Traditionelle watches by Vacheron Constantin belong to a supreme collection of timepieces that demonstrate some of the most demanding Geneva Haute Horlogerie traditions. Time-honoured manufacturing methods are the bread and butter of every timepiece created at this company’s Vallee de Joux-based design house. These manufacturing facilities are where designs are first pencil sketched onto paper, before hundreds of hours are committed into developing and conceptualising every aspect of each timepiece. The company create timepieces for both male and female audiences and have been doing so since 1755. It is this prestigious and highly successful reputation that has led to the company’s unwavering success over the years. Authenticity and quality are guaranteed in every watch that graces a wrist.
The Traditionelle collection by Vacheron Constantin is home to timepieces that show technical refinement. Their beautifully developed mechanical movements, complete with exquisite hand-applied decoration, can often be viewed through the back of the case, where a sapphire crystal glass lens acts as the perfect viewing window to observe the watch’s beating heart in motion. Vacheron Constantin are proud of their skills and their talents which can be compared to no other brand within the Swiss watch industry today. A steady hand and a keen eye for detail are among just a few talents required of a craftsman trusted with such an important job. The hand-winding and self-winding movements built into the structure of a Vacheron Constantin watch are the DNA to each timepiece. They must remain protected from so many variable external factors likely to cause damage to their delicate assembly whilst on display, thus the case of any Traditionelle watch is equipped with water resistant capabilities and a tightly-sealed structure that protects from dust, debris, heat and shock amongst other things.
Traditionelle watches also include completely diamond-encrusted timepieces for the glamour-loving lady. One of the most opulent and breath-taking timepieces in all of the company’s manufacture, is the Traditionelle 18ct white gold full diamond set model. It boasts sparkling stones set into the case, the crown, the bezel and the strap itself. Other more understated timepieces are those for the gentlemen, which feature a classic three handed dial with small seconds sub dial to the west of the dial, and a practical date aperture to the east. Others crafted from 18ct rose gold feature complete calendars with a day and month window in line with one another at both lateral ends of the dial, a moon phase display at 6 o’clock and a date ring which occupies the periphery of the dial.
Completed on a mixture of blue, brown, black and grey leather straps, any lady or gent is certain to be able to find the perfect companion to suit all attires, whilst the timeless aesthetics and clean lines of a Traditionelle watch promise to sit nicely alongside a jeans and shirt combo, or a smart office suit for those more formal occasions.
