Each year, Vacheron Constantin’s presence at Watches and Wonders in Geneva is based on a specific theme that embodies the spirit of the brand. After Classic with a Twist, in 2021, and The Anatomy of Beauty, in 2022, Less’ential symbolizes this year’s new releases, having also influenced the architecture of the stand at the Swiss event.
Guided by this principle, the Maison expresses an approach in which technical mastery and the originality of craftsmanship constitute the essence of watchmaking, and where harmoniously balanced shapes and refined design constitute an aesthetic priority in total dedication to technical sophistication. Here, simplicity becomes refinement, understatement focuses on artistic savvy, and fluid design highlights meticulous attention to detail. This form of laid-back elegance that characterizes Vacheron Constantin watchmaking is translated into watches whose mechanical complexity is irrevocably devoted to beauty, in homage to the foundations of haute horlogerie.
All Maison’s creations reflect this constant search, which is the very essence of watchmaking art, according to Vacheron Constantin. Astute observers could spot the perfect staging of grand complications built into the unique Les Cabinotiers watches; the subtle effects of light playing on the finishes of an Overseas watch; the tension present in the curves of a Patrimony model. Thus, the new releases once again present mechanical perfection, enhanced by creative inspiration combined with highly refined capabilities.
Several of the watches now presented have a common denominator – a retrograde function display, which is interpreted in the Overseas, Patrimony, and Traditionnelle collections and is at the heart of the unique Les Cabinotiers Dual Moon Grand Complication creation. Dating back to the early 20th century, this aesthetic signature of the Maison symbolizes its mastery of design. The other releases that make up the Overseas collection follow the same principle of elegance resulting from the magic of shapes.
New releases 2023:
Vacheron Constantin Overseas Self Winding
Smaller diameters result in slimmer, more ergonomic models with a more stylized look. This reduction in the size of the watches corresponds to an aesthetic trend dictated by more classic canons, with an offer that allows the pieces to be suitable for both men’s and women’s wrists.
Vacheron Constantin Overseas Moon Phase Retrograde Date
For the first time in history, the Overseas range incorporates a retrograde display, a feature that is part of Vacheron Constantin’s living heritage and is constantly being reinvented.
Vacheron Constantin Les Cabinotiers Dual Moon Grand-Complication
A one-of-a-kind edition watch with a double dial, the new caliber 2755 TMRCCQP, and a hand-loaded movement with eleven haute horlogerie complications, including a minute repeater, perpetual calendar, precision moon phases, and celestial chart. A watch of extraordinary complexity, whose unique dial stands out for its double central visualization of the phases of the Moon.
Vacheron Constantin High Watchmaking Retrograde
Retrograde indications, which appeared in the 18th century, sometimes accompanied by jumping indications, represent a technical difficulty that requires extreme precision. At Vacheron Constantin, jumping indications had already appeared on pocket watches in 1824 and were introduced on wristwatches with a retrograde indication a century later. These watchmaking complications have become a Maison signature and form part of the company’s current collections.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon Retrograde Date
A model born from a combination of contemporary design and the richness of Vacheron Constantin’s watchmaking heritage. Respect for tradition, immaculate workmanship, and an open dial is the tangible manifestation of constantly renewed creative expertise. It features caliber 2162 R31, a self-loading manufacture movement that combines a tourbillon with a retrograde date indication on an open dial.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Retrograde Day Date
A minimalist design inspired by special retrograde indications from the 1920s and 1930s. Subtlety, harmony, and elegance, enhanced by the association between the platinum of the case and the salmon-pink tone of the dial, a distinctive feature of the House. It features caliber 2460 R31R7/3, a manufacturing movement in the best traditions of haute horlogerie.
