A Traditionnelle model exclusively for the Moscow Boutique
To celebrate the opening of its new Moscow Boutique that has now taken up residence in Berlin House, Vacheron Constantin presents a new Traditionnelle. This elegant timepiece issued in a 30-piece limited edition is distinguished by a finely hand-guilloché slate-grey dial.
The Traditionnelle Moscow Boutique Edition is heir to a longstanding watchmaking tradition and pays tribute to longstanding expertise, acquired over a period of almost 260 years by a Manufacture that set out to conquer Russia at a very early stage in its history. Its pure lines and harmonious proportions display its classic and timeless character, enhanced by a slender bezel, a knurled motif surrounding the screw-down case-back fitted with a sapphire crystal, 18K white gold applied hour-markers and dauphine hands. Its slate-grey dial is finely hand-guilloché – one of the many artistic crafts cultivated by the Manufacture – and reflects a unique motif inspired by the façade of Moscow’s stellar landmark, the Kremlin.
This timepiece, issued in a 30-piece limited edition, meets the demanding requirements of the Hallmark of Geneva – the highest benchmark in the field of Haute Horlogerie testifying to the quality, craftsmanship and reliability of an exceptional timepiece produced within the territory of the Canton of Geneva.
At the heart of its case ticks the ultra-thin self-winding 1120 movement. Developed and produced in- house by Vacheron Constantin, it beats at a frequency of 2.75 Hz (19,800 vibrations/hour) and has an approximately 40-hour power reserve. Its finishing and construction are a testament to its finely crafted nature. Not only are the main flat surfaces of the movement adorned with a meticulous “Côtes de Genève” motif, but all their sharp angles are bevelled and hand-polished – as too are the screw heads.
To accommodate this demonstration of mechanical virtuosity in the style it deserves, Vacheron Constantin created the 18K white gold case of its new Traditionnelle Moscow Boutique based on two criteria that are rarely associated. While the elegantly slender profile is akin to a classical design, the 41 mm diameter lends it a resolutely contemporary dimension. Finally, the exhibition case-back is fitted with a sapphire crystal providing a chance to admire the ultra-thin self-winding 1120 movement.
Setting the perfect finishing touch to this model, Vacheron Constantin has equipped its new Traditionnelle Moscow Boutique Edition with a slate-grey Mississippiensis alligator strap secured by an 18K white gold pin buckle.
In an ultimate touch of elegance and refinement, the Traditionnelle Moscow Boutique.
