Vacheron Constantin announces a new model: the Malte Moon Phase and Power-Reserve. The barrel-shaped case measures a generous 39 x 49mm. The dial is adorned with five different finishes. The inner zone features a silvered, finely hand-guilloché “Clous de Paris” or hobnail motif. The outer zone is decorated with a vertical satin-brushed finish, also silvered. The minute circle, the power-reserve display as well as the inscriptions Vacheron Constantin Genève and Swiss Made are all transferred, while the seconds subdial at 6 o’clock is circular satin-brushed. And finally, the minute-circle and power-reserve zones are screen-printed in white.
The moon-phase display is composed of a disc with a galvanized base and a moon face in 18k white gold or pink gold, depending on the model. The broad dial includes nine hour-markers, two Roman numerals and a Maltese cross, all in 18k white or pink gold, depending on the version. Power is provided by a manual-winding 1410 manufacture caliber bearing the Hallmark of Geneva. The mainplate is finished with circular-graining on both sides and the plate and bridges are beveled. The movement runs in 22 jewels at 28,800 vph with a 40 hour power reserve.
The Malte Moon Phase and Power-Reserve is available with a case in 18k white gold or 5N pink gold. The satin-brushed case-back is secured by screws. The dial is protected by a glareproofed cambered sapphire crystal. Water resistance is guaranteed to 30 meters.
