Since 1912, Vacheron Constantin shows boldness and creativity by adopting the tonneau shape, representing a clean break with the traditional shape of pocket watches. The harmonious and contemporary lines of this collection’s timepieces asset a unique personality, both classic and original.

The Malte Tourbillon model is the only Hallmark of Geneva certified tonneau-shaped tourbillon. The finely curved 38 x 48.2 mm case is attired in 18K 5N pink gold and is water-resistant to 30 meters. This masculine watch offers a sand-blasted slate-coloured dial punctuated by eleven baton-shaped hour-markers and one Roman numeral made of pink gold. At 6 o’clock, the Maltese cross-shaped tourbillon carriage reveals the beautiful finishing performed on each of the movement components. The slightly off-centred position of the hours and minutes hands, as well as the low frequency of the movement, 18,000 vibrations per hour, ensure a fine view of the tourbillon. 169 elements compose the 2795 caliber, a mechanical hand-winding movement entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. It is endowed with a 45-hour power reserve.
