SIHH is bringing some exceptionall new timepieces.
Vacheron Constantin is presenting its new Patrimony Traditionnelle Self-Winding timepiece which is presented in a new 41 mm case housing an ultra-thin Calibre 1120 and complies with the new Hallmark of Geneva.
The gold case has a beautiful opaline face (some call it a dial…), and the back of this timepiece reveals a finely finished automatic movement.
Generally I do not like to give key data of a watch, as this is what everyone else is presenting. But in this case, it may be of interest, especially since I cannot find the watch yet on the Vacheron Homepage.
