Vacheron Constantin Malte Tourbillon Openworked is the testimony of Vacheron’s capacities, both in terms of pure watchmaking and for métiers d’art. First of all, this watch has a shaped movement, following the curves of the case, and featuring a large one-minute tourbillon at 6, enclosed in the brand’s typical Malte cross tourbillon cage. The display of the time, elegantly placed in the upper part of the watch, is accompanied with a date indication, in the upper right angle, and a power reserve discreetly placed at 10. This movement ticks at 2.5 Hz (18’000 vibrations/hour) and boasts 45 hours of power reserve when fully wound.
The second specificity holds in the impressive skeletonized work done on the plates and bridges, and on the finishing. Every single part sees its shape transformed and lightened to allow light to enter in the movement. Then, the 246 parts are all finished, engraved, polished or grained, something that requires over 540 hours of patience to trained watchmakers. Retaining its proportions and barrel shape, it now replaces platinum by 18k pink gold, a finish that is also applied to the movement (via a gold coating). The case, slightly larger and thicker than the moon and power reserve edition (due to the impressive movement), is complemented by a brown alligator strap. The first edition in platinum was cold and grey, this new pink gold edition is warm and shiny. Being a skeletonized watch, it has no dial, to the exception of an inner flange used to display the minutes and hours, however the signature XII in gold is retained.
