Malte 100th Anniversary Edition
Vacheron Constantin celebrates the anniversary of the first tonneau watch with a limited edition piece that captures the purity and elegance of an earlier era. The 36.7 x 47.6 mm case is crafted from 950 platinum, while the dial features painted “exploding” Roman numerals, giving this piece a strong vintage appeal.
Vacheron Constantin hand-wound Calibre 4400 drives the hour and minute hands. Developed and crafted within the Manufacture, this movement is endowed with a 65-hour power reserve thanks to its large barrel. Beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vph), it comprises 106 parts and measures 28.60 mm (12.5’’’).
The 100 watches in this Malte 100th Anniversary Edition, each individually numbered on the caseback, are fitted with a strap in blue Mississippiensis alligator, secured by a Malte cross-shaped buckle in 950 platinum.
The suggested retail price is $51,300 with the retail launch scheduled for September.
Malte Small Model
Completing the redesigned Malte collection is the Small Model, offered in an 18k pink gold case measuring 28.3 x 38.7 mm housing a Calibre 1202 quartz movement. The bezel is set with diamonds for added sparkle. Two straps, in alligator and satin, complete the package. At this time, the USA launch date and price for this watch are yet to be determined.
