Introducing The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Harrods Edition (Live Pics & Pricing)
It’s a memory just you, my kindred watch nerds will comprehend. I used to watch that early Three On Three episode – the one with the hand-wound Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle (4400 type), Lange Saxonia, and Journe Chronomètre Bleu – on rehash. Frequently on a Saturday night. Alone. I was in my 20s and my buddies never comprehended my fixation (any reasonable person would agree, neither did any sweethearts). In any case, I explicitly review Ben commenting on the way that the Traditionnelle may simply be the Vacheron to possess and it has consistently struck me as a brilliantly exquisite dress watch that over the course of the years has been introduced in various distinctive metal and dial designs. This week, Harrods is introducing a restricted release 20 bits of the Traditionnelle Self-Winding model, and keeping in mind that throughout the long term the retail chain has seen a constant flow of restricted versions from different produces, this dial and lash combo should be commended. It unquestionably doesn’t hurt that green has never been more sultry – you need just do a brisk quest online for a green elastic Aquanaut lash for proof!
The watch is about the 18k gold dial with its complex hand-guilloché design. With an assortment of abilities sitting in-house, Vacheron has a genuine family in métiers d’art and very good quality completing, which come together in this piece. The Traditionnelle is undoubtably stifled, however here the combination of those extremely sharp Dauphine hands and the guilloché dial is wizardry. In a rose, pentagon design, it gives the dial a profundity and interest – a sort of “take a gander at minimal nearer” vibe. The general bundle is pleasantly adjusted, with little seconds at nine o’clock and a date show at three o’clock. The production type 2455 is Geneva Hallmark stepped and has a 40-hour power hold. At 38mm ( isn’t that the sweet spot, Mr. Cho? ), with a breaking dial and green alligator cowhide lash, there isn’t a lot to protest about at all.
