|Rating: 58 %1000 with 375 votes|
The Patrimony line encapsulates Vacheron Constantin’s very DNA, its heritage and its savoir-faire, patiently accumulated for over 250 years. It is also a symbol of the purest kind of elegance, a recognised and longstanding signature of Vacheron Constantin.
With its round cases and timeless classicism, the Patrimony is rooted in the purest tradition of watchmaking.
The Traditionnelle line of the Patrimony collection, which was introduced in 2007, is inspired by the aesthetic features that have distinguished some of Vacheron Constantin’s most beautiful historical models.
Stamped with purism and rigour, it also adheres to those fundamental values which are important for true connoisseurs and which distinguish the Geneva Manufacture’s most exclusive pieces.
A fine bezel, knurling around the screw-down sapphire crystal back, faceted trapezoid hourmarkers, dauphine hands and dials in several historically-inspired shades of silver, and a tiered case and horns with pure, straight lines. These identifying characteristics of the Patrimony Traditionnelle line, expressed in a contemporary style, remind us that tradition and modernity are natural bedfellows at Vacheron Constantin.
All the new models in the Patrimony Traditionnelle line meet these clearly defined characteristics. As a result, this prestige line can house a mechanical movement that features a small seconds as well as a major complication.
The Manufacture’s engineers, designers and master watchmakers use this line as a vehicle to express the very best of the Vacheron Constantin tradition.
A new example of this dynamic is offered with this year’s launching of some new exceptional timepieces in the Patrimony Traditionnelle line, timepieces that express Vacheron Constantin’s savoir-faire and its commitment to the patient construction of a reference line.
The Patrimony Traditionnelle line is offering some extraordinary new major pieces in 2009: from a new exclusive manual-winding movement to the most emblematic of chronographs to skeleton and jewellery models.
