Vacheron Constantin’s barrel-type case Malta watch is one of the brand’s iconic models, and has been loved by many people since 1912. At this year’s Geneva watch show, Vacheron Constantin’s Malte Malta collection adds four new members: a white gold men’s watch and three women’s mechanical watches. Today, let’s take a look at one of the white gold men’s watches, made of 18K white gold, following the consistent simple style of the series, showing a truly low-key luxury. Official model: 82230 / 000G-9962
In 1912, Vacheron Constantin completely broke the circular design of pocket watches with absolute innovation, and became one of the first watch manufacturers to adopt barrel-shaped cases. Since then, the barrel design has become a classic style of Vacheron Constantin, which has attracted countless gentlemen and ladies. Over the past century, the barrel design has gradually merged with the most noble watchmaking technology, creating the immortal legend of Vacheron Constantin’s Malte series.
The new Malte men’s watch follows the simple and clean style, and the exquisite curves create a perfect and harmonious overall shape. The case is made of 18K white gold and measures 36.7 x 47.6 mm. The Roman numerals and hour markers at 6 and 12 o’clock are also made of white gold, cleverly catering to the barrel-shaped curved lines, becoming the classic icon of the Malte.
The hours and minutes are indicated by white gold hands on the silver sandblasted dial, and the Vacheron Constantin logo is engraved at 12 o’clock.
At 6 o’clock, there is a small seconds dial, which is simple and elegant, showing the watchmaking art of pure watches, so that each part of the watch reaches the perfect ratio, reflecting the ultimate simplicity of watchmaking philosophy.
From the side, the smooth and elegant curved lines show the charm of the other side of the watch, and the classic barrel-shaped case has been passed down for centuries. The single crown is located in the middle of the case, and the top of the crown is decorated with a classic Maltese iron cross.
The new Malte watch comes with a black Mississippi alligator strap and a semi-Maltese cross-shaped white gold buckle. The watch is water-resistant to 30 meters.
Through the transparent bottom cover, you can see the 4400 manual winding movement, which drives the hour, minute and small seconds to run smoothly. It consists of 127 parts and has a power reserve of about 65 hours. The 4400 movement is famous for its numerous fine manufacturing processes, and is engraved with the Geneva mark, which symbolizes excellent watchmaking skills, ensuring the reliability and superb craftsmanship of the movement.
Summary: This new Malte men’s watch follows the consistent minimalist style of the series. Its simplicity and purity have a noble temperament. The barrel-type transparent design allows the brand’s carefully crafted manual winding movement to be seen at a glance, allowing users to learn more about their watches. The new 18K white gold material makes consumers have more choices. The price of this watch is expected to be similar to the price of the previously launched rose gold models. Friends who like it may wish to check out the nearby Vacheron Constantin store and believe that they will be there soon.
