Vacheron Constantin introduces Retrograde Annual Calendar
November, 2010: The Quai de l’Ile collection launched by Vacheron Constantin in 2008 now has the option of a Retrograde Annual Calendar model. This complication is revealed through the new Vacheron Constantin Calibre 2460 QRA and housed within a 43 mm case offering unique opportunities for personalisation.
Quai de l’Ile is a unique concept where consumers can create their watch from a scratch within some predefined parameters. Not only is the watch made according to your exact specifications, but it can also bear the stamp of your individuality by getting your initials or name or any other detail engraved at the back of the watch.
The new complication, the retrograde annual calendar, is another choice you can make if you plan to create your Quai de l’Ile watch. Clothed in pink or white gold – or both if the customer so wishes – this model houses a new mechanical self-winding complicated movement designed, developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin. This calibre incorporates two expressions of technical mastery: the annual calendar combined with a retrograde date display.
It also offers new dial versions with satin-brushed/vertical finishing in the central zone and opaline finishing in the outer zone, as well as for the month and date indications. The Quai de l’Ile Retrograde Annual Calendar is delivered with two straps: one in black or brown alligator leather, and the other in black or brown rubber, secured by an 18K pink or white gold folding clasp
