Introducing: Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Chronograph Ultra-Thin

May 19th, 2021

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.

The Key Features are –

  • This watch is a 15-piece limited-edition timepiece
  • It is entirely crafted of 950 platinum
  • The in-house ultra-thin Calibre 3500 movement powers this watch.

The New Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Chronograph Ultra-Thin

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.

  • With a thickness of only 10.72mm, this new Traditionnelle Split-Seconds chronograph justifies its “Ultra-Thin” name.
  • Moreover, the timepiece comes with crown-set, rectangular pushers on the right side for chronograph functions.
  • What boosts the overall appeal is the contrasting blue alligator leather strap.
  • The bracelet shows silk and platinum stitching and features a platinum buckle in the half-Maltese cross shape.

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.

  • Like the case, the dial is made of platinum and has a sand-blasted finish and polished-black accents on the surface.
  • Furthermore, the dial flaunts two parallel sub-dials at 3 & 9 o’clock, respectively, for 60 elapsed minutes and for the running seconds.
  • There is another sub-dial at 6 o’clock side to indicate the power reserve.

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 Closer Look at The Split-Seconds Chronograph Complication

A split-seconds chronograph is a mechanical complication employed for tracking two different elapsed time. In the new Traditionnelle Split-Seconds Chronograph –

  • Once you press the crown, the split-seconds hand and centre sweep-seconds hand start monitoring the time simultaneously, staying super-imposed.
  • However, when you activate the second pusher at 2 o’clock, the split-seconds hand stops measuring.
  • But the sweep-seconds hand continues functioning, enabling you to record the first interval without stopping the chronograph entirely.

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.
