Classic: Vacheron Constantin Malte Malta Tourbillon Watch And Moon Phase Power Reserve Watch

Vacheron Constantin’s Malte wine barrel-shaped case may not be the favorite of most people, but it is really special compared to many round watches. From a historical perspective, in 1912 Vacheron Constantin began to create watches with a barrel-shaped case in order to break away from the traditional circular design; then it has evolved into today’s Malta series.

 Because of the barrel-shaped case, the space of the face plate is relatively narrow, which is suitable for simple configuration. For example, the Malte Moon Phase Power Reserve watch does not have too complicated functions, but it can clearly show the beauty of the moon mother. It is equipped with a 1410 AS manual winding movement. Although the thickness of 4.2 mm is not ultra-thin, it is only 10.9 mm thick with the case. With the design of the lugs inwardly curved, it is very comfortable to fit on the wrist. The dial is equipped with a power reserve display, which reminds the wearer of the winding time in a beautiful configuration.

Malte Maltese Moon Phase Power Reserve Watch 18K 5N Rose Gold Case, 36.7 x 48.1 mm, Hour, Minute, Small Seconds, Moon Phase, Power Reserve Display, 1410 AS Manual Winding Movement, Geneva Seal, Power Reserve 40 Hours, sapphire crystal glass and case back, waterproof to 30 meters, Mississippi alligator strap.
 Another tourbillon watch is even more exciting. The most dynamic visual effect presented at 6 o’clock is eye-catching and cannot be ignored. Vacheron Constantin’s tourbillon has the brand’s Maltese cross frame, which has a distinctive image. Appreciating from the surface, you can see the balance of the hairspring during the escapement operation; the tourbillon rotates at a ground speed of 60 seconds, and the seconds can be read with the small rose gold second hand and the outer scale on the frame. If you want to watch the action between the escape wheel and the escapement, in fact, the flip to the case back is more clear, and it is worthy of careful taste. It is equipped with a 2795 manual winding movement, consisting of 246 parts and 27 ruby ​​bearings. The size is 27.37 x 29.30 mm. It is fully developed in accordance with the shape of the case. It is more moving than a universal circular movement.

Malte Tourbillon Malta 18K 5N Rose Gold Case, 38 x 48.24 mm diameter, hours, minutes, small seconds, tourbillon, 2795 manual winding movement, Geneva stamp, 45-hour power reserve, sapphire crystal mirror and Case back, waterproof to 30 meters, Mississippi alligator strap.
 Of course, Vacheron Constantin’s modification of the details also makes people say that the tourbillon bridge alone requires 11 hours of manual processing; the chamfering and polishing of the other parts also show the level of the top brands. The Geneva stamp on the upper plate represents the modification of the details of the parts, which has passed the traditional 12 rules. The Geneva stamp on the case indicates that the watch meets the latest revised standards, including a minimum of 30 meters water resistance, within 1 minute Weekly error value, power reserve in accordance with the label, and so on.

The back of the Malta Tourbillon watch can clearly see the escapement fork and the escapement move one block at a time.

The Maltese tourbillon watch is not only a movement splint, but also a Geneva stamp on the case, which means that the performance of the entire watch has passed rigorous testing.
 Whether it is the moon phase display or the tourbillon, both Maltese watches are made of 18K 5N rose gold, from the case, the hour markers, the brand logo to the hands. Among them, the hour and minute hands are specially polished on both sides with mirror-polished and sandblasted textures, which are highlights in detail processing and are also admirable outside the craftsmanship.

An Ethereal And Beautiful Moving Poem

Time seems like a quicksand, but the years will become a glorious time. Nowadays, the development of timepieces makes the display of time increasingly diverse. With a wide range of watch brands, a variety of watch creations are even more impressive for the magical charm of mechanical timepieces. For Van Cleef & Arpels, the challenge is to capture the ephemeral nature without limiting time. Therefore, in the family’s proprietary concept, time is equivalent to an aesthetic poem. The beauty of materials and design is required to better ‘paint’ this gorgeous picture. Therefore, when creating jewelry pieces that show time, the family’s outstanding senior jewelry experts often capture the beauty of the moment in precious and gorgeous ways, and set this ephemeral beauty on the timepiece, so that her short-term beauty becomes a wrist Eternity in time. The craftsmanship compliments the mystery of time, and shows the brilliance of precious gems. Presumably this is the real reason why the world loves Van Cleef & Arpels.

Romantic encounter, interpretation of immortal poems

    In fact, Van Cleef & Arpels was born of a romantic and beautiful marriage: in 1906, the combination of Estelle Arpels and Alfred Van Cleef led to the formation of this jewelry and watch brand. This century-old legendary poem has begun after they set up Van Cleef & Arpels’s first boutique at 22 Fanton Place (Paris Jewelry Box) in France. In each subsequent season, the family will create dreamlike classic timepieces, turning refreshing ideas into endless surprises, which will cause everyone to stop and watch. Each of the beautiful pictures told reflects a poetic outlook on life, the infinite imagination in creation, and highlights the extraordinary craftsmanship and charm of the brand watchmaker. Fairies, butterflies, flowers, adult fairy tales and hidden timepieces all show the brand’s enduring and desirable alternative watch charm, giving the wearer a feast of poetic and ethereal watchmaking.

Fairy ethereal and poetic

Van Cleef & Arpels Extraordinary Object series first work: Automate Fée Ondine
   At the 2017 SIHH Fine Watch Salon, the brand launched this exquisite table clock, combining a long tradition of fine jewelry making with the brand’s fine watchmaking craftsmanship, to compose a new chapter in family craftsmanship. Whether it is a micro-mechanical device that drives the fairy, or a petal that is light enough to randomly oscillate and undulate, it contains the infinite creativity and outstanding craftsmanship of clock makers.

   The ruby ​​ladybug created by the invisible mosaic process will slowly ‘crawl’ (hour hand) over time, indicating the change of time for the observer. At 12 o’clock, the ladybug will return to the far point due to the clock’s ‘flyback’ function and continue another half-day journey.

   This poetic and ethereal clock bears a fairy tale that lasts for 50 seconds and begins to be slowly staged: on the gradient green enamel lotus leaf made of about 60 metal bars, the water lily is undulating Slowly in full bloom with a pleasant bell. At the same time, the fairy carved in 18k white gold also gradually awakened, watching the butterflies dancing above the water lilies, and the fairy then flapped on the wings of stained glass enamel, dancing slowly. After flying, the butterfly stopped in the water lily to rest, and at this time the fairy gradually fell asleep, and the wonderful water lily also stopped. Behind these 50-second movements is the perfect fusion of many difficult techniques and craftsmanships such as enamel, flyback, and so on.

Romantic encounter on the bridge of lovers

Van Cleef & Arpels ‘Lover Bridge’ watch
   Lovers, moonlight, stars, arch bridge, Van Cleef & Arpels depicts the romantic scene of men and women embracing under the bright starry sky among a few pens. Against the backdrop of a sparkling white gold diamond case, this “邂逅” adds a bit of aristocratic elegance, and makes the charm of the enamel dial even more irresistible. When watching the watch, all the worries will be forgotten, leaving only a beautiful love story. The men couldn’t wait to ‘watch’ the minutes on the watch, while the women gradually approached as the hours passed, finally meeting in the center of the bridge. Unlike the hands of a traditional watch, this watch conveys the magical and romantic charm of time to the theme of beautiful and romantic encounters. It is worth noting that the minute indicated by the man is based on the rose on his hand, and the tip of the umbrella is used by the woman. This detailed processing also makes the pattern indicate the time more accurately, making time a ‘romantic story’ More flavor.

Butterfly makes watch more moving

Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Papillon Automate
   Judging from Van Cleef & Arpels’ works over the years, the colorful butterfly element is one of the essential elements in each new product. Just like this Lady Arpels Papillon Automate watch at the Geneva Watch Fair 2017. The dynamic beauty of butterflies makes people appreciate the passing of time in the picturesque garden of the wrist. On the ‘garden dial’, every corner is full of ethereal and poetic pictures: as the hour and minute hands on the right side of the dial move slowly, the butterfly will flap the wings 1 to 4 times in accordance with the power reserve change. .

   Mother-of-pearl flowers, double-colored painted glass enamel, decorative butterfly wings and infill enamel are dotted with grassy countryside. The curved blades made of curved stained glass enamel are facing the viewer with rich blue-green gradient colors, which are mutually contrasted with dynamic butterflies, making the scene on the dial more three-dimensional and ornamental.

Dance of clouds, swallows and butterflies, a combination of secret design and poetry

Van Cleef & Arpels Lady Arpels Ronde des Papillons
   This watch is one of Van Cleef & Arpels’ outstanding examples of watchmaking craftsmanship and art. In addition, the creative design of three hidden butterflies to indicate the minutes and swallows to indicate the hours is also unique, showing the unique timekeeping method of the family. Three butterflies appear one after another on the cloud, indicating the passage of minutes in the form of a relay in the cloud. The swallow on the lower side crossed the hour time mark with one side of the wings. At the end of the 12 hour mark, the watch’s flyback function was used to return to 0 o’clock and spread wings again. Clouds, swallows and butterflies are like a dynamic picture scroll, vivid and beautiful.

   In addition, the module button on the side of the watch is set. As long as you press it lightly, the butterfly air ballet for about ten seconds will be staged in this dreamy cloud, and return to the original track at the end, continue Precise time reporting. This sudden surprise can also be presented as an added value of this ‘hidden’ watch.
Summary: In addition, Van Cleef & Arpels has many unique timepieces to show us the family’s unique watchmaking philosophy. Let the poetic and ethereal beauty moment of nature leap above the watch, make the timeless picture of time more magnificent and beautiful. In addition, the lifelike scene is also perfectly integrated with the surrounding precious metal and gemstone cases, and together they will bring the charm of ‘Van Cleef & Arpels’ to the extreme, attracting more watch enthusiasts to stop and enjoy.

Vacheron Constantin Asia Pacific Director: Why Do Chinese People Buy High-end Watches?

At the 796 Huaihai Middle Road, Shanghai, the home of Vacheron Constantin, Julien Tornare sat opposite and talked. ‘In the future, we will open more brand image stores like Shanghai Vacheron Constantin House,’ he said.
As the new Managing Director of Vacheron Constantin in the Asia Pacific region, Julien Tornare has too much expectation for this hot market in China, and his own actions are equally aspirational. He has led the brand’s US market for 6 years, and his achievements are obvious to all. The Chinese market is undoubtedly a wider stage.

Teach Chinese to fall in love with complex functions
At this year’s Basel Watch Fair, many brands launched simple, ultra-thin watches, which has become the biggest trend of this year’s timepieces. The reason why this cannot be ignored is that Chinese consumers prefer this type of appearance, so the ultra-thin trend is largely to cater to the appetite of Chinese people and pry open Chinese wallets. It is nicknamed ‘Chinese Watch’. But these ultra-thin watches look simple, but they are not simple. As Julien Tornare puts it: ‘It’s not easy to do. It’s very difficult to make. You need to put that multifunctional and parts into such a thin watch. In the shell. ‘
In fact, what we want to say is that under this trend, will Vacheron Constantin produce more simple watches in order to conform to the Chinese market? Because this brand has always been known for its complex watches.
Julien Tornare’s answer is: No. ‘We produce watches not only to please the Chinese market, but to have our own brand philosophy. We will do some positioning for our products according to customer needs, but the core brands will not change, that is, in terms of technology, design, and craftsmanship. In terms of application, the Vacheron Constantin tradition is the mainstay, and it has continued. He added, ‘Each brand is its own DNA. The most important thing is to maintain it, not to modify it arbitrarily according to market demand. For example, some watch brands It is famous for its sports models. One day it suddenly made some ultra-thin and small watches, and the market may not be able to accept it all at once. ‘
As we all know, manufacturing complex-function watches is very difficult technology, but not everyone can understand the profound beauty. More people see not the doorway, but the excitement, and they do n’t know why they need to spend millions. Go buy a complication watch. ‘I think a better way for consumers to understand complex functions is to create interactive opportunities and pass on the knowledge of complex functions to them.’
Taking Vacheron Constantin as an example, they will regularly hold small parties and exchange dinners for VIP customers, and invite watchmakers to demonstrate and introduce complex functions on the spot, such as tourbillons. Masters will introduce how tourbillons are made and their functions in watches. What is it, what are the differences in the production process of each brand. ‘Customers can understand the birth process of high-complexity watches and the story behind it by communicating with the master. This is the most intuitive way to understand the product. Many customers first buy simple models, and then buy slightly more complicated ones. Buying high complexity, this gradual process is also our hope to lead customers to understand the mystery of the watch step by step, so that they know what is the significance behind spending so much money on a watch. ‘

Americans like personality, Chinese prefer identity
Leading the US market for 6 years, Julien Tornare is absolutely familiar with this market, and although it has been only half a year in the Chinese market, it is clearly not unfamiliar. He has been able to sum up the differences between the two markets. ‘This may be because the traditions of the two nations are different.’
First of all, people in the two markets have shown very different interests in the cultural heritage behind the watch brands. Americans are not very cold about this. ‘A lot of people do n’t want to explore and understand more about the products behind them. They buy a product according to their own needs, while the Chinese are completely the opposite. Julien Tornare believes that This has something to do with the long history of the Chinese nation. ‘Chinese consumers are particularly willing to understand the true essence and cultural significance behind a brand through a watch. ‘
Second, consumers in both countries have different preferences for watch types. Americans prefer things with a flamboyant personality, so they prefer large dials, timekeeping functions, and dot sports. They do not have high requirements for materials, such as pink rose gold or any rare metal, and they are not particular about it. ; Chinese people like simple, traditional, especially small round, in the material is more biased towards precious metals, which can represent noble or their own identity.
‘In the Chinese market in the past few months, I have also seen that many Chinese consumers may not be the actual target shopping group of Vacheron Constantin or other high-end watch brands. For example, their spending power is not enough, but their love and sentiment for high-end watches is still Existing, they are willing to spend time and energy to accumulate wealth and wait for one day to buy the products of high-end watch brands. Once owned, this watch is not only for them to wear, but also a status symbol. ‘- –

  This watch, between square inches, uses a skillful filigree enamel technique to outline the flying shape: or playing the flute with both hands, or holding the lotus lightly with one hand, the figure is light, and the streamer stretches with the wind and slowly falls. The fine details of the craftsmanship, as well as the soft eyebrows of the sky, the gorgeous crown and armbands, are all clearly visible. As the poet of the Tang Dynasty Li Bai chanted: ‘Vegetarian hands hold hibiscus, step into space in imaginary steps. The neon dresses sway wide bands and float to heaven.’
