Patrimony Date-Jour Rétrogradants

An icon of classical minimalism and the epitome of fine workmanship and natural flair, the Patrimony has reigned over watch collections since 1957. Vacheron Constantin is ending the year with this group of watches including 5 new pieces: 3 models with a slate grey dial (two hands, three hands with date and date/day) and 2 small diamond pieces in white or rose gold with a silver-tone dial. The most stunning thing about these watches is the retrograde dual date and day display. The former lies in a semi-circle between 9 and 3 o’ clock on the grey dial whilst the latter stands between 7 and 5 o’ clock. Both figures are white to stand out against the slate background. The Patrimony’s signature applied indices and pearlescent minute track lie beneath two baton-shaped rose gold hands. The 42.5mm rose gold case houses a self-winding movement bearing the Geneva Seal. Price: 48,500 CHF
