Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Ref. 31160/000J

$8,495

Pre-Owned 18k Vacheron Constantin 33mm Yellow Gold Dial Leather Strap, Ref. 31160

The bright, 18K gold Maltese cross, the symbol of Vacheron Constantin, accompanies the watchmaker’s name on the dial.  Beyond that, the slender black hands are framed by the crisp, white dial, with only the classical, equally slender roman numerals completing the dial.  It is an unostentatious dial that exudes confidence. The Patrimony is powered by a manually-wound caliber 1132.2, which is based on the Frederic Piguet, the highest-end ebauche manufacturer. The movement is exquisitely decorated and only 2mm in height, with a 40 hour power reserve. This watch must have seen rather little wear since new. The case back sticker is in tact and the factory finish is evident through a heavy tarnish or patina. The watch is accompanied by a signed leather Vacheron pouch and original papers showing it was sold in 1985. We added a fresh strap to the original Vacheron matching buckle.

Description

Founded during the Enlightenment in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is the oldest watchmaker in Switzerland, a country renowned for watchmaking.  Due to its success, the watchmaker took on a partner in 1819, before many other companies were even formed.  Their new motto was “Do better if possible and that is always possible” (translation).  Vacheron Constantin has been doing it better and improving watches since 1819.  For their 260th anniversary, they created the world’s most complicated watch, a pocket watch that took three watchmakers eight years to build.  Vacheron Constantin embeds into all their watches that exceptional watchmaking skill that they gained from being one of the world’s oldest watchmakers.
