Traditionnelle tourbillon Japan Special Edition (6000T-000P-B974)

Jan 10, 2023,04:40 AM

I wanted to share a wristshot of my Traditionnelle tourbillon that was made for the 25th anniversary of The Hour Glass in Ginza in fall of 2021.  I think this release may have been overlooked by many as I haven't seen much information published outside of the press release on Vacheron's site -

There were two versions produced, the 6000T-000P-B973 with a rose-engine guilloche dial and the 6000T-000P-B974 with a straight-line guilloche dial.  Both were in a platinum case and shared the same shade of blue on the dial.  They were numbered X / 6 pieces, but I was told that only 5 pieces of each were produced with unlucky #4 being skipped.

I've had mine for a little over a year at this point and it is definitely a favorite in my collection.  The combination of a beautiful guilloche dial, peripheral rotor automatic, and a tourbillon came together to make a very compelling timepiece.  The straight-line dial was my preference of the two, but the rose engine variant was very nice as well - if it was the only choice I think I would've still decided to make the purchase.

Great picture of an amazing watch - One of not many indeed! Really like the guilloche work, it complements the grey-blue color on the dial very well. Thanks for sharing, Jerome

I wrote a review about this watch a few years ago and it's stuck with me. What a wonderful watch! Congrats on acquiring this lovely piece. I've had the pleasure of meeting the fella who does the guilloche at the factory.

Stunning! A beauty this traditionelle!
