Quai de l & rsquo; lle

The Quai de l & rsquo; Ile watch series attracted great attention from the industry when it was launched in 2008, and the 2011 new model will undoubtedly become the focus of attention. Quai de l & rsquo; Ile series of contemporary design brings unprecedented personalization to the high-end watch industry.

This new movement combines two outstanding complex technologies into one, and the function of displaying the annual calendar with flyback hands, no doubt, the movement also casts the distinguished Geneva mark. World Clock Network

A combination of rare and extremely useful features!
The annual calendar is one of the most useful complication because it takes into account the deviation of the number of days in different months. Compared to the 31-day calendar display that needs to be adjusted almost every two months, the mechanical programming of the annual calendar can identify and adjust the gap in the number of days, so that it only needs to be adjusted once a year in special circumstances in February. This feature is already excellent, and Vacheron Constantin displays it on the new Quai de l & rsquo; Ile watch with flyback hands. The perfect combination of the two highlights the brand’s watchmaking technology.

The 2460 QRA movement is the result of the conception, development and manufacturing of Vacheron Constantin’s watchmakers and design engineers. The certification of the Geneva Seal ensures that the movement fully complies with the requirements of precision decoration and structure. The 2460 QRA movement, consisting of 326 parts, drives the hours, minutes and small seconds at 9 o’clock, as well as the flyback annual calendar display, the month and a high-precision moon phase profit and loss display that only needs to be adjusted once in 122 years. . And configure a ‘stop seconds’ device to ensure that the time can be set accurately. In addition, the watch has a 40-hour power reserve and a vibration frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 times per hour). This self-winding mechanical movement incorporates a oscillating weight welded to a ceramic ball bearing. The distinctive design highlights the innovative spirit of the Quai de l & rsquo; Ile watch series. Made of ruthenium-plated 22K gold, the simple lines are complemented by five decorative fillets for pure beauty.

A distinct modern personality watch brand
The Quai de l & rsquo; Ile flyback calendar watch with a 43 mm diameter case further highlights the contemporary personality of the collection. The original cushion-shaped case, with screw-fastened sapphire crystal glass, reinterprets a classic watch shape in a contemporary way. Just like classic cars, they are constantly being redesigned to meet the development trend of the current era. The case of the Quai de l & rsquo; Ile watch not only vividly reflects an epoch-making concept of watchmaking, but also echoes the spirit of Vacheron Constantin’s continuous innovation. Pursuing streamlined shapes and perfect visual curves, combining bold and confident personality and dynamic lines of hidden objects, Vacheron Constantin’s designers once again surpassed these boundaries and designed this style that represents Vacheron Constantin’s personalized concept.

Quai de l & rsquo; Ile Flyback Calendar has pink gold, white gold or a mix of pink and white gold, highlighting the important ‘individual’ design concept of this series. Customers can match and create their own models within the established selection range. Through the unique and extraordinary case design of the Quai de l & rsquo; Ile series, it provides customers with a unique and unprecedented experience in the high-end watch industry. It replaces a single case component with a seven-component structure: the lateral surface components at 3 and 9 , Lug assembly at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, lug attachment assembly at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock, and a support plate. In addition, the 43 mm diameter case includes a bezel, case back and crown. Combining certain dial elements, Vacheron Constantin’s Quai de l & rsquo; Ile watch series can provide customers with 700 different combinations.

The new Quai de l & rsquo; Ile flyback calendar watch debuts with a new dial design: the central part of the dial is decorated with frosted vertical decorative pattern, with the milky white hour and minute scale outer ring, and the date and month sub-dial. When the Quai de l & rsquo; Ile series was launched in 2008, it combined pioneering watchmaking technology with advanced top-secret ‘safe printing’ technology to create a precedent and caused a major response in the industry. The ‘sun pattern’ painted with metal-plating technology is the key to highlighting the safety of the series, inspired by the ‘Island Clock Tower’ (Tour de l & rsquo; Ile) in Geneva. Between 4 o’clock and 5 o’clock on the new watch, the sun pattern is made of invisible ink and can only be seen under UV light. This series highlights the modern personality of high-end watches, and the new dial design can be applied to the customization of all Quai de l & rsquo; lle watches, whether it is the new Quai de l & rsquo; Ile flyback annual calendar watch, Both the Quai de l & rsquo; lle calendar watch and the Quai de l & rsquo; lle power reserve date watch can be customized with this dial.

The Quai de l & rsquo; Ile Flyback Calendar comes with two straps: a black or brown crocodile leather strap, and a black or brown rubber strap with 18K pink or white gold folding clasp.
