Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon Three Questions Two Major Attractive Complex Functions Are Integrated Into An Original Movement

• The new Vacheron Constantin 2755 TMR movement is equipped with two major horological complications: minute repeater and tourbillon
• Original appearance decorated with unique hand-carved carved patterns
• Geneva Seal Certification

   As a pre-heating model of the 2017 SIHH, Vacheron Constantin’s new Traditionnelle line-up tourbillon three-question is amazing. This exquisitely crafted timepiece follows the supreme 18th century watchmaking art, adding another masterpiece to the Traditionnelle lineup. The 2755 TMR movement, developed and manufactured by the brand itself, combines the two major timepiece complications of the minute repeater and tourbillon. This luxurious timepiece is available in pink and platinum. This Traditionnelle series tourbillon tourniquet is awarded with the distinguished Geneva mark certification, which not only shows the high level of craftsmanship, but also has unparalleled reliability.
   Like every Vacheron Constantin timepiece, the Traditionnelle Heritage Tourbillon Minutes perfectly blends superb craftsmanship and aesthetic essence, witnessing the long watchmaking history of this brand that has been continuously produced since its foundation in 1755. The new movement introduced this time was developed and manufactured by the brand itself, with two major complex functions. The sophisticated tourbillon can offset the influence of gravity on the timepiece, thereby improving the accuracy of travel time. The minute repeater function is a symbol of the highest watchmaking art, and it is also one of the most highly regarded complex functions. Press the slider lightly, and the gong of the time signal device will sound the corresponding hour, moment and minute. This feature not only requires the watchmaker to master this complex technique, but also has a keen hearing so that the timepiece gong can be adjusted like a calibrated instrument. Vacheron Constantin successfully overcomes the technical difficulties and combines these two complex functions in the same movement to pay tribute to the superb traditional watchmaking skills handed down from generation to generation.

 

Dial with unique machine-engraved pattern
   Traditionnelle series tourbillon three questions show the brand’s professional skills in the field of creating excellent timepieces, playing a harmonious rhyme that echoes the superb skills and aesthetic taste. The platinum version is equipped with dark rock gray or silver milky white dials; the pink gold model is paired with silver milky white dials. The dial is decorated with exquisite hand-machine engraved patterns limited to the models available at Vacheron Constantin stores. This unique pattern not only reflects the brand’s creativity, but also demonstrates its superb machine-engraving skills-a traditional watchmaking technique that originated in the 18th century.
   The pink and platinum models are paired with pink or platinum hour and minute hands, respectively, and are offset from the upper part of the dial to reserve space for the tourbillon device in the lower half. At 6 o’clock, you can see the elegant dance of the tourbillon. The low frequency of 2.5 Hz, which is used in traditional watchmaking, adds unique charm, which can fully show the beauty of the tourbillon’s rhythm. The tourbillon frame uses Vacheron Constantin’s iconic Maltese cross shape and a hand-polished tourbillon bridge. This part alone requires elaborate production of about 11 hours.

 

An original 2755 TMR homemade movement
   Traditionnelle Tourbillon Minute Repeater is equipped with a new 2755 TMR movement developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. This hand-wound calibre is engraved with the Geneva mark, embodying the highest level of precision timepieces and aesthetic design. Combined with the on-demand minute repeater function and the tourbillon, it also has the hour, minute, and small seconds display on the tourbillon frame. The 58-hour power reserve indicator-paired with pink gold hands with a traditional black oxidation treatment-is specially loaded on the back of the case rather than the front of the dial. Through the transparent sapphire case back, you can admire the movement consisting of 471 parts and 40 gems, as well as the hand-decorated polishing process that meets the most stringent watchmaking standards.
   The Traditionnelle series tourbillon three-question is only available at Vacheron Constantin stores and is equipped with a ‘Sound of Time’ resonator to enhance the effect of the three-question timekeeping device and resonance.
