Launched at Watches & Wonders 2015, the Malte Small Haute Joaillerie features case, bracelet and dial set with a total of 742 baguette-cut diamonds, total weight of approx. 28.9 carats.
Its cambered shape, exquisite curves and slenderness make the Malte high jewellery small model an anthem to femininity. Its pure, refined lines that are supremely classic in spirit, yet imbued with an authentically modern touch, take on a sensual allure beneath the sparkle of its setting composed of 742 diamonds totalling no less than 28.90 carats. The radial setting of the 126 diamonds adorning the dial, converging towards the axis of the hours and minutes hands, automatically draws the gaze towards the centre of the timepiece.
Entirely crafted using the invisible setting technique, this new creation bearing the Hallmark of Geneva comes in a curved case measuring 29.30 by 39.60 mm and perfectly moulding the shape of even the daintiest wrist. Beating inside it is Calibre 1400, a mechanical hand-wound movement developed and produced by Vacheron Constantin. The working of the latter is visible through a transparent tonneau-type caseback reflecting the shape of the case. The gold bracelet – associated to a jewellery clasp – is entirely paved with 494 baguette-cut diamonds. This shape of precious stone gives rise to the light for a feminine, elegant and distinguished rendering.
