Vacheron Constantin adds the Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Chronograph Ultra-Thin as a 2021 novelty this year to its ultra-exclusive Excellence Platine collection. Almost all parts of this watch are crafted of platinum. And it houses a movement that is a modern interpretation of the classic Rattrapante movement. However, the brand made several enhancements to the movement, including a peripheral winding rotor.
Being a part of the brand’s Traditionelle family, this Traditionelle Split-Seconds Chronograph Ultra-Thin flaunts a more classical design style. The watch manifests Vacheron Constantin’s innovative spirit, backed by an identity that commemorates heritage and delivers the unexpected.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Chronograph Ultra-Thin watch is made up of 950 Platinum and comes in a 42.5mm case. The watch flaunts a mirror-grade polishing and sharp edges on curled lugs with a flat platinum bezel on it.
However, the dial exhibits a traditional-styled chronograph layout and a sapphire crystal topping it.

Overall, the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Ultra-Thin Chronograph is an exclusive part of the Collection Excellence Platine. This collection consists of watches crafted entirely of 950 Platinum, including case, bezel, dial and buckle.
