Replica Vacheron Constant Skeleton watch recommend: Traditionnelle Chronograph Perpetual Calendar Watch
when learning about the Replica Vacheron Constantin Historiques, the first question on my mind was: "just how new is it, really?" In other words, after we saw the manufacture release a number of rather lust-worthy pieces in recent years, how excited will the world of watch enthusiasts and collectors get by a very classical-looking, albeit rather bulky watch that merges two, by now, well-known complications?
Replica Vacheron Constantin -is one of the most popular in replica watches that seemingly enjoys to refer to itself as "the Maison," with a capital "M" - calls this new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Chronograph Perpetual Calendar "the ultimate expression of this successful synergy, combining tradition and formal elegance with supreme mastery of horological complications." Hmm. To start with the unquestionably desirable properties of this Replica Vacheron Constantin Tourbillon watch (reference 5000T/000P-B048), we'd best look under its hood first, as it features the manufacture's in-house-made 1142QP caliber. Considering its perpetual calendar and chronograph functions, its relatively low component count of just 324 parts and 21 jewels testifies to some rather clever movement engineering. On one side of the sapphire bottom cover, you can enjoy an unimpeded view, what is a familiar with the site, any seasoned watches lovers: a manual on timing chain codes, all of its beautiful.
The picture is made complete by a large balance wheel with variable moment of inertia screws in its periphery. Across from it, a column wheel sporting the brand's Maltese cross logo, plus of course some rather beautifully curved cams and bridges and your typical, albeit not that fancy-looking wheels for the chronograph mechanism. To describe it is a mouthful, but with the hand-finished, mirror-polished, Geneva striped and perlage-adorned parts, the 1142QP truly serves as a worthy successor for the brand's historical hand-wound chronographs.
To spice things up a bit,Replica Vacheron Constantin Malte has fitted a perpetual calendar complication to the dial side of the caliber, with indications for date, day of the week, month, leap year and phase of the moon. Even with the base movement - that runs at 3 Hertz and provides 48 hours of power reserve - being sandwiched in between these two respectable and indeed evergreen complications, the 1142QP movement measures 27.5 millimeters wide and 7.37 millimeters thick. Manageable proportions for a high complication.
We also must pay attention to, vacheron constantin, said they have created 1142 qp movement, in order to better accord with the requirement of Geneva seal recently updated requirements of the. The 1142QP offers a 0.5 Hertz bump from 2.5 to 3 Hertz in frequency to help ensure it performs better during and after the shock resistance tests of the Seal, while the power reserve has been increased to 48 hours, with, as they claim, special attention dedicated to improving the efficiency of the chronograph function - again, to help it comply with the Seal's relatively new and rather strict criteria concerning power reserve claims while the watch's functions are being used. Big Replica Vacheron Constantin Tonneau watch is similar, they seem to be here to stay, although the perfect circle of round table and straight, emotional style ear almost no room for error, dial the upper part of the three holes, and two close to the center of the surface of the child, do release the ambitious portfolio a big case and a more "traditional" movement. The case-back view tells a similar story: there's a lot of case around that movement, although the coined and notched tiers do help ease the polished platinum's visual heft.
So, if what you want is a truly impressive and uniquely Vacheron piece from the brand - with one of the finer hand-wound chronograph movements that "the Maison" has to offer - what, exactly, is wrong with the almost objectively equally elegant. So, even when considering that merging two such challenging-to-make complications into one movement is not easy or in fact usual, the question remains who this 43-millimeter platinum beast is exactly for - when the same brand offers two other, equally (if not more) remarkable pieces that can be had for the cost of this one single reference? The Traditionelle very much deserves to live on - but, as I see it, the stellar Harmony and Patrimony from recent years still steal the show.
