Patrimony Traditionnelle Lady Manual Wind
The new Patrimony Traditionnelle pays a glowing tribute to women. Following the true watchmaking tradition, it brings to notice a conventional style with a timeless appeal, particularly to the most demanding clients seeking an authentic watch with a heritage. They will also appreciate the fine workmanship of a watch meeting the norms of the new Hallmark of Geneva that now applies to the entire finished watch rather than to its movement only.
Cut from pink or white gold, the slender case of the new Patrimony Traditionnelle for women is accentuated in its new diameter of 33 mm. A bezel set with 54 round-cut diamonds provides the illumination for the style markers of this collection: the minute track painted in brown or grey, applied hour markers and Dauphine hands made from solid gold circling over an opaline silver-toned dial. A strap made of Alligator mississippiensis, in midnight blue or taupe, signs off a watch that has left nothing to chance.
The high-grade mechanical manual-winding movement, calibre 1400, bearing the prestigious Hallmark of Geneva is the true reflection of a genuinely artistic approach. The finish of this movement is done entirely by hand following a tradition passed down through the generations since 1755 and according to the most exacting rules of the art of watchmaking. The flat surfaces are adorned with Côtes de Genève (Geneva stripes) and the sharp edges chamfered and polished, even on the heads and slots of each screw. There can be no truer expression of the watchmaker’s art.
