On the event of the 260th commemoration of its establishing, the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin reveals the primary models of an altogether new collection called Harmony. Given in restricted releases, these both contemporary and vintage-roused watches highlight another pad shape and a plan motivated by one of the brand’s first wristwatch chronographs presented in 1928. New in-house developments, new plan, intriguing complications: if it’s not too much trouble, welcome the Vacheron Constantin Harmony collection.
Seven new watches (counting 2 women watches), beginning from a fairly straightforward double time watch to an incredibly complicated ultra-thin split-second chronograph… Vacheron-Constantin isn’t simply introducing another model, it’s a whole collection, basically centered around chronographs and coming with a solitary plan and very good quality developments, all grew particularly for this new reach. Obviously, Vacheron Constantin needs to satisfy authorities for its 260th anniversary.
The configuration is charming and present day, regardless of whether propelled from an old fashioned watch. It shows a bended case center, a square bezel and a round watch glass meet in an exquisite reevaluation of the monopusher chronograph with pulsometric scale introduced by the Manufacture in 1928. The dials are likewise enlivened by these classical chronographs and comes with differentiating scales and bi-compax formats (two sub-counters).
Finishings are likewise incredibly fascinating on the 4 new developments: all are coming with hand-made etchings – on the cockerel connect or the rotor – and all are decorated with the lofty Hallmark of Geneva. The Harmony collection successfully mixes custom of Haute Horlogerie with innovation of the specialized arrangements and a genuinely roused design.
The lead model of the new collection, introduced in a 10-piece restricted, numbered release: the new Vacheron Constantin Harmony Ultra-Thin Grande Complication Chronograph quickly positively influences the field of ultra-thin horology by setting another world record with its self-winding development estimating simply 5.20 mm thick and its 8.40 mm pad formed case.
What we are discussing here is an unadulterated gala for gatherers and Haute Horlogerie darlings. The development combines a programmed twisting with fringe rotor – an uncommon complication that clarifies this exceptionally thin development, as the rotor isn’t situated on the highest point of the development however around it, consequently saving at any rate 2mm/ 3mm, similar to the Breguet Classique Tourbillon Extra-Thin Automatic 5377 or the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore Selfwinding Tourbillon Chronograph – a split-second monopusher chronograph (activate by 2 section wheels), a sum of 459 sections, all hand-completed, a bi-compax design and a force hold pointer together in an incredibly compact calibre.
This caliber profits by the various progressed highlights planned by the Manufacture’s advancement group, including the supposed “grinding” method for the sidelong coupling grasp, which serves to decrease a possible jerk of the hand when the chronograph begins running. Another especially eminent advancement is the impeding of the rotor when the barrel is adequately twisted, accordingly dodging over the top pressure in the winding spring. moreover, the development isn’t just in fact progressed yet in addition very delightful to take a gander at, with an amazing format, as none of the components are covered up by the rotor.
The Vacheron Constantin Harmony Ultra-Thin Grande Complication Chronograph comes in a 950 Platinum case measuring 42mm x 52 mm and 8.4 mm thick. The dial shows a decent difference between the white opaline base, the blue Arabic numerals (coordinating the tie) and the red tachymeter scale.
Powered by the new hand-winding Vacheron Constantin Caliber 3200, the Vacheron Constantin Harmony Tourbillon Chronograph combines the class of the monopusher chronograph with the esteem of a dazzling tourbillon formed like the Maltese Cross, this excellent new model is given in a profoundly elite arrangement of 26 independently numbered watches, housed in a valuable 950 platinum case.
Vacheron Constantin Caliber 3200 highlights a scaffold hand-engraved with fragile looking over examples.

Endowed with a 65-hour power hold, this mechanical hand-winding complication development is composed of 292 sections, all hand-enhanced, as the Hallmark of Geneva can attest.
The case measures 42 mm x 52 mm and 12.81 mm thick. It comes with a white opaline dial, with Arabic numerals.
Not that different versions are not alluring – obviously a ultra-thin split-second chrono is a genuine delight – yet this Vacheron Constantin Harmony Chronograph Caliber 3300 ought to be viewed as the most objective, wearable and more pleasant choice. As a matter of first importance, it disposes of the extremely pleasant yet old Caliber 1141 , in view of a Lemania development. All things considered, it comes with a completely new monopusher development (we love monopushers here at Monochrome-Watches), the caliber 3300. Endowed with a 65-hour power save, this monopusher chronograph development receives the exemplary design of the new chronograph developments introduced by the Manufacture to stamp its 260th commemoration, while profiting by present day creation technologies.

In recognition for the 1928 model and to verifiable clinical watches, it bears a pulsometric graduation painted in dark red around the edge of the dial and expected to compute the beat on a 30-beat scale.
The case is made of 18K 5N pink gold and measures conveyed with an earthy colored croc lash. The Vacheron Constantin Harmony Chronograph Caliber 3300 is restricted to 260 pieces.
The littlest, generally reasonable and most straightforward version of the Vacheron Constantin harmony collection shouldn’t be viewed as the ugly duckling. It is the lone version not to bear a chronograph work. Rather it comes with some of the most useful signs: a subsequent time-region and an evening and-day marker. Caliber 2460DT incorporates a safe and useful innovation, as all settings might be finished by the crown in the two ways, with no danger of harming the component. This caliber comprises a unique stop seconds gadget guaranteeing a more exact time display.
