After the Traditionelle Complete Calendar in gold and in platinum as a limited edition, Vacheron Constantin brings us this year a new variant in white gold. If in technical and movement terms it adds nothing, it is in the black-gray dial and the new white gold case that the differences lie.
The contrast between the 18k white gold case and the velvet-finish slate gray dial offers a perfect symbiosis of elegance and description, almost overshadowing the complications it carries with the full (triple) calendar. And if in the other two variants in rose gold and platinum the description is less pronounced by to the clear dials combined with the shine of the cases, in this new variant this does not happen, offering a unique alternative for those looking for sobriety.
The new Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle Complete Calendar comes with a 41 mm 18k white gold case, sapphire glass front and back, brand signature crown at three o’clock, and water resistance to 30 meters.
The velvet-finish slate gray dial offers the same configuration as the other two variants, with a minute railway-track, 18k white gold applied hour indexes and faceted dauphine hands, day aperture at 9 o’clock, month aperture at 3 o’clock, moon-phase indicator at 6 o’clock, date crescent-tipped central hand and applied white gold Maltese cross at 12 o’clock.
Inside operates the Caliber 2460 QCL/1 which offers the complete calendar and precision of the moon phases, which only requires a correction every 122 years. The automatic movement operates at a high frequency of 28,800 Vph and offers up to 40 hours of power reserve. Through the open rear case, it is possible to observe the movement carefully ornamented by hand, where the 22k gold oscillating weight with the traditional skeletonized Maltese cross stands out.
The watch is offered with a black alligator leather strap with an 18k white gold buckle for the same price as the 18k rose gold variant, € 41,900.
