More than 10 new watches from one of the most historically important watch brands in the world...

Vacheron has really brought the heat this year with the introduction of so many new watches, ranging from in their most affordable collection all the way to high complications. Let's explore their new models and see what VC has to say about them.

Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Blue Dial

Pink gold and blue-lacquered offer a perfect combination of casual chic. For the first time, Vacheron Constantin is offering this pleasing association of colours by presenting a new Overseas perpetual calendar with a gold case and bracelet along with a blue dial. A spirited combination that endows this model with a distinctive new personality.

The 41.5 mm-diameter case accommodates a mechanical self-winding movement from a proud lineage, the ultra-thin Manufacture 1120 QP/1 calibre with perpetual calendar and moon-phase display. The latter function involves impressive feats of miniaturisation enabling it to cope with calendar irregularities while eliminating any need for correction until 2100.

Overseas Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin Skeleton

The Overseas collection is enriching its range with a new territory to explore. The prestige of a precious metal case and bracelet is now complemented by the extreme sophistication of an openworked movement that is also ultra-thin and houses a perpetual calendar, giving the timepiece a contemporary and horologically sophisticated look.

Much appreciated by collectors for its reliability, its extreme precision and its performance, selfwinding Calibre 1120 QPSQ is now joining the Overseas collection in a new guise. Entirely openworked, which is a feat in itself, it reveals its mechanical intricacies beneath a sapphire crystal. The transparent caseback also stages a fascinating watchmaking show starring the gear trains and the NAC-treated oscillating weight with its segment in 22K gold, which is also openworked for the first time in the Overseas collection so as to highlight its stylised design shaped like a Maltese cross.

This timepiece pays tribute to mechanical complexity while respecting the Maison’s distinctive aesthetic codes and inherent elegance. “Etagé” case and lugs, a fluted case-back, a railway-type minute track, dauphine-type hours and minutes hands: the aesthetic codes of the Traditionnelle collection are all clearly present and the model Traditionnelle tourbillon chronograph showcases technical refinement conveyed through eminently horological characteristics.

Fiftysix Sepia Brown-Toned Dial

Unveiled in 2018, the Fiftysix® collection audaciously mixes eras.

A look imbued with a vintage touch, interpreted through two pink gold models with a calfskin strap designed for everyday wear.

La Musique du Temps, Les Cabinotiers Astronomical striking grand complication – Ode to music

Displaying a range of indications including civil, solar and sidereal time, as well as combining 19 complications within this minute repeater calibre makes this unique watch a masterpiece of aesthetics and technical horology. Les Cabinotiers Astronomical striking grand complication – Ode to music is a tribute to the grand laws of Nature, which continue to exercise their formidable powers of fascination.

Les Cabinotiers Astronomical striking grand complication – Ode to Music provides a fresh demonstration of Vacheron Constantin's technical mastery in the creation of horological grand complications. As part of the range of exceptional chiming watches named "La Musique du Temps®", this new one-of-a-kind creation is based first and foremost on a minute repeater which determined the construction of the entire movement. The starting point for the work was the famous Manufacture 1731 calibre, due to its extreme thinness. Redesigned to accommodate a range of astronomical functions, the new 1731 M820 calibre is thus equipped with 19 complications, notably displaying civil, solar and sidereal time – each with its own gear train in addition to that of the minute repeater. This technical feat is perfectly in keeping with the spirit of the ultra-thin base movement, since its 600 components are housed in a calibre less than 8 millimetres thick.

“La Musique du Temps” Les Cabinotiers – the singing birds

The extra-thin 1120 AT movement gives free rein to the talents of the master enameller. It provides an off-centred display of the hours on a right-hand dial sector, while leaving space to express the art of champlevé enamel. These four one-of-a-kind creations – showcasing artistic crafts by respectively featuring a hummingbird, a blue jay, a blue tit and a robin – add fresh notes to "La Musique du Temps®", a theme dreamed up by the Maison’s Les Cabinotiers department.

The four one-of-a-kind Les Cabinotiers – the singing birds timepieces pay symbolic tribute to the range named "La Musique du temps®". Artistic crafts play a unique role through the enamelling work done using the champlevé technique on each of the dials. To give life to the bird motifs, the master artisan has broadened his palette to encompass 10 colours and their subtly graded shades. The ultra-thin 1120 AT movement has been chosen for these four watches, since it enables an off-centred display of the time providing broad scope for the master artisan to express his artistry. These four creations depict a hummingbird, a blue jay, a blue tit and a robin, while the right-hand side is adorned with a finely executed guilloché pattern. This area is dedicated to time indications on a 120° sector bearing applied minutes. The satellite hours are thus of the dragging variety, with three hands each carrying a four-digit rotating disk and taking turns along the minutes scale.
