Slim and beautiful
It can be seen that although the watch is extremely thin, it has not diminished its due beauty. In order to make the watch fit the slim theme, the traditional watch usually tends to flatten the design of the time-marking part, which lacks fullness and three-dimensionality. However, this watch uses K gold three-dimensional hour scale and three-dimensional ‘bead’ minute scale, making the watch’s dial more ornamental.

The hollowed-out rotor makes the watch movement more ornamental. In particular, the center of the rotor is the icon of Vacheron Constantin’s ‘Maltese Cross’ logo, adding a unique connotation and charm to the watch.
