The Patrimony by Vacheron Constantin was introduced in the 1950s, still the thinnest mechanical watch in the world, at 5.25mm. See photo - the movement is virtually just as thin as the watch band. Chosen as one of 999 outstanding symbols of twentieth-century design, Vacheron demonstrated its unparalleled mastery with this industry stunning model. The 35 mm. diameter case is signed and marked: Vacheron Constantin 18K .750 case # 331140 with cartouches.

This places the date of this special vintage piece firmly in the 1950s, as the production dates of Vacheron Constantin are approximately 500,000 - 550,000 for the years 1950 to 1960. Elegant oyster dial with raised gold roman numeral and chevron hour markers and hands and of course its stylish small second hand in the lower-mid face. Price reduced. Less rare, newer Patrimony “Comps” can be found priced from $13,200 to $18,500. This handsome timepiece is a chance to obtain true defining excellence at a below market price.|
