Vacheron Constantin Patrimony, 40mm with Gold Bracelet (Reference: 81180/CB1R-9159)

Swiss luxury watch maker Vacheron Constantin introduces a new version of its iconic Patrimony 40 mm model by adorning it with an 18K 5N gold bracelet. The latter, a true Fine Watchmaking classic, endows the watch with a particularly precious character and makes a seamless fit with the case.
With the superbly slender silhouette of its 6.8 mm case and a heart beating to the rhythm of a mechanical manual-winding in-house movement, the Patrimony model reflects horological tradition and appears in an even more refined guise in this new version with gold bracelet.
Endowed with a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour) and an approximately 40-hour power reserve, Caliber 1400 housed by the Patrimony timepiece is distinguished by meticulously chamfered bridges adorned with Côtes de Genève, as well as a circular-grained base-plate. This exceptional caliber is housed in an 18K 5N pink gold case measuring 40 mm in diameter.
Accentuating the slim lines of the collection, the silvered opaline dial is distinguished by a slightly convex external area. Enjoying excellent legibility thank to a broad opening, the dial is enhanced by discreet hour-markers and a pearl minute-track. The baton-type hands, also in 18K 5N pink gold, further highlights the refinement to this timepiece, accentuated by the emblematic Maltese cross.
