Vacheron Constantin – Traditionnelle Calibre 2253 Moscow Boutique
Only one piece. For the introduction of the new Moscow Boutique, Vacheron Constantin created an extraordinary restricted release watch outfitted with a tourbillon, an unending schedule, a condition of time just as dawn and dusk times for the city of Moscow: the Traditionnelle Caliber 2253 Moscow Boutique.
Its 44 mm thin case is crafted in 950 platinum and highlights a knurled theme encompassing the screw-down case-back. The “N°1/1” engraving looking into it back comments the uniqueness of this watch.The opaline dark dial of the Traditionnelle Caliber 2253 Moscow Boutique has white gold hour-markers with dauphine hands and painted moment track and signs.
The tourbillon carriage, as consistently looking like a Maltese cross, turns once every moment at 6 o’clock as a little seconds sign. The signs of the interminable schedule are evenly spread out with the days, the months and the dates at 9, 12 and 3 o’clock individually, while the jump year marker shows up at 1 o’clock. The hours of dawn and dusk in Moscow are displayed at 8 o’clock and 4 o’clock.
The short hand showing up somewhere in the range of 10 and 11 o’clock is the condition of time which demonstrates the distinction in minutes between the variable sun oriented time appeared by a sundial and the consistent interim of clocks and watches. Indeed, sunlight based early afternoon, precisely when the sun comes to its zenith, doesn’t for the most part compare to the legitimate standard time appeared by watches. Sun based time and interim harmonize only four times each year – on April 15th, June 14th, September 1st and December 24th. For the remainder of the year, the contrast among sun powered and mean time changes from short 16 minutes to in addition to 16 minutes.
The hand-wound development, Caliber 2253, is comprised of 457 sections and offers an amazing 336 hours, or 14 days, of force save thanks to two sets of two coupled barrels. The force save sign is obvious on the scaffold side through the sapphire precious stone case-back.
There are three more restricted version watches made by Vacheron Constantin for the launch of the new Moscow Boutique: a never-ending schedule, a retrograde day date model and an exquisite independent beat with guilloché dial.
The Patrimony Perpetual Calendar Moscow Boutique model highlights a complex interminable schedule development, the acclaimed Caliber 1120 QP, which won’t need any rectification until March 1st 2100 taking into account each month with under 31 days and the jump year cycle with the quadrennial return of February 29th.
Furnished with a wonderfully completed the process of wavering weight, this self-twisting movement beats at a frequency of 2.75 Hz (19,800 vibrations each hour) and offers a roughly 40-hour power hold.
Just 8.9 mm thick, the 41 mm-breadth white gold case is water-impervious to 30 meters and fitted with a sapphire precious stone back uncovering Caliber 1120 QP.
The opaline dark dial, with mallet hands and trapeze-formed hour-markers, incorporates a lunar circle depicting a brilliant moon set against a lapis lazuli sky. 30 bits of the Patrimony Perpetual Calendar Moscow Boutique will be created.
The Patrimony Retrograde Day-Date Moscow Boutique will be accessible in 20 pieces. For this model, Vacheron Constantin adopted the 283-section Caliber 2460R31R7 – a self-winding development driving the hours and minutes just as retrograde date and day of the week capacities. Beating at the cadence of 28,800 vibrations each hour, Caliber 2460R31R7 features a more than 40-hour power reserve.
The 42.5 mm white gold case outlines an opaline dark dial reprising all the plan codes normal for the Patrimony line, which means stick hands, four three-sided hour-markers and 8 cudgel hour-markers bended to follow the form of cambered dial, just as a beaded moment track composed of applied gold cabochons.
At long last, we have the Traditionnelle Moscow Boutique Edition, an exemplary solo-beat in a 41 mm white gold case ensuring a finely hand-guilloché record dark dial. This 30-piece restricted release is controlled by oneself winding Caliber 1120 which beats at 18,800 vibrations each hour and offers 40 hours of force save.
The nature of every one of these watches is affirmed by the Hallmark of Geneva, which ensures their provenance as well as assembling and completing measures, exactness and impeccable nature of the components. As the last touch, they are conveyed with a couple of white gold sleeve buttons matchings their dials.
