Integrated automatic column wheel chronograph

Basic information

The chronograph is without doubt one of the most popular complications, yet chronograph movements are a rare breed in the world of Haute Horlogerie, being among the most complex to design and manufacture. A manufacture specialized in the production of high-end mechanical movements on an industrial scale, Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier (VMF) adds a new caliber to its wide range of movements, unveiling a high-performance integrated column-wheel chronograph, the Seed VMF 6710. A masterpiece of engineering and micromechanics, the caliber 6710 is the result of 6 years of development. It incorporates the best practices from existing chronographs and introduces several innovations for optimal efficiency, reliability, precision and robustness. Its design combines high-frequency, a column-wheel command, a vertical clutch and a triple return-to-zero hammer.
