Inspired by the first pocket watch made by Jean-Marc Vacheron in 1755, Vacheron Constantin revisits its past by presenting a new pink gold pocket watch. The design contemporary yet timeless and understated in its design. A real dandy.
It is powered by Vacheron’s hand-wound 4440 movement with 65 hour power reserve, visible through the sapphire display back.
The watch comes on a brown calf leather cord with Vacheron Constantin engraved fitting as well as a brown leather pouch. A pink gold chain is also available.
The Patrimony Contemporary Pocket watch meets the new Poinçon de Genève (Hallmark of Geneva) criteria. Instated by the Grand Council of the Republic and Canton of Geneva in 1886, the Hallmark is a guarantee of origin, of craftsmanship, of durability and of know-how. This quality label of independent origin, which has no equivalent anywhere in the world, underwent a fundamental transformation in 2011: the certification no longer applies to the calibre alone, but now to the timepiece as a whole.
The piece is a svelte 43mm x 7.4mm.
