Patrimony Contemporaine self-winding
Limited edition of 150 pieces individually numbered.
The Collection Excellence Platine, launched in 2006, welcomes a new model stemming from the elegant Patrimony Contemporaine line. This Haute Horlogerie classic is available for the first time in a 42 mm diameter, issued in a naturally rare and limited edition of 150.
Vacheron Constantin associated the acknowledged of elegance and understanding of the Patrimony Contemporaine line with the precious nature of solid platinum revealing a gleaming ‘jewel box’ bound to house a remarkable mechanical gem.
The Excellence Platine Collection was previously available exclusively in a 40 mm-diameter case, now with its fine, taut lines, slim silhouette and broad dial opening, this new 42 mm-diameter case fitted with a transparent back continues to display the timeless design that has earned its predecessors such enduring success. It features a pure dial finely grained sandblasted 950 platinum, discreetly bearing the inscription “PT950” between 4 and 5 o’clock. Besides, the outer zone is enhanced by a beaded minute circle and applied hour-markers in 18K gold. Case and crown are naturally crafted in 950 platinum and hands are also made from this precious metal. It is also secured by a 950 platinum pin buckle, with a dark blue alligator leather strap.
