Automatic movement based on JLC 889. Wandering hours similar to Urwerk / Starwheel.
An extraordinary sight, made possible by a no less extraordinary – and of course exclusive – mechanical development under the dial. Building on a tried and tested selfwinding movement, this horological “complication” puts in play a series of truly original devices: broad rotating hour “crown” wheel, positioning fingerpieces and pivoting hour-figure-bearing satellites driven by Maltese crosses reminiscent of Vacheron Constantin’s long-established corporate symbol. Not a few watchmakers would doubtless be stunned at the sight—before applauding so remarkable an accomplishment.
All watches using this caliber:
