Since it was first launched in 2006, each new work in the ‘Limited Platinum Collection’ has exhibited unique and distinguished qualities. In creating this exclusive watch collection, Vacheron Constantin strives to highlight the extraordinary quality of platinum. Vacheron Constantin’s use of platinum dates back to 1820, and since then has used this precious metal in a variety of works. Unlike 18K gold, which is only 75% pure, platinum has a purity of 95%, and is produced in only a few places around the world. The purity and rarity of platinum make it the top material for making high-end watches. Platinum’s higher weight and density make it far more durable than other metals. Platinum is timeless, superior in performance and sturdy. It has a lasting charm for advanced connoisseurs and collectors.
Each watch of Vacheron Constantin’s ‘Limited Platinum Collection’ has its own product number, paying tribute to this most noble metal. Except for the use of 950 platinum for the case and crown, the dial of each watch in this series is sandblasted and engraved with the ‘PT950’ mark between 4 and 5 o’clock. The watch also features a 950 platinum folding clasp with a dark blue crocodile leather strap, which is hand-stitched with 950 platinum threads using a saddle stitching process. Each watch has a separate product number and is limited to no more than 150 pieces. Two of the latest masterpieces in the collection, the “Traditionnelle Weekly Calendar Power Reserve” and “Traditionnelle World Time”, continue to follow this principle, with a limited edition of 100 watches each. The two latest watches continue the timeless and iconic design of the platinum series: the 950 platinum case, crown, dial and buckle. Both new products belong to the Traditionnelle series and are equipped with practical and complicated functions, inheriting Vacheron Constantin’s rich tradition of excellence in watchmaking, and further improving the ‘intermediate complication’ watch series.
