Traditionnelle Day-Date and Power Reserve

Little is known about the origins of platinum but it was used in the Pre-Columbian era and officially discovered by the Spanish in the 18th century who named it “little silver” (the literal translation of platina). We now know that it is almost 30 times rarer than gold, has countless qualities (density, malleability, ductility and resistance to corrosion) and symbolises strength and stability. Vacheron Constantin uses this raw material to forge the Traditionelle’s 39.5mm case limited to 100 pieces. Its sandblasted platinum dial has 2 dauphine hands and a slim seconds hand in the centre for the hours, minutes and seconds and displays three counters: the day at 9 o’ clock, the date at 3 o’ clock and power reserve (up to 40 hours) at 6 o’ clock. The figures and minute track are painted black. The functions are brought to life by the self-winding in-house 2475 SC calibre. Price: 85,300 CHF
