  • Catalogue Essay

    The Vacheron Constantin Patrimony collection reinterprets the unparalleled heritage of the brand in an understated yet contemporary way. Born out of the effervescence of the 1950s, the model with unwavering elegance is still one of the most signature models of the brand. The present Patrimony ref. 13508 with a pentadecagon slender white gold case certainly strikes with opulent beautiful. Adorned with a diamond-set bezel, the mastery of the art of engraving is shown in full force within the miniature works of a skeletonized dial. The coolness of the white gold details contrasted with warm yellow gold gears and rotor heightens the depth of the translucent framework. Well-preserved with a hint of understated extravagance, the present timepiece is perfect for the discerning collector who appreciates artisanal movements.

  • 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.
