Blue is a dial shading that Vacheron Constantin consistently connected with steel watches, as it has this virus look to it. In any event, as indicated by their Style & Heritage Director, Christian Selmoni. That’s what he told the group in a short however intriguing board talk with Laurent Perves (Chief Marketing Officer Vacheron Constantin), Patrick Graf (Chief Commercial Officer Bucherer) and Ben Clymer (CEO Hodinkee). Patrick Graf was pleased to present their most recent Blue Editions participation, this time with Vacheron Constantin. Altogether, Bucherer completed 21 coordinated efforts with 13 distinctive watch makers. We covered past versions here and here , for example.
Vacheron Constantin Bucherer Blue Editions
On Wednesday 26th, I was welcomed by Bucherer to come to Paris and witness the presentation of the new Vacheron Constantin Bucherer Blue Editions. In the lovely and well-known Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, the previously mentioned individuals presented the three new Vacheron Constantin Bucherer Blue Editions watches. Three Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle models, one for women, one that can be worn by people (38mm) and a restrictive 42mm Tourbillon with 14-days of force hold. Every one of the three watches convey the image, an exceptionally elevated requirement for fine watchmaking.
Without further ado, let’s view every one of the three watches.
Traditionnelle Small Model Bucherer Blue Editions
As composed over, the littlest size of the pack is this lovely looking 33mm pink gold Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Small Model, with a jewel set bezel. This bezel comprises of 54 jewels amounting to 0.87 carats altogether. As you can see the pink gold combines impeccably with the dark Blue Editions tone, an all around settled on choice by Vacheron Constantin (and Bucherer). It is really a warm combination, and not cold by any means. Which it without a doubt would be, on the off chance that it was a white gold or platinum watch.
The development for this 33mm watch is a hand-wound type 1400, comprising of 98 sections and 20 gems. Type 1400 has a force save of 40 hours. It is an extremely exemplary looking women watch and generally dainty. Connected to it is this blue gator lash that impeccably coordinates the blue of the dial. The blue dial is perfect looking, and there (fortunately) very little content on the dial next to the Vacheron Constantin logo and Maltese cross. Pink gold dauphine style hands and wonderfully cut hour markers give a pleasant difference with the dial. The retail cost for this watch is 30.000CHF.
Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions
With a 38mm width, this Vacheron Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions can be effortlessly worn by people. A quite flimsy programmed watch, in pink gold with blue dial. The dial comes to life a smidgen more, because of the running seconds hand at 9 o’clock. At 3 o’clock, there’s a date gap with a pleasant pink gold casing around it. The date circle is additionally in blue, which isn’t best for contrast, yet it looks excellent. Additionally here we locate the pink gold dauphin molded hands, pink gold applied numerals and the printed railroad track minute circle.
The Vacheron Constantin type 2455 development has been fitted to this Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions model, which is an in-house fabricated development. It comprises of 194 pieces and 27 gems. Much the same as the type 1400 development of the ladies’ adaptation, the force hold is 40 hours.
As you can see, the development is a gala for the eyes. A flawlessly designed gold rotor and entirely completed development connects under. As you can find in the photograph underneath, the Geneva trademark is on the equilibrium wheel bridge.
Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon Bucherer Blue Editions
Last however surely not least, the weighty hitter of the Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions is this Tourbillon form with a 14-day power save. This watch was saved for last during the presentation, of course.
As you can see underneath, the tourbillon has the state of the Maltese cross. A smooth gold hand is demonstrating the seconds on top of the tourbillon. At 12 o’clock, there is the force hold marker that goes as far as possible as long as 14-days. The middle dauphin molded hands demonstrate hours and minutes, obviously. Much the same as the other two watches, the blue opaline dial glances staggering in combination with the pink gold case, hour markers and hands.
A 42mm pink gold case that houses VC type 2260, an in-house created development that comprises of 231 components and 31 gems. The force save is an incredible 336 hours, which rises to 14 days. It has four barrels mounted two by two and together they loosen up multiple times more gradually than a solitary barrel.
The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions 14-day Tourbillon is, obviously, somewhat thicker than the other two watches. The hand-wound type 2260 development comprises of more parts and houses the four barrels. This definitely takes up some space.
The cost of this 14-day Tourbillon model is 282.000CHF and it comes with a pink gold collapsing clasp.
First Thoughts On The Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions
I just had a concise glance at the new Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions, and a short second to take a few pictures during the occasion. However, I accept that both Bucherer and Vacheron Constantin worked really hard in coming up with a blue dialed Traditionnelle.
I discover the Traditionnelle assortment to be an awesome decision for a Bucherer Blue Editions version. From the outset, I was to some degree apprehensive that they would have picked the FiftySix assortment, which turns out to be a model I find not persuading, however that’s a subject for some other time. So seeing the Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle being utilized for the Bucherer Blue Editions fulfilled me. Wonderful round smooth cases and the blue opaline dials truly make them pop. I somewhat asked why Vacheron Constantin adhered to the more customary dial tones, maybe they presently understand this too. Albeit the 14-Day Tourbillon is the best of the best, I incline toward the 38mm Traditionnelle truth be told. An entirely measured dress watch that even looked staggering on my general huge wrists (pictures can be seen on ). The women watch is intriguing too, despite the fact that it does marginally depend on the overall believed that ladies lean toward little watches with precious stones. Maybe some do, Bucherer and Vacheron Constantin most likely have deals numbers to back this up, yet I am likewise considering the number of ladies will rather pick the 38mm adaptation. That could be something fascinating to screen or gauge for them.
The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions are restricted. Notwithstanding, numbers have not been given. These watches are not restricted to a particular ‘publically announced’ number. So it is certainly restricted, particularly the 14-Day Tourbillon rendition, chiefly by limit and assets, yet there will be no communication about the numbers. We see that a few brands will in general do a “One of xxx” when they limit watches, with the possibility that this will keep clients from battling about a specific number. However, this will likewise not be the situation for these three Traditionnelle Bucherer Blue Editions.
To be straightforward, I wouldn’t care excessively. They are simply wonderful blue versions pieces, from an assembling with a tremendous legacy with regards to fine watchmaking.
