Some Vacheron Constantin Delight: Patrimony Skeleton Platinum.

Mar 19, 2021,15:39 PM

Here is the 36 mm case. Which I find exquisite in this size. 

The platinum case has some very nice proportions, indeed, and the dial is just a marvel to be admired. 

As for the movement, it is the good old Jaeger Lecoultre, reworked by Vacheron in terms of finishings. 

The legibility? Two things, if we are honest: I think you need to have a good sight to read the time. But is this the problem with our tired eyes or with the dial? 

Second thing: With this kind of watch, you admire the time more than you read it.

Marvel it is!

Who ever claimed that 41mm was a decent size for a wristwatch. It’s not! So much under one hood. Marvel. Who cares about in house now?

Absolutely on that train man!

And they are listening I hope. The manufacturers. I think they are. Below 40 is so elegant. But you have to make an effort.

I like the white background on the dials for legibility sake...

...but still have issues with the leap year being so crowded. But probably wears perfectly.

I know...but it's one thing that PP and others do much better...

Oh yes. To die for.

I wished they did the month/leap year dial in a way that it didn't have all 48 months like that.

Absolutely gorgeous

That is a wonderful piece there. I am a big fan of the 1120 anyhow, be it in VC incarnation or inf AP/PP, and coupled with a perpetual calender module it gives a decently slim PC. Add to that the skeletting and usual top finish of VC and you have somethin... 

Same pleasure for me.

Just beautiful and just legible enough, while my eyesight remains good.

More than most fine watches, I imagine this gorgeous skeleton perpetual as a heirloom to remind its custodian that life is both beautiful and fleeting. Inherited at 30, appreciated at 40, passed down at 60.
