Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon 6000T Watch Hands-On Hands-On

Some of my favorite new Vacheron Constantin watches for 2018 are these two Traditionnelle Tourbillons (in 18k pink gold or platinum) as references 6000T/000R-B346 and 6000T/000P-B347. The Vacheron Constantin Traditionnelle Tourbillon was also on our list of the top 10 watches of SIHH 2018. If there is anything that historic Swiss Vacheron Constantin does well (in addition to their art watches), it is producing very fine tourbillons. What makes a fine tourbillon in my opinion isn’t about reinventing the tourbillon wheel (that was a terrible quasi-pun) but rather executing it both attractively and with performance in mind. In other words, to make the tourbillon look pretty while providing timing accuracy. The reality of this little “whirlwind” system is that while it was originally designed to theoretically help make clock and pocket watch movements more accurate, in wristwatches a tourbillon can actually make a movement less accurate than one that uses a traditional regulation system.
