A Legacy in Minimalism: Vacheron Constantin Celebrates 20 Years of the Patrimony Collection

New models embrace modernity while staying true to timeless design

For two decades, the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony collection has stood as a testament to the enduring allure of minimalist watchmaking. Inspired by the refined aesthetics of the 1950s, the Patrimony embodies a timeless elegance that transcends fleeting trends. To mark its 20th anniversary, Vacheron Constantin unveils a new selection of Patrimony models, subtly reinterpreting the collection’s core principles while infusing them with a touch of contemporary spirit.

At first glance, the new Patrimony models might seem unchanged. The signature round case, the slender bezel, the slightly convex dial – these elements remain, meticulously crafted and undeniably classic. However, a closer look reveals a series of subtle refinements that elevate the collection’s appeal for the modern watch connoisseur.

Two new manual-winding models, presented in 39mm cases of white or pink gold, offer a size ideal for a wider range of wrists. The sunburst-finished dials boast a captivating new old-silver tone, creating a subtle contrast with the pink gold hands and hour-markers. These models also introduce two new alligator leather strap options – azure blue and olive-green – adding a touch of personality without compromising the inherent elegance of the design.

The new Patrimony moon phase retrograde date watch further exemplifies the collection’s ability to evolve while remaining true to its heritage. Its 42.5mm white gold case houses a captivating old-silver-toned dial, complemented by pink gold hands and hour-markers for a touch of two-tone sophistication. The in-house Calibre 2460 R31L powers both the moon phase complication, accurate to within a mere 122 years, and the retrograde date display – a signature Vacheron Constantin feature.

The new olive-green alligator leather strap on this model complements the overall aesthetic, while the sapphire crystal caseback offers a glimpse into the intricate mechanics of the movement, including the Maltese cross-shaped openworked oscillating weight – a hallmark of Vacheron Constantin craftsmanship.

One of the most intriguing additions to the new Patrimony models is the option for personalization. The closed caseback of the manual-winding models can be adorned with a delicate engraving, allowing the owner to imbue their timepiece with a unique and lasting sentiment.

The Vacheron Constantin Patrimony collection is more than just a collection of watches; it’s a testament to the Maison’s dedication to timeless design and enduring quality. The new models celebrate the 20th anniversary of this cherished collection, subtly reinterpreting its core principles for a new generation of watch enthusiasts. With their understated elegance and modern touches, these Patrimony timepieces are poised to become heirlooms of the future.
