Vacheron Constantin launches a brand new, revisited version of its iconic Traditionnelle chronograph perpetual calendar. Dressed in a precious platinum case and equipped with the new Manufacture Vacheron Constantin Caliber 1142 QP, this Hallmark of Geneva certified timepiece combines two key Fine Watchmaking complications: the chronograph and the perpetual calendar.
Caliber 1142 QP, a state-of-the art movement entirely designed and developed within the Manufacture, replaces the previous 1141 QP. Visible through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback, the new movement drives the perpetual calendar functions – with indications of the date, days, months, leap years and moon phases – as well as the chronograph functions with a direct-drive seconds hands and 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, positioned opposite the small seconds at 9 o’clock. This movement does not need any adjustments until March 1st 2100.
