The new one-of-a-kind Maître Cabinotier Perpetual Calendar Regulator from Vacheron Constantin is distinguished by its regulator type display, inspired by the precision clocks used to adjust watches from the 17th century onwards. In addition to the dissociated display of the hours and minutes, the self winding 2460 RQP in house movement specially designed for this model also drives the perpetual calendar complication. An elegant hand-guilloché dial with meticulous finishing accentuates the exclusive nature of this watch certified by the Hallmark of Geneva, crafted in keeping with the spirit of the 18th century Geneva cabinotiers.
Created in a one-off edition, this prestigious timepiece carries the tradition of technical excellence and innovation cultivated by the 18th century cabinotiers. These highly specialised Geneva artisans created authentic made-to-order masterpieces intended for prestigious customers from around the world. In harmony with this blend of horological prowess and extreme personalisation, the art perpetuated through the Maître Cabinotier Collection by Vacheron Constantin is reflected in the highly exclusive production of its “Atelier Cabinotiers” which creates bespoke Haute Horlogerie watches.
Complementing the regulator-type display of the hours and minutes, the perpetual calendar and the moon phases appear on a snailed counter at 6 o’clock, while the pink gold moon and silver dust stars are sprinkled across this gently spiralling finish. The pink gold-rimmed day of the week and month apertures appear on either side of the offset hours counter at 12 o’clock. The various types of finish – guilloché, opaline, snailed and circular satin-finished – along with the alternating presence of applied hour-markers, Roman and Arabic numerals, combine to ensure excellent readability of each separate indication. This distinctively designed dial frames a 42 mm-diameter pink gold case that is water-resistant to 30 metres and topped by a concave bezel that accentuates the overall impression of slenderness.
The timepiece is accompanied with an alligator Mississippiensis leather strap in a shade echoing that of the brown dial. Hand-sewn and featuring large square scales, it is fastened by a triple-blade pink gold folding clasp adorned with a polished half Maltese Cross.
