Vacheron Constantin in 2014 opened a new boutique in Moscow. As is the brand’s tradition when opening a new flagship store, new limited edition watches are being introduced to coincide with it. (For example, Vacheron inaugurated its Paris boutique with a series of very nice pink gold and guilloche-dial watches and with the very stylish 1972 Prestige. For its new Russian store, Vacheron introduced black-dial versions of 4 of its most iconic models.
The boutique, which opened on June 20, 2014, is located in the Russian capital city and offers 352 square meters in which to discover and enjoy the entire Vacheron Constantin watch collection in a very pleasant setting; the space is beautifully appointed in every detail, as is every VC boutique; we at Monochrome Watches can attest to these boutiques’ atmospheres, having been recently inside the Parisian boutique to get some hands-on time with a stunning vintage chronograph.
Vacheron Constantin now presents four limited editions of existing watches, presented in white metals with a black dial – a color combination quite unusual for Vacheron Constantin dress watches, which we are used to seeing in rose gold or yellow gold with bright dials.
The first model we’ll look at is a mighty Traditionnelle Calibre 2253. This Grande Complication watch is equipped with no less than a tourbillon, a 14-day power reserve, a perpetual calendar, an equation of time as well as sunrise and sunset times for the city of Moscow. It comes in a 44-mm platinum case with an onyx black dial. The movement is adorned with the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva (Poinçon de Genève), which is an independent and sovereign guarantee of workmanship. The Calibre 2253 represents the highest level of precision, complexity and finishing for Vacheron Constantin (and, it could be said, for of all the watch industry). Only one very lucky owner will be able to enjoy this beauty: it is a unique edition.
