Time is exhibited on a slate-colored dial with a sand-blasted finish; plus eleven applied baton-shaped hour index markers and one applied Roman numeral for the 12 o’clock position, all made of 18k pink gold. And the wide tourbillion can be seen in all its glory, on the bottom half of the watches dial, aligned with the 6 o’clock position. There is also a sub-seconds ticking away in the midst, held on by the tourbillon carriage, which if you look closely has been shaped as Vacheron’s emblem.
