Fake Vacheron Constantin offered a new white gold edition of its Traditionnelle Complete Calendar (which debuted as an Excellence Platine edition in 2018) back last fall. Now, to end its highly productive year in 2021, the historic Geneva manufacture opens up the model's many complications in spectacular fashion in the new Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Openface. The watch is housed in both an 18k rose gold and an 18k white gold case measuring 41mm and showcases its “complete calendar” – which combines the triple calendar elements of day, date and month with an ultra-precise moon phase – through an avant-garde openwork sapphire dial. The new Caliber 2460 QCL/2 – based on the original Caliber 2460 QCL, itself a further development of Vacheron Constantin's first self-winding movement – has been modified with a headplate and bridges finished in a striking anthracite gray NAC galvanic treatment that gives an extraordinary sense of depth to the displays .
All the design codes of the Traditionnelle collection are present in both new watches, including the stepped, rounded structure of the case and lugs, the fluted back and elegantly slim bezel, and the double-faceted Dauphine hands and gold baton hour markers that occupy the top level of the open dial . The gray opal rim, on which a central hand points to the date, frames a slate gray guilloché segment through which the wearer can glimpse the date and day discs through large apertures. Complementing these two discs is the model's signature moon phase disc at 6 o'clock, featuring a photorealistic waxing and waning moon behind a translucent sapphire mask; this indicator is designed for the utmost precision and requires replica watches only a single correction after 122 years.The automatic manufacture Caliber 2460 QCL/2, visible through both the clear dial and the sapphire display window in the case back, consists of a total of 312 parts and offers a power reserve of 40 hours and a stop-seconds function. Its dark NAC-treated parts beat at a brisk frequency of 28,800 vph and are complemented by the Swiss maison's renowned haute horlogerie finishes, including circular veining on the main plate, beveled edges on the bridges and côtes de Genève throughout.Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Openface Comes with on a gray Mississippi alligator strap with tone-on-tone stitching and fastens to the wrist with a pin buckle in the same gold as the bag, crafted in the familiar half-Maltese cross design. Both the white and rose gold versions are priced at $47,300.
