This watch I want to introduce to you today is a special watch manufactured by Vacheron Constantin to celebrate the 250th anniversary. Tourdel’Ile is arguably one of the most complicated models. Its design engineers have created a movement that combines many of the most sophisticated functions with astronomical displays, making it a treasure on the wrist.
There are only a few brands that can really make such a complicated and delicate watch in the entire watch field. The Tourdel’Ile watch made by Vacheron Constantin is the best among them. It not only opens up a new technical field for the high-end watch industry, but also reveals the brand’s endless potential.
Looking closely we can see the hand-engraved gold dial of the watch, and on the dial we can also see a series of sophisticated complications. The picture shows the tourbillon device at 6 o’clock on the front of the watch, and the small second hand is on the tourbillon.
The moon phase profit and loss display at 3 o’clock on the watch, the charming dark blue night sky moon phase profit and loss display shows the golden moon carved by hand.
The small dial of the watch at 1 o’clock shows the torsional force of the mechanical mechanism, that is, the winding condition of the three-question device. In addition to a pair of slightly off-center hour and minute hands gliding on the minute scale circle, the dial also features a power reserve display at nine o’clock and a hand-engraved Poinçon de Genève Geneva premium stamp. Six precision devices interweave a harmonious picture on the upper dial. They perform their respective functions and clearly display the functions day and night.
Compared to the complexity of the front dial of the watch, the back of the watch is not simple at all. The front and back dials echo each other, showing a very attractive, deep and amazing shape. The upper part of the dial is a perpetual calendar. The three sub dials are arranged in a triangle, from left to right, showing the day, month and date. Placed in the temporary position is a small window showing the leap year.
The back of the watch and its precise sky map can only be seen from a telescope on the planetarium, which is a rare opportunity to see the map of the northern hemisphere. This precision machine accurately displays changes in celestial phenomena such as astral activity, so that you can enjoy the charming night sky during the day.
Due to the complexity of the watch, the thickness of the watch reached 17.8 mm. Instead of putting a slide switch in the middle of the case to activate the three-minded mechanism, the watch adopted a new method: grasp the gold buckles on both sides of the bezel, and distribute the power to the thumb and index finger to make the winding Easier and smoother operation.
This complex watch is equipped with a cal. 2750 manual-winding movement, consisting of a total of more than 834 parts and a total of more than 10,000 hours of research and development. This watch combines three major complications of the watch industry and the most mysterious astrological chart display, and it really deserves to be one of the most complicated watches.
Summary: This Tourdel’Ile is limited to 7 pieces, made of 18K pink gold (5N). Each one not only has an independent production number, but the dial on the back is decorated with a unique mobile phone engraved pattern, so each one Watches are unique and even more precious.
