You can check out last week's releases here.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon China
The first of two new incredible releases from Vacheron Constantin. The Traditionnelle Tourbillon China Limited Edition draws inspiration from Chinese Jade culture and is dressed entirely in Imperial Green, a colour that represents the purest and highest frade of green jadeite, which looks incredible against that 18K 5N pink gold case.
Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Complete Calendar
Vacheron Constantin's second release in this week's edition is the fabulous Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Openface. Available in either a white or pink gold case, the new Traditionnelle Complete Calendar Openface is an incredible depiction of the might of Vacheron Constantin. The dial is another amazing feat of watchmaking. Assembled in three parts, the dial has a slate grey guilloche upper part, a slate grey opaline flange with a sapphire crystal with 18K gold hour-markers. Completely out of left field but what a wonderful way to round off a super successful year for Vacheron.
Armin Strom Zeitgeist
To celebrate five years of Resonance technology, Armin Strom has unveiled the incredible piece unique Zeitgeist. The Zeitgeist's focal point is Armin Strom's patented Resonance Clutch Spring, sitting perfectly in that 43mm wide platinum case. We've got elements of minimalism and complexity in a package that is of the upmost haute horlogerie significance.
Roger Dubuis Opens Up Shop In Sydney
Roger Dubuis has officially opened its doors right here in Sydney. Located on Castlereagh Street, the new boutique offers an incredible and incomparable look into the contemporary and highly complicated world of the maison. Definitely worth a visit.
