Vacheron Constantin - Patrimony Traditionnelle Self-Winding

Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle Self-Winding

This elegant timepiece enjoys a new 41 mm case housing an ultra-thin Calibre 1120 and complies with the new Hallmark of Geneva.

Press release

The new Patrimony Traditionnelle Self-Winding watch clearly belongs an authentic horological tradition. With its pure lines and beautifully balanced proportions, it boldly reveals its classically timeless character through details such as the slender bezel, the knurled  motif on the screw-down case-back fitted with a sapphire crystal pane, 18-carat pink gold applied hour-markers, and elegant dauphine hands.

This new timepiece matches the new Hallmark of Geneva requirements that are no longer confined exclusively to the movement, but also take the entire finished watch into account. This is a major evolution for a label that celebrated its 125th anniversary last year and has chosen to respond more fully than ever to the true expectations of an even more informed clientele.

The gold case frames an opaline silver-toned dial on which time undertakes its perpetually renewed journey. The space is punctuated by 18-carat pink gold applied hour-markers, punctuated by a black minute circle, while the principle of simplicity also governs the circular dance of the hands, reflecting the elegance of traditional watchmaking through a refined interpretation and a timeless, eminently horological spirit.

At the heart of its case ticks the ultra-thin self-winding Calibre 1120 which has earned an excellent reputation. Developed and crafted in harmony with Geneva's most rigorous Fine Watchmaking traditions, it beats at a frequency of 2.75 Hz (19,800 vibrations/hour) and is endowed with an approximately 40-hour power reserve. Both its finishing and its construction testify to a wealth of fine workmanship. Not only are the smooth surfaces of the movement adorned with a meticulously executed “Côtes de Genève” motif, but all their sharp angles are chamfered and then hand-polished. Such is also the case with the screw heads.

In order to accommodate this shining example of mechanical genius in the style it deserves, Vacheron Constantin has designed the broad 18-carat pink gold case of its new Patrimony Traditionnelle Self Winding model in accordance with two rarely associated criteria. While the elegant slenderness of its profile proudly proclaims its lineage within the classic tradition, its 41 mm diameter lends it an undeniably contemporary dimension. The sapphire crystal case back enables one to admire the ultra-thin Caliber 1120. Setting the finishing touch, Vacheron Constantin has fitted its new Patrimony Traditionnelle Self Winding watch with a classic strap in chestnut brown alligator Mississippiensis, complete with an 18-carat pink gold pin buckle.
