After having launched a 38 mm-diameter version of Traditionnelle Model in 2013, Vacheron Constantin unveils a sparkling and daintily feminine 33 mm-diameter version entirely paved with several hundred round-cut diamonds. Beneath the sparkling elegance of the snow-set dial beats hand-wound Calibre 1400 bearing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva.
In a spectacular display of working with light, the gem-setter has opted to alternate between two different gem-setting techniques to play on various sparkling and shining effects according to the surfaces to be lit up. The bezel and sides of the 18-carat white gold case are paved with 196 grain-set diamonds, while 394 diamonds shimmer intensely on the dial thanks to the magic of the snow setting.
