Malte Tourbillon and Malte small model

Aesthetic restraint and distinctive personality, imposing
and distinguished presence

The Watch Quote™ - April 4th, 2017



Embodying a fascinating blend of aesthetic restraint and distinctive personality, the Malte collection by Vacheron Constantin interprets its iconic tonneau shape through a range of contemporary variations. Two new models – a prestigious tourbillon with a slate-colored dial and a ladies’ watch combining the purity of mother-of-pearl with a vivid fuchsia-colored strap – radiate an imposing and distinguished presence within a curvaceous pink gold case.

The charismatic tonneau (barrel) shape has consistently punctuated Vacheron Constantin’s creative heritage since 1912. At the time, the Manufacture played a pioneering role in adopting this daring format, representing a clean break with the traditional shape of pocket watches. Hugging the wrist to perfection, this distinctive curve is variously expressed through the Malte collection, composed of men’s and ladies’ models that are as understated as they are sophisticated. The Malte aesthetic, reinvented in 2012 and distinguished by harmoniously balanced contemporary lines with pure displays, continues to assert its unique personality that is both classic and original.


Malte small model

18K 5N pink gold, mother-of-pearl dial




Femininity and refinement are the keynotes of the new Malte small model combining the purity of white mother-of-pearl with a vibrant fuchsia-coloured strap. This Hallmark of Geneva certified mechanical manual-winding watch flaunts a pared-down style, housed in an 18K 5N pink gold tonneau-shaped case with smoothly balanced lines. The slightly domed mother-of-pearl dial is graced with slim hands sweeping over ten slender applied pink gold hour-markers. The collection’s two signature Roman numerals at 12 and 6 o’clock underscore an aesthetic that is both classic and contemporary. Fitted with discreet lugs and a sapphire crystal caseback, the curving 28.4 x 38.7 mm case, water-resistant to 30 metres, houses manual-winding Caliber 1400 AS, entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin. This 98-part movement, endowed with a 40-hour power reserve, drives the hours, minutes and small seconds at 6 o’clock. Gently embracing even the daintiest wrist, the lines of this model are beautifully enhanced by the bright glow of its shiny fuchsia-colored alligator leather strap.


Malte Tourbillon

18K 5N pink gold, slate-colored dial




The only Hallmark of Geneva certified tonneau-shaped tourbillon model, this paragon of Fine Watchmaking features a finely curved 38 x 48.2 mm case water-resistant to 30 meters and attired in 18K 5N pink gold. Its stylish appearance is accentuated by a finely sand-blasted slate-coloured dial punctuated by eleven baton-shaped hour-markers and one Roman numeral made of pink gold. At 6 o’clock, the Maltese cross-shaped tourbillon carriage asserts its character and reveals the exceptional level of finishing performed on each of the movement components. The slightly off- centred position of the hours and minutes hands, as well as the low frequency of the movement – 18,000 vibrations per hour – ensure a fine view of the tourbillon bearing the seconds hand. 169 parts compose the tonneau-shaped 2795 caliber, a mechanical hand-winding movement entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, endowed with a 45-hour power reserve.
