Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle “Catcher of Time”

Vacheron Constantin has introduced a limited edition of pair watches on the NET-A-PORTER flagship store on Tmall Luxury Pavilion in China. They are presented in limited edition of 22 pieces each with individual numbers.

The Traditionnelle “Catcher of Time” timepieces epitomize La Belle Horlogerie by combining technical achievements and the Maison’s craftsmanship unique know-how.  The entire part of the dial is occupied by a hand-guilloché decor picking up the elegant “Clous de Paris” motif. The infinity of the “Clous de Paris” motif forms a space of “web” as a catcher of time. Hand-guilloché, a decorative technique, was used in the Maison’s dial decoration of pocket watches as early as 1780. Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle “Catcher of Time” watches feature round “étagé” case and lugs, slim bezel, fluted case-back, “bâtons de Genève” applied hour-markers, rail-track minute-circle and dauphine-type hands. The two new limited-edition models combine the signatures of the Traditionnelle collection and showcase the technical refinement conveyed through eminently horological characteristics.

Graced with the sized 38 mm-diameter 18K 5N pink gold case, the men’s model features a date window and small seconds at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock with a simple display. The lady’s version of the Traditionnelle “Catcher of Time” features a 36 mm-diameter pink gold case, the 81 round brilliant-cut diamonds (1.15 ct) finely set on the bezel, lugs and crown. The calibre 1410AS, entirely developed and crafted by the Maison, has the precision moon phases, required to be adjusted only once in every 122 years. In addition to the hours, minutes, small seconds and moon phases, the Manufacture movement offers a pointer-type indication of its power reserve at 10 o’clock.

The Traditionnelle “Catcher of Time” Limited Edition timepieces mirror the most demanding Geneva Haute Horlogerie traditions inherited from the 18th century. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
