Today in Collector’s Special category, we feature “Vacheron Constantin Malte Quantième Perpétuel Rétrogradant replica watch ” -Moscow boutique exclusive edition (2007),a limited series, engraved with the Russian coat-of-arms, exclusively for Vacheron Constantin’s Moscow Boutique.
This Vacheron Constantin Perpetual Calendar copy timepiece also features a retrograde date. At the end of the last day of each month, its hand jumps back instantaneously to the first day of the following month and starts all over again.
When the back is lifted, the very compact – 11 1/2 lignes for a thickness of 5.05 mm – Manufactory-made 1126QPR automatic mechanical movement can be admired through a sapphire crystal.
– A black dial whose surface, thanks to the texture of the finishing, absorbs rather than reflects the light and greatly improves legibility of the time. This is indicated by two facetted sword hands and 5N 18K pink gold applied hour-markers and Roman numerals. Manufactured in a very limited series of only five pieces in 5N 18K pink gold, this model has two exclusive features:
– An officer back which has been engraved on the outside with the Russian coat-of-arms, with its two-headed eagle.
Well- proportioned with its 39 mm case and with its fan-shaped horns and a crown stamped with a stylised version of the Maltese Cross, this timepiece only needs to be set once a century! So it won’t need setting again until 2100!
