This year, Vacheron Constantin is revisiting one of its most iconic models: the Traditionnelle chronograph perpetual calendar. Equipped with the new Manufacture Caliber 1142 QP, this timepiece perpetuates the tradition of excellence cultivated by the finest Geneva watchmakers. With this new creation appearing in a 950 platinum and 18K 5N pink gold versions, Vacheron Constantin has opted to combine two key Fine Watchmaking complications: the chronograph and the perpetual calendar.
The new movement drives the perpetual calendar functions – with indications of the days, date, 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 newcomer to the Traditionnelle collection will thus be able to keep track of all the vagaries of the calendar without any need for adjustments until March 1st 2100.
Unveiled at SIHH 2017, the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle chronograph perpetual calendar is fitted with a hand-stitched Mississippiensis alligator leather strap secured by a 950 platinum or 18K 5N pink gold folding clasp.
