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. The dial configuration reflects the wartime and post-war-era Vacheron Constantin split-second chronographs. But the watchmaker did not highlight any specific heritage reference taken as inspiration for the new Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Ultra-Thin Chronograph.
However, you cannot miss catching a glimpse of the Maltese Cross set at 12-hour side above the brand’s logo. While two slender Dauphine hands show the minutes and hours, the two blued-hands determine the split-seconds chronograph.
A split-seconds chronograph is a mechanical complication employed for tracking two different elapsed time. In the new Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Chronograph -
The Vacheron Constantin Calibre 3500 movement make this split-seconds chronograph complication possible, powering the new Traditionnelle Ultra-Thin watch. You can see this highly embellished movement through a sapphire exhibition window on the platinum case-back. However, this automatic movement features a 22ct yellow gold peripheral rotor that is just 5.2mm thick. It has a 48-hour power reserve and about 21,600vph frequency.
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.
