Vacheron Constantin’s Malte Lady For SIHH 2013
Vacheron Constantin has decided to shift the focus on women this SIHH and have showcased three collections; Patrimony, Malte and Métiers d’Art; in this bid. The iconic Malte celebrates its 100th Anniversary and toasts to this century with the introduction of a curvaceous case.
The watch was originally created in 1912 when the watchmaker decided to take a break from round cases and created timepieces with tonneau cases. The Malte collection boasts of using only this iconic shape.
The line has three models, in pink and white gold and they are the picture of elegance and grace. Diamonds make a generous appearance, studded on the bezel as well as clustered in the tonneau shape in the centre of the brushed silver-toned dial. Roman numerals complete this visual.
Boasting of a Quartz movement and Caliber 1202, it comes in the choice of a leather strap from Alligator mississippiensis or a satin band.
