  • Catalogue Essay

    In 2006, with the inception and creation of the Collection Excellence Platine, Vacheron Constantin wanted to honor the intrinsic alliance between pure mechanical refinement and an inestimably precious material, platinum.

    Rare, pure, and eternal, platinum which was discovered in the 18th century has been the favored material in the field of Fine Watchmaking since the beginning of the 19th century. Noblest of all metals, the distinctive choice of material from Vacheron Constantin further heightened the gravitas and importance of the present timepiece. Luxurious and exclusive, after an extensive research and development period the team managed to create a jaw dropping sandblasted platinum dial. Noticeable from the platinum PT950 hallmark between 4 and 5 o'clock, Vacheron Constantin wanted to keep a pure platinum dial with no protective coating to keep the metal's intrinsic "raw" metallic aspect as much as possible.

    Equipped with Calibre 2260, the Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon Collection Excellence Platine features a mechanical hand-wound tourbillon movement boasting an impressive 14-day power reserve. In addition to the tourbillon, paired with a small second at 6 o’clock, the movement also features a power-reserve display at 12 o'clock. Such is the refinement, the entire watch bears the exclusive Hallmark of Geneva.

    In excellent condition, the present Patrimony Traditionnelle 14-day tourbillon was issued in a 50-piece individually numbered limited edition, of which the present timepiece is number 9.

  • Artist Biography

    Vacheron Constantin

    Swiss • 1755

    The world's oldest watch brand in continuous operation since its founding in 1755, Vacheron Constantin was the first watch company to manufacture movements with interchangeable parts beginning in 1839. Vacheron's watches are admired for their Latin-influenced case designs, well-balanced proportions and exquisitely finished movements of the highest quality. The Geneva-based manufacturer is known for their highly complicated masterpieces, including the King Farouk Grand Complication made in 1935, the Tour de l'Ile that was the most complicated serially produced wristwatch when introduced in 2005 and the 57260 — the world’s most complicated watch — made in 2015.

    Key vintage models include minute repeating wristwatches such as the references 4261, chronographs such as the references 4178 and 6087 and the oversized Cioccolotone models such as ref. 4737. Collectors also appreciate Vacheron's Chronometer Royal pocket and wristwatches, as well as the '222,' the brand's first luxury sports watch produced from 1977 through 1984.
