Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Twin Beat Perpetual Calendar
We are happy to have discovered serious innovations during the SIHH. After the Lamborghini presentation by Roger Dubuis (“Ehm …yes! We have developed one watch, that costs 1,063,000 euros and has already been sold”) and another 14 references at IWC, bringing the total to 171, Vacheron Constantin comes with a really useful piece of technology.
The brilliant Hubert Hirner has developed an extremely clever piece of technology that solves an ever-present problem with perpetual calender watches: they often lag behind. There are several quick adjustment systems on the market, but nevertheless you have to adjust the day dozens of times, because it is just a bit sloppy when your watch is years behind… With the system introduced by Vacheron Constantin, the power reserve is no less than 65 days! Yes: days, not hours.
In the next issue of 0024 Horloges you can reed exactly how this works.
