The next incredible fact is, that this watch is actually the world’s thinnest monopusher chronograph watch. Everything is due to the masterpiece Caliber 3500 mechanical self-winding movement developed and crafted by Vacheron Constantin. Its thickness of 5.20 mm testifies about the greatest watchmaking artistry.

The chronograph features a sophisticated complications like second and minute counter in sub-dials at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock. At 6 o’clock we can see the semi-circular power reserve indicator.
