Mistal celebrates Vacheron Constantin’s new Patrimony collection
A great watchmaking classic dedicated to collectors and crafted for eternity, Patrimony provides a pure and contemporary reinterpretation of a noble classic from the Vacheron Constantin heritage, stemming from the traditional watchmaking of the 1950s.
The deliberately minimalistic impression belies a concern for detail aimed at achieving perfectly balanced lines. The dial, applied hour-markers and hands, all follow the gentle curve of the case, complemented by a perfectly designed small second’s subdial and a pearl minute track. This watch is to be worn like a second skin for a supreme touch of elegance.
Since 2006, through its Collection Excellence Platine concept, Vacheron Constantin has been offering collectors the ultimate expression of fine watchmaking: Exceptional watches in 950 platinum issued in limited series and ranging from the simplest to the most complicated models. Above and beyond a platinum case, their common denominators are a platinum dial with a sand-blasted finish, a secret 'Pt950' signature between 4 and 5 o’clock, 18K white gold hands, hour-markers and a 'pearl' minute track, a dark blue alligator leather strap hand-stitched with silk tread and platinum thread as well as a polished half Maltese cross-shape platinum buckle and a majestic embodiment of the Patrimony aesthetic.
Issued in a 150-piece limited and numbered series, the Patrimony Collection Excellence Platine watch asserts itself as a watchmaking dream. Its generous 42 mm-diameter case houses the Manufacture calibre 4400 AS, visible through the sapphire crystal caseback and adorned with a Côtes de Genève motif. Its dimensions are perfectly tailored to those of the case. A Hallmark of Geneva certified mechanism dedicated to the cause of exclusivity gives it the air of exceptional accomplishment.
Reaching to eternity and beyond, 950 platinum is an absolute luxury. Its depth and its highly distinctive grey colour creates a fascinating light effect and will last an eternity. This noble and exclusive metal requires no varnish and will never become oxidised.
Dharmesh A Khimji, managing director of Mistal, said, “The Patrimony is a true collector’s pride, a collection that belongs to a league of its own. With a limited edition of 150 individually numbered pieces, this collection has raised brows of interest amongst the most elite watch aficionados. As the local partners of this esteemed brand, we are delighted at the launch of this new collection.”
