Many watch brands have begun to do away with labeling their timepieces as either for men or women. It has become much more acceptable to just highlight the size instead of the gender, and let the market flow. But, in the case of this recent “Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Manual-Winding” there might be a clear inclination. Still in current times, aesthetics and personalities can match up with all kinds of materials, even with a luminous Mother-of-Pearl dial and sparkling diamonds.The round 33mm case is made of 18k 5N rose gold with an overall polished finish, which extends onto the lugs, and angular flanks with a thickness of 7.7mm. Mounted to the case is a gold bezel set with 54 round-cut diamonds. The diamonds used by Vacheron Constantin are of exceptional quality. Only stones between IF and VVS are selected for their purity, and between D and G for their color. A clearer diamond tends to be synonymous with higher value.On the flip-side is a sapphire exhibition caseback that allows a view into the inner workings of the mechanical movement. The gold portion has a beaded rim, while the center reveals gears, jewels, and exceptional hand-finished details that comply with the Hallmark of Geneva standards.It comes equipped with a setting-crown adorned by the Maltese cross. All topped by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal on both sides. Water-resistance can reach up to 30 meters (98 feet).Time is exhibited on a white Mother-of-Pearl dial with 18k rose gold hour index markers, placed along a printed railroad-style minute counter. These indexes mimic the brand’s logo at their cardinal points by having cut-aways, while the interposed markers keep a more concise rectangular form.This is a simple but elegant layout with the iconic Maltese Cross logo on the upper-half, while the full brand name and the “GENEVE” reference appear printed underneath. The central dauphine-style hands are made of 18k rose gold without any luminescent filling. All the glow on this particular timepiece emanates from the textured whiteness of the mother-of-pearl dial, plus the sparkling diamonds that classically frame the full composition.
