A good wristwatch does more than tell time. Of course, many expensive watches can display the phases of the moon, the time of year, the precise second that just slipped away, and can even remind the wearer of an appointment. But the great ones complement your life, accessorize your wardrobe, and become an heirloom to pass along to future generations. The latest from the oldest watch manufacturer, VACHERON CONSTANTIN is the platinum version of the Tonneau Tourbillon Regulator in Malta collection. It features the manual-wind caliber 1790R, with 22 jewels, beating at 18,000 BPH with a power reserve indicator, regulator layout, and a Tourbillon. The power reserve is 40 hours. This series is offered in a limited edition of 50 pieces only. The hour, minute, and second hands are placed in a vertical row. The power reserve at 10 o’clock has been preserved and it is water-resistant to 30 meters. Let it settle on your wrist with an alligator strap and platinum clasp.
