Harmony is a contemporary collection par excellence, intended to house new Manufacture movements and unusual complications, designed to meet the demands of a lifestyle in perpetual motion. Firmly in tune with the times, the dual time function is one of the most useful and most soughtafter complications among both men and women. To meet these expectations, the Manufacture Vacheron Constantin has developed and produced the self-winding Caliber 2460DT dedicated to this must-have function. Three new references, two for men and one for women, are equipped with this new movement driving the hours, minutes, seconds along with dual time and day/night indications.
Like all creations from Harmony, these three new timepieces are certified by the Hallmark of Geneva, a guarantee of provenance, craftsmanship, durability and expertise. Presented to mark Vacheron Constantin’s 260th anniversary and issued in limited series on this occasion, the Dual Time and Dual Time Small model feature an oscillating weight adorned with a commemorative motif forming delicate scrolling patterns. Specifically created by the brand’s designers to set these exclusive editions apart, this unusual motif also known as “fleurisanne engraving” is inspired by the arabesques adorning the balance-cock of the oldest pocket watch by the Maison, signed by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755
Vacheron Constantin Caliber 2460DT with its generous 40-hour power reserve is composed of 233 parts, all hand-decorated in keeping with the finest watchmaking traditions, driving the hours, minutes, seconds along with dual time and day/night indications.
