Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has introduced a new addition to its Platine Excellence wristwatch collection.
The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Collection Excellence Platine fits right into the luxe lineup. It’s a beautiful platinum model with a number of special features. But the use of platinum is the focus.
The Geneva-based manufacturer emphasized the precious metal in the design, and on the dial, with a “Pt950” signature set at 4:30 so wearers never forget that their case and dial are crafted from 95 percent platinum.
Even though the new example boasts a full calendar dial, the design is clean and uncluttered, with legible markers, and the considerable appeal of the understated. Other features include a railroad-style minute track circling the dial, bi-faceted hands and hour markers, and a moon phase indicator at 6 o’clock.
The 41mm case was designed for comfort, but it’s also water resistant to 98 feet. In addition, Vacheron Constantin’s new timepiece boasts a Calibre 2460 QCL movement with 40 hours of power reserve that is visible via the sapphire exhibition caseback.
The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Collection Excellence Platine watch is available for $68,500.
