May 20, 2011
The new Vacheron Constantin Atelier Cabinotiers collection gets a new member - Vladimir watch. Its name stems from the ancient term Volodimir, which means “peace to all”.


Appealing and function-packed, the new Vacheron Constantin unique watch is proposed with a 47mm case, rendered in 18K 5N pink gold. Its top is shielded by a convex glare-proofed sapphire crystal. The side of the timepiece is hand-engraved with 12 Chinese zodiac signs in bas-relief. The back part of the model is engraved with “Les Cabinotiers” identification and “AC” Hallmark.

Enclosed in the case is an 18K white gold dial, guilloched by hand. It is completed with a minute-track painted in white and 8 applied hour-markers in 18K pink gold.

The display of the new Vacheron Constantin Atelier Cabinotiers Vladimir watch provides an impressive array of functions. In addition to the standard indication of hours and minutes, it offers a 60-second tourbillon mechanism, featured at 6 o’clock.

At 3 o’clock the user can admire a moon-phase display. It sports a hand-engraved gold moon on a blue sky. To its right, there is a smaller counter with a small blued hand. It indicates the striking mechanism torque that is whether the minute repeater mechanism is activated.

At 11 o’clock the dial exhibits a second time-zone with a day/night indicator. At 9 o’clock the watch face demonstrates a power reserve display allied with a 52-week indicator.

The new Vacheron Constantin Atelier Cabinotiers Vladimir watch is powered by a hand-wound mechanical 2750 caliber movement. Stamped with the Hallmark of Geneva, it measures 36mm in diameter. Adorned with 38 jewels, the movement operates at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour and offers a 58-hour power reserve.

Keeping the model secured to the wearer’s wrist is brown hand-stitched alligator leather strap with saddle finish. It joins to a buckle in 18K 5N pink gold.

Creating the new Vacheron Constantin watch required all the attention and virtuosity of more than 20 esteemed craftsmen.
