The iconic Malte collection by Vacheron Constantin, distinguished by its tonneau-shaped models, is now enriched with two exceptionally understated models displaying the hours, minutes and small seconds, which for horological purists represents one of the most demanding stylistic exercises.
Certified by the Hallmark of Geneva, those models appear in a 36.7 x 47.6 mm case in either 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold and unveil an elegant slate-colored dial, giving a refined and original alternative to the silver-toned dial currently present in the Malte collection. The hourmarkers and the Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock, the collection’s signature features, are crafted from gold and hug the curves of the tonneau-shaped case.
The celebration in 2012 of this century of history provided the Manufacture with an opportunity to redesign its Malte collection and to enrich it with models featuring pure, refined lines. They have been designed and crafted to accentuate the fact that the form watch continues to hold a place of its own – one of exclusivity, originality and sophistication – within Fine Watchmaking and to pursue its time honoured vocation at Vacheron Constantin.
