A perfect fit for both men’s and women’s wrists, the new 36 mm-diameter case of the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony small model will make happy many watch enthusiasts which never liked the trend for increasingly large watches.
The alligator strap can change the overall look of this super classic timepiece crafted from pink gold: a purple shiny alligator leather makes it colourful and feminine while the dark brown version is the choice for those who prefer a discreet elegance.
Bearing the Hallmark of Geneva to certify its quality, the Patrimony small model 36mm
features beautifully balanced, pure lines which frame a slightly domed silvered opaline dial with slender baton-type hands sweeping over tapering pink gold applied hour-markers and a “pearl” minute-track.
The transparent sapphire crystal caseback offers a view of the mechanical self-winding Calibre 2450 Q6 movement and its 22K gold oscillating weight.
Driving the central hours, minutes and seconds functions as well as the aperture-type date display, it beats at 4 Hz (28,800 vph) while ensuring a 40-hour power reserve. It also features a stop-seconds device operating during time-setting, a solution which enhances precision.
Entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, this movement is finished according to the highest standards of Haute Horlogerie finishing.
