Vacheron Constantin has released quite a few pretty significant watches this year such as their Overseas Limited-Edition watches which you can read about here. When it comes to this particular line of watches it was first in 2018 where they released a Traditionnelle Complete Calendar in platinum, and then later followed up with pink gold. Now in 2021, they have released their Traditionnelle Complete Calendar in 18K white gold.
This incredible watch is powered by the Calibre 2460 QCL automatic movement that has a power reserve of 40 hours and is made out of 308 individual parts. The movement can be seen through the sapphire case back of the watch that proudly shows off a 22-karat gold oscillating weight that also features the cross emblem of Vacheron Constantin. It features a day window, month window, and hour and minute function as well as an accurate moonphase and the date has a dedicated pointer which is located around the dial. One thing to note about the moonphase is that it only requires one adjustment every 122 years.
This watch comes in a case made out of 18K white gold with a case size of 41mm and is only 10.72mm thick. The dial has a velvet-finish slate in grey and features dauphine-style hands. One thing to note that even the watch strap’s pin buckle is made out of white gold. Unlike the platinum version however, this watch will not feature a deployant buckle but instead will feature an ardillon buckle made out of white gold. The strap itself is made out of Mississippiensis alligator in black with a lug width of 21mm and a buckle width of 18mm. This watch is also water resistant to 30m therefore it is best to keep it completely away from water just to be safe.
Vacheron Constantin has had a big year in terms of their watch releases and it has always been met with great feedback from fans and collectors alike. No one really doubts Vacheron Constantin when it comes to their watch releases, however it is nice that they are releasing a healthy mix between sport style watches and more classic dress style watches. The watch is available through Vacheron Constantin for a price of $41,300 and is not a limited edition watch, therefore everyone should get the chance to at least have a look at the watch and that excellent movement.
