Vacheron was established over a century ago, so you could imagine just how much value is put on its historic name. Having just marked its 125th anniversary last year, the luxury watch label has more reason to celebrate with the release of its newest watch, the Patrimony Traditionnelle Self-Winding.
The newest addition to the brand’s collection of fine timepieces matches the new rigorous Hallmark of Geneva requirements that now take into account not just the movement of a watch, but also its entire finish. The face’s pure, clean lines result in beautifully balanced proportions, complete with an opaline silver-toned dial that has 18-karat pink gold-applied hour markers and elegant dauphine hands. Its screw-down case-back is fitted with a sapphire crystal pane— this combined with its slender bezel and impeccable face result in a look of timeless character that Vacheron Constantin is known for.

The timepiece is finished with a chestnut brown alligator strap to keep with the classic look, as well as an 18-karat pink gold pin buckle. The watch’s ultra-thin Calibre 1120, which beats at a frequency of 2.75 Hz, can be seen through the sapphire crystal case to make this watch truly unique. Another rare characteristic of the Patrimony Traditionnelle Self-Winding is that its 41 mm diameter gives it true contemporary dimension, regardless of the elegant slenderness of its profile.
