The watch is all about the 18k gold dial with its intricate hand-guilloché pattern. With a variety of skills sitting in-house, Vacheron has a real pedigree in métiers d’art and high-end finishing, which come together in this piece. The Traditionnelle is undoubtably subdued, but here the combination of those razor sharp Dauphine hands and the guilloché dial is magic. In a rose, pentagon pattern, it gives the dial a depth and intrigue – a kind of “look at little closer” vibe. The overall package is nicely balanced, with small seconds at nine o’clock and a date display at three o’clock. The manufacture caliber 2455 is Geneva Hallmark stamped and has a 40-hour power reserve.  At 38mm (isn’t that the sweet spot, Mr. Cho?),  with a cracking dial and green  alligator leather strap, there isn’t much to grumble about at all.
