Vacheron Constantin New Patrimony Small Model 36mm

Vacheron Constantin presents the new Patrimony small model whose 36 mm diameter case ideally suits for both men’s and women’s wrists. This new interpretation flaunts a colourful touch with a pink gold case, fitted with a purple shiny alligator leather strap, while those with a preference for discreet elegance will opt for the dark brown alligator version.
This Hallmark of Geneva certified new model features beautifully balanced, pure lines framing a slightly domed silvered opaline dial. Slender baton-type hands follow the dance of time, sweeping over tapering pink gold applied hour-markers and a “pearl” minute-track.
The transparent sapphire crystal caseback provides an opportunity to admire the intricate mechanics of time adorned with distinctive Haute Horlogerie finishing. The mechanical self-winding Caliber 2450 Q6 movement, entirely developed and manufactured by Vacheron Constantin, drives the central hours, minutes and seconds functions as well as the aperture-type date display, while ensuring a 40-hour power reserve.
It also features a stop-seconds device operating during time-setting and thereby guaranteeing the precision of its adjustment. A 22K gold oscillating weight adorned with a Maltese cross symbol sets the perfect finishing touch to the aesthetic appeal of this new model.
