Vacheron Constanin had some thrill this year by offering a number of their classic designs a makeover with amazing blue dials. It is no shock that blue has made its way into Vacherons bigger collections, but the execution of it, as a whole, has been remarkable from begin to finish.
The Patrimony Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin has been a portion of the broader Patrimony family since 2011. Not big changes have been done in the past 8 years other than the addition of this refreshing midnight blue dial. Classic baton hands placed above the cambered dial on which the minute track is decorated with gold cabochons. The hour makers are both baton-shaped and trapeze. Beneath the sunburst, the lunar disc, satin-finished dial presents a matching pink gold moon set against a lapis lazuli sky. The 41 x 9.9 mm thick diameter with 18k pink gold case is water resistant to thirty meters and fitted with a sapphire crystal caseback exposing the mechanical movement inside.
Caliber Ultra-thin 1120 QP perpetual calendar calculates a mere 4.05mm thick. Beating at a frequency of 2.75 Hz, it has about forty-hour power reserve. Caliber 1120 QP drives signs of the minute, hours and perpetual calendar featuring the day of the week in a subdial at nine o clock, the date in a subdial at three o clock, the month and leap year on a forty-right month subdial at twelve o clock and the moon phase at six o clock. This feat of engineering with its stylish-work and Maltese oscillating weight contains 275 parts, finished in accordance with the top standards of Haute Horlogerie.
This Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Perpetual Calendar Ultra watch priced at $78,000 and will be accessible later current summer exclusively at Vacheron Constantin luxury brand boutiques.
