On the occasion of its 260th anniversary, Vacheron Constantin unveiled the Harmony collection at the SIHH 2015. Housed in an unusual cushion-shaped case, Vacheron Constantin is now introducing ten new references equipped with several in-house calibres and developed around the chronograph, tourbillon or dual time complications. Out of these new ten timepieces within the Vacheron Constantin collection, one that stands out and that we absolutely love is the remarkable Harmony complete calendar equipped with an unprecedented in-house movement. Within these new ten Harmony timepieces This year, Vacheron Constantin is introducing ten new references in the range, developed around a tourbillon monopusher chronograph, a monopusher chronograph with pulsimeter scale, a double-pusher chronograph, and a dual-time display. The new Vacheron Constantin Complete Calendar ref. 4000S/000R-B123 in 18K 5N rose gold is powered by a brand new automatic movement calibre 2460 QC with a complete calendar. This new in-house automatic movement composed of 308 parts and 27 jewels, beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph to provide a power reserve of 40 hours.
The classic and elegant design of the cushion-shaped 18K 5N rose gold case measuring 40 mm x 49.3 mm x 11 mm thick, strikes a perfect balance with the optimal readability of the mellow silvered opaline dial with anthracite-colored painted Arabic numerals and painted minute-track and calendar indications in burgundy. Around its rim, the date is indicated by a central hand which culminates in a burgundy crescent. The day and month, in the same deep red, appear through apertures in the upper half of the dial, while the lower half is devoted to displays of the moon phases and the age of the moon. These remarkably precise astronomical indications require adjustment only once every 122 years, instead of every three years for a conventional moon phase. A transparent sapphire crystal case back provides an admirable view of its inner workings and its high-end finishing. The watch is delivered on a dark brown alligator strap that is hand-stitched, saddle-finish and with large square scales. The strap is fastened by a half Maltese cross folding clasp in matching gold.
