The influence of the bespoke ateliers is being felt on the regular production models: you want the Patromony Automatic model but don't like the cut out for the date? Well Vacheron Cosntantin has answered your request with the launch of the new Patrimony Automatic without date ref 86180.
This model is being pre-launched in Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Japan and via the boutique in Moscow. It will be available worldwide by April 2008.
The Patrimony Automatic without date houses the automatic in house caliber 2460 SC (bearing the Geneva seal) and visible through its saphire case back.
The case measures 40mm and is 8.31mm thick. It is available in white and rose gold.
I find it interesting that even for its most simple line of watches Vacheron Constantin wishes to have a wide offer (manual wind, automatic with date, automatic without date) as to answer the needs and tastes of all!
