Traditionnelle World Time Simultaneous Reading Of All World Time Zones Gold Maps Are Even More Eye-catching

Vacheron Constantin launched two new Traditionnelle world time watches in 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold this year with gold maps at the center of the dial. Inside the case is a 2460 WT caliber developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. This patented self-winding mechanical movement displays the time in 37 time zones around the world, including time zones that are half an hour or fifteen minutes from UTC.
   Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle World Time highlights a feature that is inextricably linked to the history of the brand: World Time. Since Jean-Marc Vacheron and his descendants often need to distribute timepieces to customers around the world, this feature has been linked to travel. As a pioneer in the development and creation of new timepieces, the brand has demonstrated its openness and tolerance towards the world. Vacheron Constantin was founded in Geneva in 1755, and has continued production for 260 years since then, and has grown rapidly around the world: in the United States in 1832 and in China in 1845-even before the International Meridian Conference held in Washington in 1884 It is this conference that divides the Earth into 24 time zones and uses the Greenwich Meridian as the zero meridian reference. This new method of calculation is essential for evolving international travel and railways.
Vacheron Constantin’s long history of world time
   Adhering to the brand’s pioneering spirit and commitment to creating the perfect multi-time zone timepiece, Vacheron Constantin presented its first timepiece with a world time zone function in 1932. Its movement was produced by a Geneva watch wizard, Louis Cottier, who conceived and designed a mechanical movement that could display 24 time zones. The rotating dial in the center of the dial indicates from 1 to 24 time zones. The outer bezel bears the names of the world’s major cities. Vacheron Constantin’s first world time clock with the ‘Cottier’ system can read the time in 31 cities around the world at the same time. It marks Vacheron Constantin’s rich and long history in the field of world time complication. In 1936, the brand launched two more world time clocks with dials showing the time in 31 cities and 30 cities. In 1937 and 1938, the Geneva-based brand introduced six table clocks with a mobile dial design that displayed time in 67 regions. Since the 1940s, Vacheron Constantin introduced the world time clock with the reference number 4414. The dial can display 41 city times, and the 24-hour mobile dial has two areas: day and night. During the 1940s and 1950s, this superb mechanism became the target of many celebrities, making this new complex feature famous.
   In 1957, Vacheron Constantin wrote a new chapter in the history of its world timepieces, introducing the first 6213 world time watch, which was customized by an Egyptian nobleman.
Patented World Time Movement
   In order for this complication movement to make history again, Vacheron Constantin’s watchmakers and engineers began to create a mechanical movement that can display not only the entire time zone, but also part of the time zone, to show the trueness of all 37 time zones time. Although only a few countries in the world currently adopt a time difference of half an hour or fifteen minutes from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), Vacheron Constantin’s 2460 WT movement still incorporates these special cases into the design. Taking Caracas as an example, Venezuela adjusted the entire time zone to half time (GMT-4:30) in 2007. This movement can correctly display the local time of Caracas.
   Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle World Time shows the time in 37 time zones around the world, covering all imaginable regions. The display area consists of three dials: a sapphire dial with day and night shade levels, and a 24-hour scale engraved and ink-printed (indicating area between 18: 30-6: 30 with a gray coal background); the metal dial is painted with the city The name and the gold map made by the Lambert Projector method. The bright face is divided into land and the frosted part is ocean. The metal outer ring is painted with minute scales and gold-plated hour markers. The vibration frequency is 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), with a 40-hour power reserve. The 2460 WT self-winding mechanical movement can display hours, minutes, central seconds and world time, and can also read the time in various regions of the world at the same time. The gold world map in the center of the dial is equipped with day and night indications. This advanced complication table is extremely easy to operate, and the indicator functions can be adjusted simply by turning the crown. With this unique design, Vacheron Constantin 2460 WT movement and its 37 time zone time display, day and night indicator and crown full adjustment function have been patented, while the movement is also engraved with the prestigious Geneva mark.
Simple operation and easy to wear
   Despite its complicated construction principles, the operation of this world-time mechanical movement is extremely convenient. The wearer only needs to select the required reference time to adjust to the black triangle mark facing the 6 o’clock position, and can read the standard time of the desired place by the hour hand or 24-hour dial, while the time in the other 36 time zones will be Can read at the same time. The cities shown in black represent the entire time zone, and the cities shown in red represent cities in the half or quarter time zone.
