Vacheron Constantin has created an exclusive timepiece dedicated to the Middle East region with a unique dial color: the Patrimony Middle East Edition.
One of Vacheron Constantin’s most admired models, the Patrimony manual-winding, has been adorned with a new salmon dial in an exclusive timepiece dedicated to the Middle East. This interpretation appears in a generous 42mm diameter and with the ultimate touch of sophistication – a case and buckle strap made of 950 platinum.
Being part of the Patrimony collection, this exclusive timepiece provides a pure and contemporary reinterpretation of a noble classic from the Vacheron Constantin heritage, stemming from the 1950s.
The dial, applied hour-markers and hands all follow the gentle curve of the case, complemented by a small seconds subdial and a “pearl” minute-track. Furthermore, the unique shade of the dial emulates the beauty of the Middle Eastern sunsets, adding a bespoke, Arabic elegance to this iconic timepiece.
The timepiece houses the manufacture manual-winding calibre 4400 AS, decorated with a Côtes de Genève motif, a majestic embodiment of the Patrimony aesthetic, visible through the transparent sapphire crystal caseback. The caliber, certified Hallmark of Geneva, is endowed with a 65-hour power reserve.
Anchored in the design and architectural universes, the Patrimony collection embodies the “One of not many” spirit of the Maison. This unique timepiece, upholds this credo beyond all else, epitomizing the equilibrium of minimalistic approach, circular perfection, understated design and mechanical mastery. It strikes a beautiful balance between taut lines and curves.
Unveiled on November 22nd 2019 at the 4th Edition of the Dubai Watch Week, this exceptional watch will be available in Middle Eastern boutiques only.
