Vacheron Constantin presents Patrimony self-winding Jewellery, a brand new Patrimony watch model entirely set with diamonds.
Unveiled at Watches and Wonders Shanghai, the Patrimony self-winding jewellery watch has a diamond-set white gold case measuring 37mm in diameter. The dial is entirely paved with diamonds using the snow-setting technique.
Equipped with the self-winding Calibre 2460 SC/3, it is the first jewellery watch in the Patrimony collection. Inspired by the classic watches developed by Vacheron Constantin in the 1950s, it retains the harmonious proportions and pure lines that have characterised the collection since 2004.
It follows the footsteps of the self-winding Patrimony models unveiled in spring 2023 in a case with redesigned proportions and adorned with a subtly rounded crown.
The slender case middle is adorned with round diamonds and the lugs are also delicately gem-set, as too is the bezel forming a halo of light around the dial. In all, the Patrimony self-winding model is set with 769 diamonds, including a single rose-cut diamond resting delicately on the sensual curve of the crown.
Adorned with 420 round diamonds using the snow-setting technique, the sparkling dial is graced with slender white gold hour-markers swept over by dainty leaf-type hands, also in white gold.
Inside this diamond-set watch beats the in-house Calibre 2460 SC/3, which drives hours, minutes and seconds hands. Endowed with a balance oscillating at a rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour, this self-winding movement offer a power reserve of around 40 hours.
The movement’s exceptional finishing can be admired through the sapphire crystal caseback, notably including a mainplate circular-grained on both sides featuring hand-chamfered bridges adorned with Côtes de Genève pattern, along with a finely hand-guilloché oscillating weight.
The Patrimony self-winding jewellery watch comes with a pearlescent blue alligator leather strap. It can be paired with a wide range of styles, outfits and colours thanks to the interchangeable strap.
