The Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600 wins the Mechanical Exception Watch Prize in the 2017 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève
Wednesday November 8th 2017 – The Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève has awarded the Mechanical Exception Watch Prize to Vacheron Constantin’s Les Cabinotiers Celestia Astronomical Grand Complication 3600.
Five years of development and the involvement of a dedicated master-watchmaker were required to create this exceptional model that pushes the limits of innovation and excellence.
This tourbillon watch with a three-week power reserve features 23 essentially astronomical complications appearing on the front and back dials, providing time read-off in three modes – civil, solar and sidereal – each driven by its own gear train.
This model acknowledged by the industry, collectors and connoisseurs for its engineering and its technical sophistication houses a fully integrated 514-part calibre measuring a mere 8.7 mm thick.
