The stainless steel case has a diameter of 40 mm and is polished by a polishing process and a wire drawing process to highlight the warm metal texture. Seen from the side, the curved lines of the case are elegant and smooth.
One of the most iconic designs of this series is the Maltese cross-shaped lugs. The Maltese cross shape is the iconic design of Vacheron Constantin. The four branches of this iconic design are skillfully used on the lugs and are unique.
The built-in crown echoes the classic 1956 watch. It is engraved with the brand’s Maltese logo, polished, and made of non-slip texture around it.
The box-shaped sapphire crystal on the bezel enhances wear resistance and adds retro appeal to the watch.
The subdivision dial is also another major feature of this series. It is divided into a central area decorated with opalescence and a sunburst outer ring. The 18K white gold three-dimensional hour markers and bar-shaped hands are coated with a luminous coating, making it easy to read the time clearly in the dark.
The two rectangular windows at 12 o’clock show the month and week respectively. The date is indicated by an arrow pointer. The moon phase is at 6 o’clock. The blue night sky is set against a gold moon.
The watch is fitted with a dark blue Mississippi alligator leather strap, accented with tonal stitching, for a modern, elegant gentleman.
The watch is equipped with a 2460 self-winding movement, equipped with a stop-seconds device and a precise moon phase (only needs to be adjusted once every 122 years). Through the transparent case back, you can see the precise design of the movement, as well as the 22K skeleton pendulum with Maltese cross shape, and appreciate the craftsmanship.
Summary: The Vacheron Constantin-Wulf series has gradually been recognized by watch fans since its launch. This year Vacheron Constantin launched a new model on a steel watch, with blue as the main color. From the appearance of the watch to the polishing of the movement, it all revealed its exquisite and delicate watchmaking technology. Reference price: 175,000 (figure / text watch home Wu Fengqi)
