The latest additions to the Maison’s Traditionnelle and Patrimony collections bear the same spirit of technical innovation and aesthetic creativity that inspired the ladies’ timepieces before them, demonstrating Vacheron Constantin’s unswerving attention to detail in keeping with its ‘Anatomy of Beauty’ theme for 2022.

Here’s what you need to know about the new models that debuted at Watches & Wonders in Geneva this month.

Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin

Inspired by Vacheron Constantin models from the first half of the last century, the Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Ultra-Thin is a marvel of technical expertise and craftsmanship, available in versions of 18k white gold and 18k 5N pink gold.

Housing an ultra-slim in-house Calibre 1120 QP that displays the day, date, month and year on a four-year cycle, the perpetual calendar boasts a dial of blue-grey tinted mother-of-pearl for the white gold model and white mother-of-pearl for the pink gold model, encircled by a dazzling bezel set with 76 round-cut diamonds, with a round-cut diamond adorning the crown.

A first for the collection, the watch features an alligator leather strap that’s interchangeable at the touch of a push-button.

A bonus for 2022 is Vacheron Constantin’s limited edition Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, a new signature model with a platinum case and a salmon-coloured dial with immaculate detailing. Fitted with an alligator leather strap, the Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph is powered by an in-house manual-winding Calibre 1142 QP, one of the most highly prized historical calibres for collectors.

Patrimony Self-Winding

A minimalist nod to the classic round shape and ultra-thin style of a historical 1957 Vacheron Constantin, the Patrimony self-winding emerges in four new references in 18K white gold or 18K 5N pink gold. The new models come with either a bezel set with 72 round-cut diamonds lighting up the minute track or with the minute track itself adorned with 48 round-cut diamonds, the latter being a complex feat in gem-setting.

Powered by a slim in-house 2450 Q6/3 movement, the white gold models boast a dial of deep blue with a subtle gradient, while the pink gold version fronts varying shades of blush pink on its dial.

The alligator leather straps on the new Patrimony watches, available in options of night blue or rosy beige with a satin finish, can also be removed by pressing the push-button, without the need for additional tools.

The result is a set of minimalist timepieces that are effortlessly elegant and classically feminine with a modern look and feel.
