Description

At Watches & Wonders 2015, the Malte collection welcomed two models in 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold featuring a slate-coloured dial and stamped with the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva. These two timepieces complement the current range of Malte models driven by the now iconic Vacheron Constantin handwound Caliber 4400 with its 65-hour power reserve.

The Malte collection by Vacheron Constantin, distinguished by its tonneau-shaped models, is now enriched with two exceptionally understated models displaying the hours, minutes and small seconds, which for horological purists represents one of the most demanding stylistic exercises. Above and beyond outward appearances and prejudices, creating a pure watch interpreted in its simplest possible expression is an extremely subtle exercise in seeking equilibrium and harmony. Timepieces that fulfil the essential role for which they were originally designed – meaning to tell the time and nothing else – are as complex to make as watches equipped with additional functions.
