In 2004, Vacheron Constantin launched the Patrimony Contemporaine model, which featured a 40mm case for a dress watch. At the time, the size was large for this type of watch, but the model found immediate demand in the market. Today, the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony line is a contemporary iconic series of watches that are recognized as the manufacturer’s signature time-only design. Featuring a slim case, it is an elegant and refined design that is both modern and classic. The company has had much success with releasing limited edition examples of this model exclusively in different parts of the world (in a particular boutique) or only at the Vacheron Constantin boutiques.
The present watch is a fine example of a Patrimony Contemporaine, launched worldwide in 2014 exclusively at Vacheron Constantin boutiques. Retailing for $27,400, the boutique-only example featured the combination of a unique black dial with a pink gold case, a combination that has lasting appeal.
