Marina Milojević | 10.06.17 | 05:10 PM

The house of Vacheron Constantin introduces the new Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 and the Triple Calendreir 1948, two vintage-looking timepieces reviving an emblematic complication from the 1940’s. With these new additions to the Historiques range, Vacheron Constantin is highlighting its savoir-faire in creating practical complications.

Vacheron Constantin Historiques Triple Calendrier 1942 / 1948

The design codes of four new timepieces reflect those of two original watches from 1942 and 1948, but with a subtle, modern day twist. The collection includes a steel triple calendar timepiece and another 18K 4N pink gold triple calendar with moon phase, each measuring 40mm in diameter, featuring a number of Maison’s character traits typical of the era, such as “triple gadroon” case band bearing “claw-type” lugs.

The generous cases are topped by slender bezels and a box-type crystal glass, allowing for about 30 meters of water resistance. The see-through case-back reveals the new complete calendar caliber, in two of its interpretations: 4400 QC and 4400 QCL for the moon-phase version. The mechanical manual-winding movements are entirely crafted in-house, they beat at a frequency of 4Hz, providing for about 65 hours of power reserve.
