There are several triple calendar watch options in the Vacheron Constantin catalog within their “Historiques”, “FiftySix”, and “Traditionnelle” collections. This latest release hails from the latter of those model lines. The new “Traditionnelle Complete Calendar” features a monochromatic color scheme that stems from the case to the metal tone dial hue. It also manages to encapsulate a very harmonious blend of both their classic and modern design concepts. The 41mm case is made of 18k white gold with a polished finish, while mounted by a thin bezel, for an added sense of dimension.On the flip-side is a coin-edged caseback with a transparent center that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. It features a 22k gold oscillating weight with a Maltese cross.It comes equipped with two discreet pushers that serve to adjust the full calendar. Once all is set the moon-phase only requires one adjustment every 122 years to stay accurate. In between them is a setting-crown adorned by an engraving of the Maltese cross. Water-resister on this watch can reach up to 30 meters (96 feet).Time is exhibited on a metal-like matte grey dial with 18k white gold applied hour index markers, while circling around the flange is a white railroad-track ring of minute index markers. The “complete calendar” is scattered around the dial with two aperture windows: the current month on the right-side, slightly over the 3 o’clock position; the day of the week on the left-side, slightly over the 9 o’clock position; while circling around the dial (parallel to the minute markers) are the 31 days, being pointed out by a black central hand with a semi-circle tip being used to point out the current date.The dauphine-style hands are also made out of 18k white gold and point out the current time, with a smaller thinner hand for the seconds. A precision moon phase is located in the lower half portion of the dial, with a white gold moon-phase disc showing the current moon state.
