In 2006 Vacheron Constantin created the Collection Excellence Platine, a selection of beautiful timepieces issued in limited series. Vacheron Constantin has just released a preview of their new Hallmark of Geneva certified timepiece that will launch at next year’s SIHH. This year the Malte Tourbillon, is introduced in 38 x 48.24 mm by 12.73 mm thick 950 platinum tounneau shaped case.

The tourbillon carriage, inspired by the brand’s signature Maltese cross emblem, provides a showcase for the exceptional level of finishing of the 169-part mechanical hand-wound Calibre 2795 movement. The movement is beating at 18,000 vibrations/hour, and delivers a power reserve of approximately 45 hours. The Calibre 2795 movement  can be seen through a transparent sapphire crystal case back, and is water-resistance tested at a pressure of 3 bar (approx. 30 meters)
