Vacheron Constantin’s new Traditionnelle Chronograph Perpetual Calendar timepiece celebrates what the watchmaker has to offer in a quintessential package.
The Swiss brand that calls itself “the Maison” displays its elite level of craftsmanship with the watch, giving it an in-house 1142QP caliber to power both the chronograph and perpetual calendar features, and it boasts a 48-hour power reserve. Luxury timepiece fans will appreciate the view of the watch’s hand-wound chronograph and the rest of the movement through the rear sapphire crystal caseback.
Vacheron made the 43-mm wide case out of 950 platinum, instantly giving the timepiece a sense of gravitas with the polished platinum aesthetic. This gleaming case is paired with what car fans would dare to call a “murdered out” dial. The face features three subdials, including one that tells the day of the month and the phase of the moon with a special 22-karat, hand-carved white gold moon, and two small windows for the day and month at the top of the design.
The Swiss brand that dares to call itself “the House” asks $150,000 for the limited edition Traditionnelle Chronograph Perpetual Calendar.
