Vacheron Constantin Malte Limited Tourbillon Platinum Collection

Pure, rare and long-lasting platinum is the finest material in the field of fine watchmaking. To commemorate this innate perfect combination of precision machinery and precious materials, Vacheron Constantin launched a limited edition platinum collection in 2006, designed for collectors of high-end watches. Today, the pink gold Malte tourbillon created in 2012 also joins this extraordinary collection.

  For a long time, Vacheron Constantin has demonstrated its professionalism in the field of tourbillon movements. This Geneva-based watchmaker often combines the tourbillon with another complex function, embodying superb expertise and unquestionable innovation courage. It is with this spirit that Vacheron Constantin created the new Malte tourbillon limited platinum collection series, and once again interpreted the extraordinary tourbillon machinery.
  The neat 950 platinum dial is sandblasted, and the fine ‘PT950’ stamp is engraved between 4 and 5 o’clock, with platinum Roman numerals and hour markers. The tourbillon with the second hand is in the right position and blends perfectly with the exquisite lines of the Malte series. The tourbillon is located at 6 o’clock, and the hour and minute hands are slightly off-centered, so it stands out on the dial.
  The case of the Malte Tourbillon Limited Platinum Collection is made of 950 platinum and measures 38×48.24 mm. The dark blue Mississippi crocodile leather strap fixed with the 950 platinum folding buckle uses a riding stitching process, and the hand-stitched 950 platinum silk thread exudes a flawless and charming luster. This watch is issued in a limited edition of 50 pieces under a separate product number.
  An excellent watch naturally should be equipped with an equally outstanding movement. This watch is equipped with 2795 mechanical manual winding movement composed of 169 parts, power reserve is about 2 days.
  This barrel-shaped movement fits perfectly into the curve of the case and is entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. The tourbillon frame is inspired by the brand’s ‘Malta Cross’ emblem, which subtly shows the superb craftsmanship of each movement component, including a large number of hand-cut internal corners. In order to meet the process standards set by Vacheron Constantin, it only took 12 hours to manually polish the tourbillon bridge. This technique is called berçage in French. It is mainly to file both ends of the bridge into a regular conical and semi-cylindrical shape, while avoiding the center and side ends. In the final operation steps, the watchmaker smoothes the edges with stone, polishing wheels, wooden nails and special abrasives, and strives to present a perfect polishing effect.
  In addition, the Malte tourbillon limited platinum collection also meets the strict standards of the ‘Mark of Geneva’. The ‘Mark of Geneva’ was founded in 1886 by the Swiss Federal Government and the Grand Legislative Assembly of the City of Geneva. It is a guarantee of origin, quality craftsmanship, durability and watch expertise. This quality guarantee no longer applies only to the movement, but to the quality certification of the entire watch, which marks a significant improvement in the independent certification system that Vacheron Constantin has long supported, and will now more fully adapt to the needs of lay customers.

The Watch House is also honored to participate in this event. It is mentioned that Alain Zimmermann, the global CEO of the Baume & Mercier brand, also came to the scene to have a close conversation with everyone.

 The location of this meeting was selected at Yiheng Hotel in Qiaofufang Grassland. The style of the room has a strong retro style, which also echoes the long history and sense of age of the famous brand.

 In addition to the retro furnishings in the room, there are elaborate display windows with Baume & Mercier watches. The picture above shows the series featured by Baume & Mercier – Crichton.

Baume & Mercier is a brand with a 184-year history. ‘Aestheticism, only making watches of the highest quality’ is the brand’s motto. It insists on creating classic and timeless watch series, becoming a perfect model.

 Mr. Alain Zimmermann is holding a black and white photo of the lady in her hand. She is the daughter of Louis-Victor Baume Mélina. At the same time, Alain Zimmermann also told us that there was an unwritten rule in the circle of high-class women at that time, that women never You need to care about time, which is why women at the time did not need to wear a watch. But Mr. Louis-Victor Baume didn’t think so, and he decided to break this rule.

 So in 1869, Louis-Victor Baume made a delicate pocket watch for his daughter. This timepiece not only broke the phenomenon of women not wearing watches at the time, but also conveyed a father’s deep love for his daughter. .

   After hearing a lot about Baume & Mercier’s history and great innovations, the real protagonist of this event also debuted, that is, Baume & Mercier’s 2014 new models of watches.
