Blue is a dial shading that Vacheron Constantin consistently connected with steel watch manufacturing plant as it has this virus look to it. In any event, as per their Style & Heritage Director, Christian Selmoni. That’s what he told the group in a short yet fascinating board talk with Laurent Perves (Chief Marketing Officer Vacheron Constantin), Patrick Graf (Chief Commercial Officer Bucherer) and Ben Clymer (CEO Hodinkee). Patrick Graf was enchanted to present their most recent Blue Editions participation, this time with Vacheron Constantin. Altogether, Bucherer completed 21 joint efforts with 13 diverse watch production line makers. We covered past versions here and here , for example.
Vacheron Constantin Bucherer Blue Editions
On Wednesday 26th, I was welcomed by Bucherer to come to Paris and witness the presentation of the new Vacheron Constantin Bucherer Blue Editions. In the delightful and well-known Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, the previously mentioned individuals presented the three new Vacheron Constantin Bucherer Blue Editions watch processing plant Three Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle models, one for women, one that can be worn by people (38mm) and an exceptionally restrictive 42mm Tourbillon with 14-days of force hold. Every one of the three watch manufacturing plant convey the insignia, an exceptionally elevated requirement for fine watchmaking.
Without further ado, let’s examine every one of the three watches.
Traditionnelle Small Model Bucherer Blue Editions
As composed over, the littlest size of the pack is this delightful looking 33mm pink gold Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Small Model, with a jewel set bezel. This bezel comprises of 54 jewels amounting to 0.87 carats altogether. As you can see the pink gold combines consummately with the dark Blue Editions tone, an all around settled on choice by Vacheron Constantin (and Bucherer). It is really a warm combination, and not cold by any means. Which it for sure would be, in the event that it was a white gold or platinum watch.
The development for this 33mm watch production line is a hand-wound type 1400, comprising of 98 sections and 20 gems. Type 1400 has a force save of 40 hours. It is an exceptionally exemplary looking women watch manufacturing plant and moderately slight. Appended to it is this blue croc lash that impeccably coordinates the blue of the dial. The blue dial is spotless looking, and there (fortunately) very little content on the dial adjacent to the Vacheron Constantin logo and Maltese cross. Pink gold dauphine style hands and flawlessly cut hour markers give a pleasant differentiation with the dial. The retail cost for this watch production line is 30.000CHF.
Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions
With a 38mm breadth, this Vacheron Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions can be effectively worn by people. A quite slim programmed watch processing plant in pink gold with blue dial. The dial comes to life somewhat more, because of the running seconds hand at 9 o’clock. At 3 o’clock, there’s a date opening with a pleasant pink gold casing around it. The date plate is likewise in blue, which isn’t best for contrast, however it looks generally excellent. Likewise here we locate the pink gold dauphin molded hands, pink gold applied numerals and the printed rail line track minute circle.
The Vacheron Constantin type 2455 development has been fitted to this Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions model, which is an in-house made development. It comprises of 194 pieces and 27 gems. Much the same as the type 1400 development of the ladies’ rendition, the force hold is 40 hours.
As you can see, the development is a dining experience for the eyes. A delightfully designed gold rotor and entirely completed development connects under. As you can find in the photograph beneath, the Geneva trademark is on the equilibrium wheel bridge.
Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon Bucherer Blue Editions
Last yet surely not least, the substantial hitter of the Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions is this Tourbillon adaptation with a 14-day power hold. This watch processing plant was saved for last during the presentation, of course.
As you can see beneath, the tourbillon has the state of the Maltese cross. A smooth gold hand is showing the seconds on top of the tourbillon. At 12 o’clock, there is the force hold marker that goes as far as possible as long as 14-days. The middle dauphin formed hands show hours and minutes, obviously. Much the same as the other two watch production line the blue opaline dial glances shocking in combination with the pink gold case, hour markers and hands.
A 42mm pink gold case that houses VC type 2260, an in-house created development that comprises of 231 components and 31 gems. The force hold is an astounding 336 hours, which rises to 14 days. It has four barrels mounted two by two and together they loosen up multiple times more gradually than a solitary barrel.
The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions 14-day Tourbillon is, obviously, somewhat thicker than the other two watch plant The hand-wound type 2260 development comprises of more parts and houses the four barrels. This most likely takes up some space.
The cost of this 14-day Tourbillon model is 282.000CHF and it comes with a pink gold collapsing clasp.
First Thoughts On The Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions
I just had a concise gander at the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions, and a short second to take a few pictures during the occasion. Yet, I accept that both Bucherer and Vacheron Constantin worked really hard in coming up with a blue dialed Traditionnelle.
I discover the Traditionnelle assortment to be a generally excellent decision for a Bucherer Blue Editions release. From the outset, I was fairly apprehensive that they would have picked the FiftySix assortment, which turns out to be a model I find not extremely persuading, yet that’s a theme for some other time. So seeing the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle being utilized for the Bucherer Blue Editions fulfilled me. Wonderful round smooth cases and the blue opaline dials truly make them pop. I marginally asked why Vacheron Constantin adhered to the more conventional dial tones, maybe they presently understand this too. Albeit the 14-Day Tourbillon is the best of the best, I lean toward the 38mm Traditionnelle truth be told. An entirely measured dress watch industrial facility that even looked shocking on my general enormous wrists (pictures can be seen on ). The women watch processing plant is fascinating too, in spite of the fact that it does somewhat depend on the overall felt that ladies favor little watch plant with jewels. Maybe some do, Bucherer and Vacheron Constantin presumably have deals numbers to back this up, yet I am additionally thinking about the number of ladies will rather pick the 38mm adaptation. That could be something fascinating to screen or quantify for them.
The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions are restricted. Be that as it may, numbers have not been given. These watch plant are not restricted to a particular ‘publically announced’ number. So it is unquestionably restricted, particularly the 14-Day Tourbillon form, essentially by limit and assets, however there will be no communication about the numbers. We see that a few brands will in general do a “One of xxx” when they limit watch industrial facility with the possibility that this will keep clients from battling about a specific number. However, this will likewise not be the situation for these three Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions.
To be straightforward, I wouldn’t care excessively. They are simply wonderful blue releases pieces, from a production with a tremendous legacy with regards to fine watchmaking.
