Vacheron Constantin’s new Patrimony Moon Phase Retrograde Date Watch
Vacheron Constantin’s newest timepiece, the stylish and elegant Patrimony Moon Phase Retrograde Date watch, aims to make every single second count, in the best way possible. It might be one of the newest designs from the 261-year old watchmaker, but this exquisite timepiece is actually part of a collection that’s inspired by Vacheron Constantin’s 1950s designs.
The Patrimony Moon Phase Retrograde Date shows off a classy 42 mm case, available in either 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold, and regardless of your choice, this watch will handle 30-meter deep waters. It will also come with a silvered opaline dial, featuring the cool retrograde complication visible across 9 to 3 o’clock.
The moon phase display is really stylish as well, and its precision is of the utmost importance – which is why it’s only off by a single day every 122 years. Furthermore, the moon disc is rendered using the same gold alloy as the case, and the same goes for the hands, applied hour markers, and circular “pearl” minute track.
Everything ticks thanks to Vacheron Constantin’s in-house calibre 2460 R31L, thankfully visible through the sapphire case back, and with 275 components, 27 jewels, and 28,800 vph, this movement offers 40 hours worth of backup power.
The Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Moon Phase Retrograde Date is set to be showcased at SIHH 2017 and it will cost $39,900.
