Launching of new ultra-thin movements at EPHJ 2019

Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier is expanding its range of ultra-thin movements and offer of development proposals for complications and modules

Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier is launching two new designs of its flagship ultra-thin, micro-rotor caliber, the Seed VMF 5401. Contemporary or classic, we presents two movements based on the same architecture. Our company thus extends its range with this new, attractive offer.

Classic or contemporary, a movement for every watch

Takahiro Hamaguchi, Director of Development and Production, explains this approach as a real desire to offer more choices to meet current trends: “We can see that micro-brand models become strongly established, whether they are classic, hyper technical, or even avant-garde. We want to get closer to what they need, because right now they can’t access the extensive customization that normally starts from 150 pieces.” By putting our customization know-how into creating movement variants for smaller brands, we are now offering a wider choice of visually appealing combinations to better match a watch’s intended design and style.

Technical specifications Seed VMF 5401/32 & 5401/33

Ultra-thin micro-rotor calibers

The Seed VMF 5401 caliber is an ultra-thin, 2.6mm micro-rotor. This caliber with its potential for extreme personalization figures in, for example, prestigious collections by Hermès, Parmigiani and Richard Mille.
The Seed VMF 5401/32 variant offers lines and finishes from the pure tradition of Haute Horlogerie. It is intended for classic high-end models.
The Seed VMF 5401/33 variant takes on a contemporary look through new decoration technologies, with laser relief engraving combined with geometric skeletonization. Its modernity is also expressed by the anthracite color produced by galvanic treatment.
