Pure magic. 🌟

The master engravers in the Vacheron Constantin workshops took up a real challenge: adding volume to the original two-dimensional drawings, and interpreting their colours through finishing effects. 🎈 Each hot-air balloon called for up to three weeks of craftsmanship in order to reproduce the entire range of subtle feature and ornamental details of the original works. The dials thus compose authentic miniature scenes graced with an extraordinary variety of motifs.

Versatile Elegance.
The Overseas Chronograph comes in a pink gold 42.5 mm-diameter case. Its screwed-down pushpieces, crown and caseback guarantee water-resistance to 150 metres, while its transparent back reveals a 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a wind rose.

Classically elegant.

This Traditionnelle complete calendar watch equipped with a useful and refined horological complication is powered by a mechanical self-winding movement: Caliber 2460 QCL, entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin.
Its 308 components include a 22K gold oscillating weight visible through the sapphire crystal back of the 41 mm-diameter case in 18K 5N pink gold.

Vintage inspired.
Like its vintage predecessor, the Historiques Triple calendrier 1948 is crafted in 18K 4N pink gold, a tone that is closer to the original version and endows it with an extremely elegant style.

Issued in two limited series of 200 pieces each, it revives the reference 4240L presented in 1948: a triple calendar enriched with a sophisticated astronomical complication – the highprecision lunar cycle– along with small seconds at 6 o’clock.

Timeless.

With their calendar function, round case with triple gadroons, two-tone dial, “claw-type” lugs and mechanical manual-winding movement, the superb Historiques Triple calendrier 1942 models are reviving a typical Vacheron Constantin complication and style from this era.

8.1 mm thick.
The Overseas ultra-thin perpetual calendar - representing one of the slimmest on the market - houses Vacheron Constantin Caliber 1120 QP/1, an ultra-thin mechanical self-winding movement powering perpetual calendar and moon-phase indications.
An authentic feat of miniaturisation, this 4.05 mm thick movement comprising 276 parts keeps track of calendar irregularities with no need for correction until 2100.

Overseas. The curves of the case ensure seamless integration with the bracelet or strap, a feature that is both technically sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing. The six-sided bezel and the fluted crown with its grooves evoke the Maison design codes. 📷 Picture courtesy of @h.m.uhren

Embracing the new.

The day-date FIFTYSIX®️ with its 40 mm-diameter case in steel or 18 carats 5N pink gold provides additional functions driven by its self-winding movement, Calibre 2475 SC/2.
Equipped with a stop-seconds device, the latter powers the day of the week indication appearing at 9 o’clock, the date at 3 o’clock and the power-reserve display at 6 o’clock.

Relaxed refinement.
Introducing the FIFTYSIX complete calendar with precision moon phase. Behind the understated elegance of its monochrome dial with opaline-sunburst effect lies one of the horological complications most appreciated by discerning connoisseurs and collectors.
The indications of the day of the week, date, month and moon phase are driven by a self-winding movement, Calibre 2460 QCL/1, equipped with a 22 carats openworked oscillating weight adorned with the Maltese cross emblem.
Its construction and its extreme precision mean that the moon-phase function requires adjustment only once every 122 years (compared with once every three years or a standard moon phase). #FIFTYSIX #VCSIHH 📷 Picture courtesy of @swisswatches

New milestone.
The 41 mm-diameter case of the Traditionnelle tourbillon houses the first self-winding movement developed by Vacheron Constantin.
In addition to the elegance of its openworked carriage shaped like a Maltese cross, the emblem of the Manufacture, Caliber 2160 is distinguished by its incredible slimness: this ultra-thin 188-part movement endowed with an approximately 80-hour power reserve measures just 5.65 mm thick.

FIFTYSIX®️.
A name and a date evoking an iconic model presented in 1956: the reference 6073.
Through its typical design expressing the particularly abundant creativity displayed by Vacheron Constantin during that period, this timepiece is distinguished by its shapes – and notably its lugs, each representing a branch of the Maltese cross that has become an emblem of the Manufacture.
