Additional Information:
Brand new Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile, Model # 85050/000t-9341. Titanium 41mm x 44mm (51mm lug to lug) case with rubber strap and titanium deploy buckle. Automatic movement. Darker tinted semi-transparent sapphire crystal dial covering a Ruthenium plated movement, giving the dial a dark grey color. Laser engraved “VACHERON CONSTANTIN GENEVE” & some of the hour markers (1,2,4,5,7,8,10,11) & “SWISS MADE” all filled with white ink. Laser engraved Day & Date alpha/numeric digits filled with white ink. Power Reserve Indicator above the 6 o’clock position. Some Laser engraved text without filler. 12,3,6 & 9 Arabic numeral hour markers & the Maltese Cross Logo are applied to the dial by a complex & time consuming process called “Galvanic growth of nickel” which begins with the deposit of base materials on the sapphire crystal & then the build-up of metallic-nickel is done according the desired shapes (in this case the 12,3,6,9 & the Maltese Cross). Once the process is finished the nickle plating is polished & colored in Rhodium or Rose Gold according the desired finish. A process called “Metallization” is sprayed onto the surface of the dial with a fine deposit of white gold to form micro-text around the day & date sub-dials. The micro-text is a translated extract from a letter written by Mr. Jaques-Barthélémy Vacheron on March 21 1829 to his friend & associate Mr. François Constantin. The dial also feature a small “sun” design which is also produces my the “Metallization process”. The "sun design is inspired by the clock on the Tour de l’Ile in Place Bel-Air, in the Saint-Gervais district of Geneva. At one time, all the watchmakers on the square set their watches and clocks by it. Finally “Security Transparent Film” is stuck to the underside of both the crystal protecting the dial & the crystal on the bottom through which the movement is visible. The “Security Transparent Film” has micro-characters, uses security inks & has UV markings using invisible ink which is only visible under UV light. On the dial side, the security transparent film has a pattern of concentric lines representing the spiral of time. These also serve as a seconds track. These lines/rays are printed alternately with light grey and sepia (reddish/brownish) ink or with light grey and white ink – depending on the model. On the movement side, the security transparent film has a pattern of hundreds of Maltese Crosses and concentric circles. Depending on the version, it is printed with white or black ink.
