To commemorate the 200th independence anniversary of Venezuela, the world’s oldest timepiece maker Vacheron Constantin, which has long enjoyed close ties with South America, is pleased to introduce an exclusive watch, christened Patrimony Contemporaine.
The new Vacheron Constantin watch comes in a single limited series of 19 pieces: ten clothed in rose gold and nine dressed in platinum.
The back side of the model is marked with a special engraving that includes number 19.
The latter implies the day, on which Venezuela declared its independence - April 19th, 1810.
Created in harmony with the noblest traditions of Geneva horology, the new Patrimony Contemporaine watch accommodates a manually-wound mechanical caliber 1400 movement, designed and produced entirely in the brand’s workshops.
This mechanism is granted the Hallmark of Geneva certification, which confirms its exceptional quality.
The movement boasts flat areas, marvelously embellished with a ribbed Cotes de Geneve motif.
The sharp angles are chamfered and then, alongside with all flat screw heads, polished by hand. The caliber serves to display hours and minutes.
The essential functions are immediate and clear on the amazingly pure dial, performed in white.
It features slender hour and minutes hands, circulating serenely over graceful hour-markers and dot-shaped minute-markers. The brand’s logo resides beneath the 12 o’clock hour-marker.
A dark brown leather strap accentuates the irresistible refinement of the new Vacheron Constantin watch.
