Vacheron Constantin reveals Quai de l'Ile Annual Calendar

First published: 17-11-2010

Luxury watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has announced an updated version of its Quai de l'Ile timepiece.

With the first model establishing a technologically-innovative and youthful construction, the company hopes to build on this through the design decisions of the Quai de l'Ile Annual Calendar, Hodinkee reported.

One feature which fans of Vacheron Constantin – a company with over 250 years of experience having formed in the city of Geneva in 1755 – may notice is the new caliber.

Housed inside an elegant 43mm case made from either a choice of pink or white gold, or both combined if so desired, the new Quai de l'Ile offers a 40-hour power reserve and a moon phase indicator which only needs correction once every 122 years.

A wealth of customisation can also be had with this timepiece, as the news source reports that up to 700 variations is offered, including the option of lateral flanks at the three and nine o'clock locations, as well as a finish of either a rubber or leather strap.
