Introducing the new Patrimony Retrograde Day/Date in Platinum

made especially for Cortina watches in Singapore.

This achingly superb watch will be available only at Cortina and limited to 35 pieces.

The Patrimony Contemporaine retrograde Day/Date houses VC's inhouse caliber 2460 R31 R7(bearing the Geneva Seal), the case is 42.5mm in platinum and the dial is sandblasted ruthenium.

I already found the regular production model really attractive but the Cortina edition is amazing, it has a very post-industrial stealth masculine look which I love.

This is just another example of how Vacheron Constantin can in the same watch alliy design and modernisme with traditional watchmaking!Introducing the new Patrimony Retrograde Day/Date in Platinum

That is definitely my favorite version of the Patrimony Retrograde Day/Date.  Its really understated and super cool!  The dial is beautiful!  I bet in platinum it has a very substantial/weighty feel to it. 

Thanks for sharing new pix of it.

Best regards,

this really is an achingly superb watch and the PG + black dial looks so much better than the regular RG. Still nothing beats your new RG+black dial Patrimony Contemporaine boutiqe edition!!!

Really a nice design.  While I must admit, I like the warmth of the regular version better, I am sure that in the metal, this LE is also a stunner.

I was at my favorite AD this afternoon and they told me that the regular version they had sold right away.  No surprise though.  I'd get one if I had the wrist size for it (and the wallet too)...

They also had the new Patrimony automatic without date.  It seems that the new stuff is coming in early this year.  Still no Traditionelle though.  Unfortunately, I wasn't expecting anything new to come in so I didn't have a camera handy.  Lovely watch though.

Beautiful watch but I don't understand something

If the new Patrimony Retrograde is in platinum, why on the caseback is "750" ?. I ask because this means that Patrimony is in white gold, not in platinum. Platinum has purity 950.

interesting comment. I'll ask VC and get back to you on this! (nt)

the inscriptions on the caseback are not final ie 750 (gold) instead

950 (platinum) as these are photos of the final prototype and the delivered watches will of course be in platinum

Thanks for the explanation (nt)
