Ultra-thin Caliber 1120 QP

Caliber 1120 QP developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin drives the hours and minutes hands, the moon phase at 6 o’clock along with a perpetual calendar displaying the day of the week in a counter at 9 o’clock, the date in a counter at 3 o’clock, as well as the month and leap year in a 48-month counter at 12 o’clock. This perpetual calendar is acknowledged by connoisseurs as one of the most iconic of its kind. Miniaturisation has been taken to extremes in achieving an ultra-thin caliber measuring just 4.05 mm thick and endowed with a 40-hour power reserve.

Developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin

INDICATIONS

Hours, minutes, perpeutal calendar (day of the week, date, 48-month counter with leap year indication), moon phase

Key points

Iconic perpetual calendar

Mechanically programmed to cope with all calendar irregularities. It takes account of the leap-year cycle with its months of 31, 30 or 28 days, as well as the periodic return of February 29th. It therefore requires no correction until March 1st 2100.

Elegance and technical refinement

Precious heavenly vault

Revolving beneath the dial, the moon disc depicts the heavenly vault in 18K gold enhanced by a blue galvanic treatment. Each star has been delicately crafted so as to provide an exact map of the sky.

Excellent dial legibility

Elegant finishing

Circular "pearl" minute track, applied hour-markers and hands in 18K pink gold, sapphire crystal case-back: the Patrimony perpetual calendar reflects the aesthetic purity of the collection.
