Vacheron Constantin: Quai de l’Ile19 May 2017
Vacheron Constantin enriches his collection presenting the Quai de l’Ile, a new model in steel that gets the name from the historical site of the maison located at the heart of Geneva.
Designed for an active lifestyle, the new Quai de l’Ile is presented with a steel 41 mm case and a mechanical self-winding movement. Entirely designed, developed and crafted in-house, the Calibre 5100 drives the hours, minutes, central seconds and date functions with over 60-hour power reserve.
The blue dial features a multi-level construction and is teamed with an opaline finish. Composed of three distinct parts, its display with its innovative depth effects ensures remarkable legibility thanks to its hour-markers and Arabic numerals entirely made of white luminescent material. Another distinctive feature is the replacement of the traditional aperture-type date by a two-level date indication. A sapphire disc at the dial centre displays the days of the month. The date disc of Calibre 5100 appears beneath this transparent dial and features an indicator which points towards the correct date.
This new stainless steel Quai de l’Ile model, water-resistant to 30 metres, is delivered with a blue alligator leather or blue rubber strap, firmly secured to the wrist with a steel folding clasp.
