Vacheron Constantin branded the Chronometer Royal name 100 years ago and is now commemorating its centennial with a special limited watch. Since then there have been about 20 models from them with the Chronometer Royal name and the latest to join the roll is the Vacheron Constantin Chronometre Royal 1907. Releasing only in a limited edition of 100 watches, it contains a COSC certified, Geneva Seal finished, caliber 2460 SCC. The dial is hand-crafted in white Grand Feu enamel, and you can be sure that the dials are bubble-free also. What sets this year’s edition apart from subsequent years is the fact that the 12 is burgundy red while in future production it will be black as with the rest of the numbers. It measures 25.6mm X 3.6mm, has 27 jewels, and also a power reserve of 40 hours. The case, in 18kt, rose gold, measures 39mm, is water-resistant to 30 meters, and has a hand-sewn brown alligator leather band with an 18kt rose gold clasp with Maltese Cross.
This rare model is quite clearly destined for connoisseurs and collectors, representing the perfect expression of the classic Haute Horlogerie values embodied by Vacheron Constantin for over 250 years.
