In the Malte Chronograph line, we can see everything that is great about Vacheron Constantin Watches. As one of Europe's oldest and most respected watchmakers, this company literally helped define the modern standard of class in fine watches. The Malte Chronograph line of watches show this in every detail, epitomizing the qualities that watch enthusiasts admire. The style is beautiful, uncluttered and efficient. The workmanship is exceptional, the technical precision impeccable.
The Malte Chronograph comes in two case shapes, round and the well-known tonneau shape seen in many other Vacheron Constantin watches. Here we see the round dial done in both rose gold and platinum, the first being slightly warmer and the second having a cooler feel. Even the lugs holding the band are stylized so that they, too, become part of the sculpture of this luxury timepiece.
In the Malte Chronograph watches, the two dials of the chronograph feature are at 3 and 9, while the lunar phase indicator and date dial are both incorporated into the small dial above 6. Notice that there is also a small window for day and month under 12. There is even a tiny leap year indicator between 1 and 2.
In the tonneau-shaped models in the Malte Chronograph line, each luxury timepiece has a small second hand at 6 and the two chronograph dials at 3 and 9. A date window is under 12.
As we can see, this exquisite design from Vacheron Constantin Watches works equally well in platinum, white gold and silver. Regardless of the material used, each luxury timepiece in the Malte Chronograph line is a design triumph.
