Pre-SIHH 2014: Introducing the Vacheron Constantin Malte Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine (with specs and price)

Vacheron Constantin has just taken the covers off the first watch in its SIHH 2014 line-up, the Malte Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine, featuring a platinum case and dial.

A few months ago Vacheron Constantin announced the Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine. Joining that in the Collection Excellence Platine is the Malte Tourbillon. The new Malte Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine has all the hallmarks of the Collection Excellence Platine, namely the case, dial, buckle and even strap stitching are all made of 950 platinum.

Measuring 38 mm by 48.24 mm, and standing 12.73 mm high, the platinum case is sufficiently substantial but still elegant in form and size. Like the case, the dial is platinum and finished with a subtle grained texture found on the other Collection Excellence Platine timepieces. Made from a thin disc of platinum and hallmarked “Pt 950” in between four and five o’clock.

The form cal. 2795 has a power reserve of 45 hours and is made in-house by Vacheron Constantin. Finished beautifully, the movement bears the Geneva Seal.

The Malte Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine is limited to 50 pieces and priced at €170,000 (~US$230,000). – SJX
