One of Vacheron Constantin’s most emblematic models now appears in a 36 mm-diameter white gold version suitable for both masculine and feminine wrists. This new interpretation fitted with a leather strap in classic black or a bolder shiny red.
The self-winding Calibre 2450 Q6 is endowed with a 40-hour power reserve and drives the hours, minutes, central seconds as well as an aperture-type date display. A transparent sapphire crystal case-back provides a chance to admire the 22 carats gold oscillating weight adorned with a motif inspired by Vacheron Constantin’s Maltese cross emblem. It also reveals the caliber’s hand finishing. A stop-seconds system guarantees precise adjustment and thus ensures perfect time setting.
The personality of this Patrimony self-winding model is expressed through its delicately convex silvered opaline dial, featuring hands gracefully following the path of time around a circular “pearl” minute-track.
