Vacheron Constantin – Traditionnelle Twin Beat Perpetual Calendar

By Roberta Naas

Only a brand as prestigious as Vacheron Constantin could create a watch as complicated and as revolutionary as its newest masterpiece, the Traditionnelle Twin Beat Perpetual Calendar. This watch has so many technological advancements — as well as two balances and 480 parts — packed into its 42mm case that it boggles the mind.

The Caliber 3610 QP offers the world’s first-ever user-controlled ability to beat at two different frequencies (5Hz when in Active and 1.2Hz when in Standby mode) thanks to twin balance wheels. This enhances both the length of the power reserve and efficiency of the movement.

When Standby mode is activated using a patent-pending transition system, the lower frequency unlocks an unbelievable 65 days of power reserve. This means the wearer can put down the watch for two months and come back to a fully functional, accurate timepiece. Paired with a perpetual calendar, which requires multiple corrections when it loses accuracy, this technology is even more useful.

Price: $199,000 in platinum
