This very special version of Patrimony Traditionnelle Caliber 2755 watch will be available exclusively at the Vacheron Constantin Boutique in London. The classic elegance, a highly complicated mechanism and the contemporary architecture were joined together to reach the highest level of the haute horology. Its robust pink gold case houses a high-end movement that brings together three traditional complications – a perpetual calendar, a tourbillon and a minute repeater.
Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle Caliber 2755 watch for a London Boutique pays a nice homage to the host country of the special edition, by using a silver dial, decorated with “Union Jack” pattern which is identical to those of the United Kingdom flag. The dial features a railway-style minute track which is placed slightly off-centre to make the impression of depth. Applied hour markers are made of pink gold and nicely polished, as well as central hour and minutes hands.
At the upper part of the dial, there are three sub-dials and one small aperture, all serving as the perpetual calendar indicators. The one at the 12 o’clock position displays moths, the sub-dial at the 9 o’clock indicates day of the week, while the date is shown at the 3 o’clock position. Finally, the small aperture is there to display the leap year. The bottom part is reserved for the exceptional tourbillon cage. Inspired by the brand’s signature Maltese cross, this technological masterpiece is revealed through an aperture at the 6 o’clock position. It is a part of an in-house Caliber 2755 hand-winding movement. Built of 602 parts, including 40 jewels, this remarkable mechanism beats at the low frequency of 18’000 vibrations per hour and ensures around 58 hours of power-reserve. For its excellence, it bears the Hallmark of Geneva, which is a guarantee of origin, quality of workmanship, durability and decoration.
Besides perpetual calendar and tourbillon complications, it incorporates the minute repeater. For the great resonance of its gongs, the case of the novelty has the robust architecture, with the diameter of 44 mm. It is paired with a light brown alligator strap with a rose gold folding buckle. The Patrimony Traditionnelle Caliber 2755 watch will be presented in the Vacheron Constantin hand-crafted box.
