• Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon (Ref. 89000/000R-9655): Building on its experience, Vacheron Constantin has chosen to explore a new path by developing a tourbillon calibre as pure as the case housing it, while displaying performances unequalled in the realm of this complication. The Vacheron Constantin movement design engineers and watchmakers thus cooperated in developing a new mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement – Calibre 2260 – endowed with an exceptional 14-day power reserve. Above and beyond the practical utility of this comfortable power reserve, the regulating organ fitted inside the tourbillon results in a watch displaying improved rating precision and enhanced long-term stability.
