Vacheron Constantin Patrimony 36mm – Restrained Elegance

Postby Racer-X » June 6th 2017, 4:51pm

by Brice Goulard "Gentlemen, one of the main issues we, watch aficionados, face nowadays might be that we see some of our watches more often strapped on lovely feminine wrists rather than on ours. And despite the fact that we intrinsically love it (but we can’t admit it), there has to be a solution to please both our beloved ladies and us. What if finally, we have found a watch that we, men, could steal from our wives? Or simply a watch made for both genders and that brings back this simple pleasure of having a small (relatively speaking) watch on the wrist. The new Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Small Model 36mm might be this solution."

It's beautiful. There's quite a load of bollocks in the article, though. 38mm, small? Nope. As to the size defining the watch as gents' or ladies', that's largely bullshit as well. The proportions of key elements of the design define that, but there's still more to it than just that.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Would prefer it without date.

My two cents: Absolute perfection. I'd be beyond proud to wear that one.
