TRADITION GOES GREEN
As the year draws to a close, the Manufacture unveils a pair of rose gold watches, powered by hand-wound calibers and awarded the Poinçon de Genève hallmark, whose faces sport a beautiful radiant green.
In the northern hemisphere, chilly nature has just donned an autumn coat of warm yellows, oranges and reds, before the first snows fall in a few weeks’ time, while Vacheron Constantin is inviting spring into its most timeless collection. The Geneva-based manufacture has chosen a beautiful green, symbol of hope and luck, to dress a pair of Traditionnelle manual-winding timepieces.
Olive, khaki, sage, sometimes emerald: the color awakens, radiant, under the caress of rose gold, offering different tones according to the light. This precious metal with its coppery reflections makes up the cases of this Poinçon de Genève-approved pair, offered in two sizes, 38mm in diameter and 33mm, whose bezel is lined with a dazzling ribbon of 54 brilliant-cut diamonds. Each houses its own 4hz hand-wound movement: the caliber 4400 AS delivers 65 hours of power reserve for one, the caliber 1440 42 for the other. Delimited by a fine white minute track, the watch dials indicate time by means of dauphine-shaped gold hands hovering over applied hour-markers, with seconds displayed in a counter at 6 o’clock or in the center, depending on the model. Its intensely verdant hue spreads across the square-scaled alligator leather strands of the bracelets, which are finished off with rose gold pin buckles.
