Purity meets manufacture-style elegance in this beautifully nuanced interpretation of the Patrimony collection enshrining the full range of Vacheron Constantin talents. An apparently classic yet intrinsically complex watch offering peerless refinement, intended for the most expert and discerning connoisseurs.
This slender 6.8mm thick case asserts its own demands, such as curving hands sweeping around the gently domed dial and embracing its own curves. Despite the constraints and aesthetic tensions of this distinctive design, the watch is endowed with a comfortable 40-hour power reserve. The in-house-crafted spirit is also reflected in the applied hour-markers, including cone-shaped quarter-hour-markers engaging in an elegant dialogue with the signature ‘pearl’ minute track.
The Patrimony collection had never yet been graced with azure. The sunburst finish lends a fascinating shimmer to the subtle midnight-blue shade of the dial. The pin buckle securing the midnight blue alligator leather strap picks up the Vacheron Constantin emblem immediately recognizable by connoisseurs. The solid caseback may be personalized at will to make this watch the companion of precious and elegant moments.
Caliber 1400 remains a model of efficiency by fitting all 98 finely decorated components inside a space merely mere 2.6mm thick. Corresponding to a 4-hertz frequency, its oscillating rate of 28,800 vibrations/hour guarantees first-rate precision.
