SIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC stand

This year, the hall of the VC stand welcomed a very interesting exposition on the calibers of our favorite Manufacture...

Thanks to our dear moderatorSIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC stand, I could handle and try the VC’s novelties, believe me the press pics are far far far far away from the reality for these watches!!SIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC stand


The Patrimony Traditionnelle with the new manual caliber 4400


Not fan at all when I saw the press pics due to the visual effect of the small second at 6’, although I always prefer the automatic Patrimony Traditionnelle with small second at 9’, the new one is not as unbalanced as I though, the work on the dial and the relief of the different level (rails etc.) give a very interesting view on the new disposal.
Not fan, but I will accept it if it was offered to me LoooooL!SIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC stand

The Patrimony Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar & Chronograph

Very reserved on this watch, I largely prefer the Malte Perpetual Calendar & Chronograph Excellence Platine SIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC standor, a little less the Malte Perpetual Calendar & Chronograph in yellow gold.
As I thought, all the information converges on the center of the dial, but on the flesh, it’s less "intense" than on the press pics; and the index are a little big for me compared to the size of the dial.
But the moooooooooooooooooooonphase!!! Alalalaalalalala!!SIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC standSIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC stand

Patrimony Traditionnelle Chronograph
Definitively in love, no words to describe this wonderful watch … why VC hid it to us for a so long time?
Despite the 42mm of the case and my small wrist, I want this watch (plus the BiRetro, the QdI and the American 1921)!!SIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC standSIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC standSIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC standSIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC standSIHH 2009: A quarter of a day on VC stand

Fred, thank you for a wonderful detailed report. I agree with you the the Patrimony Traditionelle Chrono is a must have, so gorgoeus. I want to try in on when it hits my AD.  Luckily my wrist can handle a 42mm, lol. Appreciate your fine photos too! Regards, Matt
Many thanks Fred for sharing your visit to the VC booth at SIHH
