Here we explore the some details make the Vacheron Constantin Traditionelle 6500T Minute Repeater Tourbillon replica watch 6500T and why it has attracted our interest.
At Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH), we are seeing a lot of great new complication watches, including some superb multi-complication replica watch — and, once agin, Vacheron Constantin replicas does not disappoint. One of the most beautiful timepieces — thanks to its audible elegance — is the Vacheron Constantin Minute Repeater Tourbillon copy timepiece.
The movement powering the VC Traditionelle Minute Repeater Tourbillon replica is the in-house developed and manufactured Calibre 2755 TMR (TMR for Tourbillon Minute Repeater).
The movement of Traditionelle Minute Repeater Tourbillon watch deftly combines tourbillon escapement (which compensates for errors in timekeeping due to the effects of gravity when the watch is in certain positions) with seconds attached to the cage. The tourbillon carriage is shaped in the Vacheron Constantin Maltese cross emblem. The escapement is visible via an aperture at 6:00 on the dial and beats at a slow 2.5Hz for a slower, steady rhythm. It chimes the hours, quarter hours and minutes past the quarter hours in three tones. The minute repeater portion of the 471-part, hand-wound movement is equally as fantastic.
The VC Traditionelle Minute Repeater Tourbillon watch comes in a contemporarily-sized case at 44 mm in diameter and 12.20 mm thick. The case is handsomely polished on the top and on the flanks, and is brushed at the bottom for a contrasting look. The sapphire crystal case-back reveals the calibre with 40 jewels and meticulous handcrafted finishes. The dial features a specially created hand-guilloche’ motif that is used solely on “boutique only” watches. The watch will be sold in a “Music of Time” resonance holder that amplifies the sound of the repeater.
The Traditionelle Minute Repeater Tourbillon might not have been the brightest star of SIHH 2017 or even the darling amongst the Vacheron Constantin novelties, but it deserves high praise for simply being a near-perfect Vacheron Constantin Minute Repeater Tourbillon Replica timepiece.
