Vacheron Constantin Malte Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine Ref. 30130/000P-9876 – A Visual Feast

The Caliber 2795, developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin is a manual-winding movement made out of 169 small intricate components. This 27 jewel masterpiece is a tourbillon and operates at the 2.5 Hz or 18,000 vibrations/hour range. The main springs has approximately 45 hours power reserve.

Taking this beautiful movement, Vacheron Constantin married it into a 950 platinum curving 38 x 48.24 casing. This tonneau-shaped movement perfectly tailored to the case. Hence the birth of a 50 unit production run of the Malte Tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine.

The dial comes in a sandblasted finish with white gold Roman numerals and hour-markers. The mesmerizing tourbillon bearing the seconds hand sits at the 6 o’clock position.

The display case back with the large bridge in the center, gives an impression that the heart of the movement, the toubillon, has its own separate location compared to the rest of the mechanism. Regardless of the actual setup of the Caliber, it is a visual feast.

Whoever has the opportunity to get this watch is a very lucky person.
