Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds Watch - Timeless Horological Spirit

Apr 01, 2013
Vacheron Constantin unveils its new Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds watch. The model has been created as a tribute to the brands watches born in the period from the 1930s to the 1950s. It captures the glance by its pure lines and harmonious proportions.

The 950 platinum case, 38 mm in diameter, demonstrates an elegantly slender profile. It incorporates a thin bezel and a fluted screw-down case-back with a sapphire crystal window.

The slate grey dial is completed with applied 18K white gold hour-markers and dauphine hands. It is framed by a painted white minute circle clearly standing out against the dark background. The small seconds are displayed at 6 oclock.

It is remarkable that the new Vacheron Constantin watch corresponds to the requirements of the Poinçon de Genève,the highly prestigious hallmark confined not only to the movement, but the whole finished timepiece.

The Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds is animated by the hand-wound Vacheron Constantin 4400 movement. The finishing and conception of the mechanism reflect its superlative craftsmanship. Oscillating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, the 127-part, 21-jewel movement provides the functions of hours, minutes and small seconds. It gives an advantage of a 65-hour power reserve.

The main flat surfaces of the movement are embellished with a meticulous Côtes de Genève pattern. The angles and the screw heads are bevelled and hand-polished.

The new Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds watch is delivered on a black Mississipiensis alligator leather strap fitted with a 950 platinum pin buckle.

The timepiece is 30-meter water-resistant.
