Creating a piece exceptional for the most part implies changing tones or materials of the case and dial, or having another shape. That’s the case with practically all the exceptional watches made for Only Watch 2015. With the Maitre Cabinotier Perpetual Calendar Regulator, Vacheron Constantin goes above and beyond (indeed, many above and beyond). With this sort of watch, VC shows its expertise in making restrictive and unique types giving an exceptionally explicit outcome, an appropriate extraordinary watch, with a remarkable complication, interesting development and novel plan. Let’s have a first gander at the Vacheron Constantin Maitre Cabinotier Perpetual Calendar Regulator.

Seeing a grande maison like Vacheron returning to the real underlying foundations of top of the line watchmaking – watches specially made, with remarkable highlights – is very acceptable news. The Vacheron Constantin Perpetual Calendar Regulator watch includes a particular regulator-type time show (which means minutes on the focal hub and the hours in an isolated auxiliary dial). The presentation is roused by 17th century “Master Clocks” that were utilized to change watches around then. These timekeeping instruments filled in as a perspective in the watchmaking workshops and cosmic observatories of the time. Notwithstanding, this particular regulator show isn’t the solitary highlights of this watch, as its novel development, the type 2460 RQP, likewise drives a perpetual calendar with moon-phases.

That’s the motivation behind why the Vacheron Constantin Maitre Cabinotier Perpetual Calendar Regulator shows its perpetual calendar by means of just one sub-dial and 3 windows. At 6 are found the date and the moon-stages and on each side of great importance dial at 12, two attentive windows shows the day of the week and the month. At last, the jump year comes in a little opening, into the hour sub-dial.
The dial shows another mastery of the brand: hand-guillochage. On the Vacheron Constantin Maitre Cabinotier Perpetual Calendar Regulator, it begins with a strong gold plate that is then engraved (motor went to be exact) by hand. This dial is again absolutely exceptional, both in its format (because of the particular development), in its completion and in its tone, a delicate earthy colored opaline. The signs of the hours and minutes are effectively recognizable, with Roman numerals for the hours and Arabic numerals and pink gold “Clous de Paris” applied markers for the minutes. The case is additionally made in 18K pink gold and measures 42mm. Its, old style, shape and exquisite, it’s average of Vacheron Constantin’s production.
Finally, this Vacheron Constantin Maitre Cabinotier Perpetual Calendar Regulator encased an exceptional development – all things considered, truth be told, an interesting module created to fit a current development, the well known programmed Caliber 2460, that is utilized as a base in the Vacheron Constantin Harmony Dual-Time , in the Vacheron Constantin Metiers d’Art ‘Heavenly messenger Watch’ or in Vacheron Constantin Patrimony World Time .
