexagonal bezel evoking the Maltese cross, a fluted crown, polished and satin-brushed finishes, a translucent lacquered dial with facetted and luminescent gold hour-markers and hands... This watch exudes a sense of total harmony wherever it may find itself.
Its blue lacquered dial with a sunburst satin finish features an aura of relaxed elegance, displaying the hours, minutes, perpetual calendar indications – meaning the day of the week, date, month and leap year by 48-month counter – and the moon phases. This timepiece is driven by the emblematic Calibre 1120 QP/1, an ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement barely 4.05 mm thick, beating at a frequency of 2.75 Hz and endowed with an approximately 40-hour power reserve.
Its perpetual calendar copes smoothly with calendar irregularities and will require no correction until 2100. Achieving such a performance with such a thin movement, comprising 276 components, called for authentic prowess in terms of both construction and miniaturisation.
HISTORIQUES AMERICAN 1921
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Historiques American 1921's legendary design, the Maison is reinterpreting this historic watch in two main new variations, powered by in-house manual-winding Calibre 4400 AS.
A Roaring Twenties icon
The origin of the watch can be even traced back to 1919. At the time, the Maison experimented with numerous case shapes, always in small series. The wristwatch became then a genre in its own, which found its style notably in the shapes it adopted, especially the cushion one.
Two white gold models in 40 mm and 36.5 mm diameters are complemented by straps in patinated calf leather, crafted in Milan by Italian leather goods company Serapian.
ÉGÉRIE SELF-WINDING DIAMOND-PAVÉ
At the crossroads between Haute Horlogerie and Haute Couture, the Égérie collection reveals a new facet of its personality with two new Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé models. Its chic and classic allure, tinged with a hint of playfulness, appears attired in a sparkling robe of light, while maintaining its signature asymmetrical displays.
The new Égérie self-winding diamond-pavé watch in 18K 5N pink gold catches and reflects light from all angles. The secret of its beauty? A stunning setting of 303 diamonds accentuating the slender bezel, flanks, lugs and even inter-lugs of its 35mm-diameter case in 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold. The gold dial sparkles with the same brilliance. Adorned with 574 diamonds, it transforms the passing of time into a truly dazzling sight.
