Vacheron Constantin has created four specials models with dark dials, including a one-of-a-kind Traditionnelle Calibre 2253 tourbillon with perpetual calendar in platinum, for the opening of its boutique in Moscow.
Vacheron Constantin has just unveiled four limited edition timepieces to mark the opening of its first boutique in Moscow, located at Berlin House. All are in white gold or platinum, ranging from the time-only Traditionelle Moscow Boutique to the unique Calibre 2253. In contrast to the regular production versions which typically have light coloured dials, these Moscow Boutique editions have black or dark grey dials. And they are further distinguished by a pair of white gold cufflinks with a finish that matches the dial that accompanies each watch. The top of the line model in the Moscow Boutique series is the Traditionelle Calibre 2253, featuring a tourbillon, perpetual calendar, equation of time display and also the sunrise and sunset times for Moscow. Limited to just one piece, this has a 44 mm platinum case and a black opaline dial. Like all the other watches in the series, this is delivered with a pair of white gold cufflinks with onyx inserts to match the dial.
Limited to 30 pieces, the Patrimony Perpetual Calendar Moscow Boutique has a 41 mm white gold case with a black dial. Inside is the self-winding calibre 1120, based on the highly regarded ultra-thin movement first developed by Jaeger-LeCoultre.
Similar in style is the Patrimony retrograde day-date Moscow Boutique, also in white gold with a black opaline dial. This, however, is limited to only 20 pieces. Inside is the in-house calibre 2460 automatic.
And the simplest timepiece of the series is notable for being the most different from the rest of the series. Also in white gold, the Traditionelle Moscow Boutique has a dark grey dial decorated with guilloche inspired by the facade of the Kremlin. The accompanying cufflinks have a similarly decorated slate-coloured insert. This is limited to 30 pieces. The movement is the same calibre 1120 found in the Moscow Boutique perpetual calendar.
Pricing for each Moscow Boutique edition will be similar to the regular production versions of each model.Back to top.
