Vacheron Constantin’s 10-piece Harmony collection demonstrates the craftsmanship for which the brand has been renowned since its founding in 1755. Each watch in this series features impressive technical capabilities carefully housed in a unique and aesthetically pleasing cushion-shaped case, combining the art of design with precise time measurement.

The Harmony Collection’s handsome tourbillon chronographs impressively combine beauty and functionality. The tourbillon has been expertly shaped like a Maltese cross, a signature Vacheron Constantin emblem, and is operated by the manual-winding Calibre 3200 developed in-house.


The Vacheron Constantin Harmony tourbillon chronograph, here in pink gold, comes with a dark brown alligator leather strap.

The seven years it took to perfect this model was evidently, time well spent. Whether visible or concealed, every detail is meticulously refined and purposefully designed, as seen in the 292 components of the watch, and 39 jewels encased in a transparent sapphire crystal case. Lucerne, Glorietta 4, 728.2828.
