[Shanghai, July 15th, 2021] Swiss Haute Horlogerie manufacturer Vacheron Constantin is unveiling the Traditionnelle manual-winding, China limited edition as a tribute to the romantic season. Limited in 100 pieces for Mainland China, this creation is launched exclusively for the China Valentine’s Day, Qixi. This slender and elegant timepiece is dressed in pink gold with an opal purple glints colored mother-of-pearl dial worn on a plum purple alligator leather strap.

“Qixi Festival”
Originated from the ancient Chinese mythology, the “Qixi Festival (Chinese Valentine’s Day)” celebrates the annual rendez-vous of the legendary couple, Cowherd and Weaving Maiden, on the Magpie Bridge. At the romantic time being, the hydrangeas are in full bloom in different shades of purple, therefore the festival is also known as “Purple Valentine’s Day” in China. Weaving Maiden possesses marvelous weaving skills, that she weaved the clouds into a rainbow. Purple, being the last color of the rainbow, represents not only the longing of two lovers to reunite, but also the eternal commitment towards each other as it extends into infinity. The color Purple is also a synonym for nobility and elegance in Chinese culture. In celebration of this year’s Chinese Valentine’s Day, Vacheron Constantin has dedicated its watchmaking expertise of 266 years to the new Traditionnelle manual-winding China Limited Edition, which manifests the craftsmanship of timeless classic with yet a poetic allure.

The texture of the mother-of-pearl dial takes on a subtle purple glow, reminiscent of ripples felt in lovers’ hearts at the sight of each other. The 54 brillant-cut diamonds on the bezel shine bright, surrounding the dial seamlessly which symbolizes the lovers’ care and companionship. The round-shaped case represents a perfect circle, which signifies reunion and completeness in Chinese. Every little detail of this timepiece relays the best wishes to the loved ones during the romantic festival.

Among Vacheron Constantin’s collections, Traditionnelle perpetuates the elegant and refined style of the Maison while remaining true to its technical vocation as a watchmaker. These timepieces pay tribute to the history of a Manufacture that has established itself in the field of High Watchmaking with watches featuring an assertive and perfectly mastered classicism. Round cases, fine lines, subtly harmonious displays and high-quali-ty finishing are just some of the characteristics of this collection recalling the finest hours of Geneva’s Haute Horlogerie.
