Shop all Vacheron Constantin watches: http://bit.ly/2GlFsAE The Vacheron Constantin Harmony Complete Calendar (triple calendar) 4000S/000R-B123 is a tribute to the 1920s in a package fit for 21st century watch buyers. The imposing 40mm 5n red gold case is a striking start; the triple calendar moonphase keeps the winning streak alive; a Vacheron Constantin manufacture caliber 2460 QCL finishes this triple calendar triple-play. Vacheron Constantin launched its cushion case Harmony collection at SIHH 2015. The Complete Calendar arrived in 2016 as a second stage for this 1920s-themed shaped watch collection. As with the Jaeger LeCoutre Reverso and Cartier Tank, the Harmony Complete Calendar draws on the fashion sense of the early wristwatch era – a period when the new format left watch designers open to non-round case options. The case is rendered in an intense “5N” 18-karat rose gold, also known as “red gold.” The case is strong but slim at 11mm thick. All gold surfaces are rendered in a high-polish finish. Vacheron articulates the case and avoids a monolithic profile by stepping the bezel upward significantly when compared to the case. A brown full-alligator leather strap (i.e., both top and bottom) and rose gold deployant clasp complete the exterior aesthetic. The Harmony’s dial is a soft opaline silver with accents of red, black, and blue. Handsome assegai, pomme, and lancet hands trace the time, and triple apertures track the day, month, and phase of the moon. A radial / pointer date with lunette in red makes one circuit of the dial per month. The hours are rendered in a late Art Nouveau Arabic numeral font with lush black transferred surfacing. Inside the red gold case, a Vacheron Constantin manufacture caliber 2460 QCL automatic movement keeps the time. It bears the characteristic fine finish and stamp of the Hallmark Geneva, and all elements meet the codified standards of the “poincon.” A 40-hour power reserve, stop seconds (hacking seconds), and a beat rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour ensure that modern watchmaking standards are respected. The Harmony Complete Calendar is water resistant to 30 meters, but you already own an Overseas for that kind of adventure, correct? A true rival to traditional adversaries such as Patek Philippe as well as upstarts such as FP Journe, the Vacheron Constantin Harmony Complete Calendar is a modern watch that encapsulates the best of today’s luxury watches in a package worthy of history’s finest. The Vacheron Constantin Harmony Complete Calendar is encased in 40mm of rose gold surrounding a silver dial on a brown leather strap. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date, day, month, and moon phase. The watch also measures 11.1mm in thickness and 49mm from lug-to-lug. For complete details, watch the full review!
