Swiss luxury watch manufacture Vacheron Constantin updates its Traditionnelle collection by unveiling a 10 piece platinum limited edition version of the famous world time model presented in 2011. Simultaneously displaying 37 of the world’s time zones, this travel watch with a three‐part dial is adorned with a hand‐enamelled gold world map. Depicted in subtly graded shades of blue, the seas and continents composed a miniature work resulting from patient and meticulous craftsmanship and brimming with graphic details and depth effects. A blend of artisanal refinement and perfect technical mastery, the new Traditionnelle world time is distinguished by its user friendliness enhanced by the crown‐operated activation of all functions.
