Sometimes watches become more than mere timepieces. When Vacheron Constantin are the watchmakers, luxury watches sometimes transform into exquisite jewelry. The latest offering from the Swiss watch brand may not be a jewelry watch, but it is just as precious. The new Contemporaine small model is part of Vacheron Constantin’s Patrimony range. It is delicate, slender and elegant like the other Patrimony watches. The Patrimony Contemporaine small model features a 6.7 millimeter watch profile. The clock face displays the hours and minutes. The watch operates on a mechanical hand-wound movement. But this slender watch scores with respect to its design.
Instead of placing precious stones on the face of the Contemporaine small model, the designers at Vacheron Constantin have placed 62 brilliant-cut diamonds along the edge of the case. The stones catch the light, without appearing flashy. It is the perfect choice for a subdued office party, where you want to make a statement in an understated sort of way.
The Contemporaine small model is available in two basic variants – 18-karat pink gold or 18-karat white gold. Additionally, buyers can choose between two types of watchstraps crafted from alligator leather – dark blue or warm grey. Buyers also receive a second strap made from anthracite satin. A transparent caseback made from sapphire crystal allows users to view the inner workings of this sophisticated luxury watch. A silvered opaline dial adds to the overall effect. This luxury timepiece is truly ultra-feminine. The subtle design makes it perfect for everyday wear.
