Two new models – the Malte Tourbillon and the Malte Small Model – make the latest additions to the prestigious and sophisticated collection.
Since 1912, Vacheron Constantin has played a pioneering role in adopting the iconic tonneau (barrel) shape in watch-making, accentuating the brand’s rich heritage while reinterpreting the traditional shape of pocket watches. Distinguised by harmoniously balanced curves, the Malte collection embodies a fascinating blend of aesthetic restraint and distinctive personality with a range of contemporary variations.
Two new models – the classic Malte Tourbillon with a slate-coloured dial and the feminine Malte Small Model combining the purity of mother-of-pearl with a vivid fuchsia-colored strap – make the latest additions to the prestigious and sophisticated collection.
Malte Tourbillon, 18k 5N pink gold, slate-coloured dial
The only Hallmark of Geneva certified tonneau-shaped tourbillon model, this paragon of Fine Watchmaking features a finely sand-blasted slate-coloured dial punctuated by eleven baton-shaped hour-markers and one Roman numeral made of pink gold. The slightly off-centred position of the hours and minutes hands, as well as the low frequency of the movement – 18,000 vibrations per hour – ensure a fine view of the tourbillon bearing the seconds hand.
Malte Small Model, 18K 5N pink gold, mother-of-pearl dial
Femininity and refinement are the keynotes of the new Malte small model, featuring a slightly domed mother-of-pearl dial graced with slim hands sweeping over ten slender applied pink gold hour-markers. Fitted with discreet lugs and a sapphire crystal caseback that gently embraces even the daintiest wrist, the lines of this model are beautifully enhanced by the bright glow of its shiny fuchsia-colored alligator leather strap.
