Vacheron Constantin: Les Cabinotiers Symphonia Grande Sonnerie 1860 – Sihh

First Grande Sonnerie By Vacheron Constantin

Vacheron Constantin has built his first watch with Grande Sonnerie (pocket watches with this complication existed in the history of the manufactory founded in 1755). With this function, the clockwork strikes the hours and the quarter hours by themselves – in contrast to a repetition, which happens by triggering. With the Les Cabinotiers Symphonia Grande Sonnerie 1860 , the user can choose between the settings Grande Sonnerie, Petite Sonnerie (the small percussion beats only to the full hour) and rest by a slide integrated into the 30 degree rotating bezel.

A minute repetition is also available: it is activated by the trigger in the elevator crown.During a repetition, the required force is actively fed by pressing (here) pushers or pushers, a sonnenie must store the required energy by itself. That is why Vacheron Constantin has given the Symphonia two spring houses: one for the beater (20 hours of reserve, two-hour display), one for the normal time display (72 hours of gear reserve, at five o’clock). Both spring houses are mounted on the same crown, depending on which direction they are turned.

Vacheron Constantin needed ten years of development to develop the 727-piece caliber 1860. It has several safety mechanisms that protect the mechanism from damage – for example, simultaneous ringing and timing is not possible; the user can not set the time during the hitting and thus also nothing can break. A further finesse is the elimination of the “Phantom quarter hours”: If the minute repetition is performed before the first quarter hour, there is no waiting time between the struck hours and minutes. With a diameter of 45 millimeters and a height of 15.1 millimeters, the white gold, which is distinguished by the Geneva mark, remains pleasingly compact. It is a single item that can be ordered from one of the boutiques of Vacheron Constantin. The prize is expected to be around one million euros.
