New Combination For Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 

New Combination For Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph 

Vacheron Constantin presents a new signature timepiece, Traditionnelle perpetual calendar chronograph, combining a platinum case with a salmon-coloured dial. 

This harmonious platinum and salmon colour combination is an integral part of the Maison’s heritage, perfectly embodied in some of its historic models. It will henceforth be reserved for watches produced in limited annual quantities. As its name suggests, this watch embodies traditional watchmaking codes, notably including Dauphine-type hands, a railway-type minutes track and a stepped case with distinctive fluting on the back. 

To drive the functions of this watch, the case is equipped with manual-winding Calibre 1142 QP. This chronograph movement, complemented by a perpetual calendar, is one of the most highly prized historical calibres among collectors. It dates back to the 1940s and is notably distinguished by the sophisticated aesthetics of its architecture as well as by its reliability and precision enhanced by its column-wheel system. This 324-component movement in its perpetual calendar version has been adapted over the decades, particularly to meet Hallmark of Geneva criteria, while its rate frequency has been modified to 3 Hz (21,600 vph) and its power reserve amounts to 48 hours. 

Vacheron Constantin is offering a new version of its Traditionnelle perpetual calendar chronograph model, equipped with the in-house manual-winding Calibre 1142 QP, one of the most prestigious chronograph movements enhanced by the perpetual calendar complication. Featuring an exclusive new classically-inspired aesthetic signature in the form of a salmon-coloured dial and platinum case, this model will be produced in limited quantities available exclusively from Vacheron Constantin boutiques.
