Pure design with precious materials is a perfect marriage. With the elegance of the PATRIMONY Contemporaine series and the rare qualities of platinum, Vacheron Constantin once again showed the world the profound meaning of outstanding watchmaking technology. Adhering to the spirit of pursuing excellence, the ‘heart’ of this precious and rare high-quality timepiece is a 1120 ultra-thin self-winding mechanical movement, developed by Vacheron Constantin, and cast the prestigious imprint of Geneva .
The Patrimony Contemporaine series has always used a 40mm diameter case, but this ultra-thin self-winding model has changed its style, showing the bolder dial size, making it easier for connoisseurs to appreciate their elegant wrist style. Fine and concise lines, slender outlines and a large dial, equipped with a new 42 mm diameter case and transparent back, fully demonstrate its timeless and classic design style, and carry out the consistent reputation of this series.
Loyal to the design features of the ‘Limited Platinum Collection’ since its launch in 2006, the new Patrimony Contemporaine self-winding watch features an elegant 950 platinum dial decorated with fine sandblasting. ‘PT950’ is engraved between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions Typeface. The bright curved outer ring is a minute scale circle and an 18K white gold hour scale. In addition to the case and crown made of 950 platinum, the hands are also made of this precious metal. For perfection, the watch also features a 950 platinum buckle and a dark blue alligator leather strap hand-stitched with 950 platinum silk threads.
Vacheron Constantin’s use of platinum dates back to 1820. Since then, the brand has been using this precious metal to explain its quest for creativity and sophisticated timepiece design. Unlike 18K gold, which is only 75% pure, platinum has a purity of 95%, and is produced only in a few places in South Africa, such as South Africa. Platinum has a higher density and weight than other metals. In other words, its durability and eternity are self-evident, and it is also regarded as a symbol of eternity. In addition, it will not be oxidized, and it will not be affected over time, making it a perfect product worthy of a lifetime collection. Vacheron Constantin’s unique vision created the ‘Limited Platinum Collection’ to highlight the precious qualities of rare metals.
Platinum has always been favored by royalty and Indian nobles. Today, collectors and distinguished individuals with elegant tastes are also keen on platinum. Platinum exudes a noble taste, especially appreciated by connoisseurs and collectors. For them, owning a Vacheron Constantin ‘Limited Platinum Collection’ watch is a noble glory, and the new, limited to 150 Patrimony Contemporaine self-winding watches are their best choice for platinum.
