Vacheron Constantin unveils six new slate grey dialed Traditionnelle models


Swiss luxury watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has just announced the arrival of six new Traditionnelle watches. Available with beautiful slate grey dials, the new models all feature the collection’s signature characteristics such as the round stepped case, thin bezel, fluted caseback, railway-type minute track, applied baton hour markers, and Dauphine-type hands. Each model is housed in a stylish 18K 5N red gold case and powered by an in-house mechanical movement. The new Traditionnelle models all come on an elegant black alligator leather strap secured with a 18K 5N pink gold folding clasp or buckle.

The most exclusive model is the Traditionnelle calibre 2755. Measuring 44 mm, this watch features three exceptional watchmaking complications: a perpetual calendar, a tourbillon, and a minute repeater with centripetal flying strike governor. In addition to hours, minutes and perpetual calendar functions, the dial also displays small seconds on the tourbillon. The power reserve indicator is placed on the back of the watch. Powering the Traditionnelle calibre 2755 is the manual-winding caliber 2755 QP with 58 hours of power reserve.


The two tourbillon models demonstrate the brand’s remarkable watchmaking expertise



Equally impressive, the Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon (42 mm) also features an open worked tourbillon shaped like a Maltese cross, the brand’s emblem. The dial layout here is slightly simpler, with hours, minutes, small seconds at 6 and power reserve display at 12 o’clock. What makes this watch truly special is its incredible caliber 2260 – a manual-winding movement with power reserve of approximately 336 hours!

Next we have the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle day-date and power reserve. This elegant model is housed in a 39.5 mm case and features hours, minutes, central seconds, date counter at 3 o’clock, day counter at 9, and power reserve indicator at 6 o’clock. Inside the Traditionnelle day-date and power reserve is the caliber 2475 SC. This 264-component self-winding movement beats at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and guarantees a power reserve of 40 hours.


The red gold case goes perfect with the slate grey dial


Another simple and elegant model is the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle (41 mm) with the ultra-thin caliber 1120. Only 2.45 mm thick, this self winding movement oscillates at a somewhat unusual frequency of 2.75 Hz (19,800 vibrations per hour) and offers a power reserve of 40 hours. The watch itself is the simplest of the six new models, displaying only hours and minutes.


The ultra-thin caliber version is the simplest new model


And finally we have the two Traditionnelle models with simple displays. The first version is powered by an automatic caliber (caliber 2455) while the second one features a manual-winding movement (caliber 4400 AS). The two movements both work at the same frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour but feature different power reserves: 40 and 65 hours respectively. Both models have the same 38 mm case with transparent sapphire caseback. Besides the movements, the two watches are also differentiated by their dial layouts. The automatic model displays hours, minutes, small seconds at 9 and date at 3 o’clock. On the other hand, the manual-winding version features hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o’clock.
