A tribute to Vacheron Constantin's creations during the period running from the 1930s to the 1950s, the Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds watch displays pure lines and harmonious proportions which sublimate the timeless aesthetic codes of the Patrimony Traditionnelle line.
At the heart of the case is the hand-wound Vacheron Constantin 4400 movement which can be admired through the sapphire crystal. Beating at a rate of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations/hour) with an approximately 65-hour power reserve, this movement is meticulously finished: the main flat surfaces of the movement are adorned with “Côtes de Genève” motif, angles are bevelled and hand-polished as are the screw heads.
This new timepiece meets the requirements of the Poinçon de Genève or Hallmark of Geneva, which are no longer confined to the movement alone, but now also take account of the finished watch.
The Patrimony Traditionnelle Small Seconds is fitted with a black Mississipiensis alligator leather strap fastened by a 950 platinum pin buckle.
