Vacheron Constantin has proved once again their dedication to women by unveiling three major collections dedicated exclusively to women at Salon International de la Haute Horlogerie (SIHH) in Geneva. The Patrimony collection is home to original creations combining the traditional with the contemporary. The Patrimony collection is truly a celebration of the woman and femininity and is characterized by the unvaryingly round cases, which underlies Vacheron Constantin’s dedication to its tradition and heritage. Rather than have the traditional and contemporary fight for center stage, Vacheron has managed to make them sing with the Patrimony Contemporaine watches embracing the present and the Patrimony Traditionnelle laying claim to the classic. Two versions of the Patrimony Contemporaine Lady gold bracelet give a sense of timelessness that is still in the spirit of the times. With a diameter of 36 mm, the first watch has a bezel circled with round diamonds. In contrast, the second is paved with nearly 800 diamonds and pays tribute to Vacheron Constantin’s expertise in jewelry. Both of these models have a transparent sapphire crystal case back and feature the Geneva stamp.
The Patrimony Traditionnelle lady manual winding has a movement thickness of 2.60 mm and embodies a classic feminine style. The bezel has been set with 54 round-cut diamonds and comes in either 18K white gold, or 18K rose gold. The watch features a transparent sapphire crystal case back. The strap adds a more practical aspect to this feminine watch and comes in dark blue, warm grey, or Mississippiensis alligator leather. The second strap has been made with satin.
The Patrimony Traditionnelle High Jewelry collection features pieces, which blur the lines between timepiece and jewelry. They feature a caliber 1400 movement with a diameter of 20.65mm. The case is made with 18k white gold and paved with 124 baguette-cut diamonds equaling nearly 10 carats in weight. A black satin strap adds a level of elegance and opulence to the watch.
