Vacheron Constantin is the oldest wristwatch manufacturer in existence, with a wonderful heritage and history. Established in 1755 by Jean-Marc Vacheron, the firm has continued in its tradition of excellence ever since. Vacheron Constantin is proud to present its new caliber 2450 automatic movement, designed and developed exclusively by the Vacheron Constantin Manufacture. The new caliber 2450 automatic movement is a priceless addition to the range of Vacheron Constantin movements. The caliber 2450 automatic movement perpetuates the Vacheron Constantin tradition by drawing on the richness of its history while displaying its capacity for innovation.
Inspired by the benchmark caliber 1120 movement introduced in the 1960s, the new caliber 2450 movement has preserved the same resolutely modern approach in both design and manufacture and has remained faithful to its concept, which was based on technical perfection and a set of time-honored values. It harmoniously integrates watch and calendar functions, displaying the date, hour, minute, and, by means of a central hand, the seconds. Its proportions – 3.60 mm high and 25.6 mm in diameter (11½ lignes) – are perfectly suitable for men’s range of models. Beating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations an hour, this movement has a power reserve exceeding 40 hours. Lastly, the open bottom was provided with a large ice sapphire which makes it possible to admire the new estampillé automatic movement.
