Watch and Brand News Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon: Pricing & Technical Details SIHH 2018

Vacheron Constantin delivers their first self-winding ultra-thin tourbillon movement with the Traditionnelle Tourbillon.

Traditionnelle Tourbillon

The Traditionnelle collection is a modern expression of the grand Geneva watchmaking tradition. The Traditionnelle Tourbillon features a stepped round case and lugs, with a slender bezel and fluted caseback. On the dial is a railway type minute track accentuated with Dauphine hands and “bâtons de Geneve” hour markers.

This new model is a new milestone in the history of Vacheron Constantin. It has a 41mm 18k 5N pink gold case housing the first self-winding movement developed by Vacheron Constantin.  The movement itself is just 5.65mm thick and boasts an 80 hour power reserve. The bar of the tourbillon carriage is entirely hand-bevelled, which took almost 12 hours of craftsmanship.

This concept launched in 2006 and offers collections issued in limited editions. The Traditionnelle Tourbillon is being released in 950 platinum with the sand blasted dial with the secret “Pt950” inscription between 4 and 5 o’clock.  The dark blue alligator leather strap is hand stitched with 950 platinum and silk threads.
