Vacheron Constantin - Malte Tourbillon Openworked

| No comment
Vacheron Constantin adopted the unusual tonneau (barrel) case design in 1912, a bold move in a period dominated by round watches dominated the market. Over the years, this emblematic shape contributed to define the unique aesthetic heritage of the brand.

A precious creation is now joining this collection, the Malte Tourbillon Openworked. This model is a true piece of art , in every sense of the word.



The curved 38 x 48.24 mm pink gold case perfectly moulding the shape of the wrist frames an entirely openworked and hand-engraved barrel-shaped tourbillon movement.


Alternating shadow and light effects enable the Vacheron Constantin Caliber 2790 SQ to reveal an original architectural decor playing with geometrical shapes.


The stylistic inspiration behind these works is characterised by subtle light patterns created by a pyramid of chiaroscuro contrasts based on the repetitive use of fundamental geometrical elements. The resulting entirely hand-engraved three-dimensional mosaic is enhanced by an imposing Maltese cross-shaped tourbillon.


Around 540 hours of patient and meticulous workmanship, from the development of the caliber to the manual finishing of each of its 246 components, are required to achieve the balance between a tourbillon mechanism and the aery openworked aesthetic.

Coated in pink gold, this exceptional mechanism powering indications of the hours, minutes, seconds, date and power reserve, appears through a transparent sapphire dial rimmed by a silver-toned ring and punctuated by 11 baton-type hour-markers as well as an applied Roman (XII) numeral in pink gold.


The movement beats at a frequency of 2.5 Hz (18,000 vibrations per hour) with a power reserve of approximately 45 hours.

The precious timepiece is secured to the wrist by an elegant alligator leather brown strap secured by a half Maltese cross-shaped folding clasp.

Bearing the Hallmark of Geneva which certifies the highest quality standards, the Vacheron Constantin Malte Tourbillon Openworked (ref. 30135/000R-8973) has a price of Euro 215,400. vacheron-constantin.com
