Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time Watch

by 04 August 2011

The Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time watch by Vacheron Constantin is a necessity for the man of the world. Louis Cottier’s World Time mechanism, first created 80 years ago, is moving into the next generation with the new Calibre 2460 WT. This exclusive, soon to be patented and featuring the exclusive Hallmark of Geneva, mechanism is the only one of its kind capable of displaying the exact temporal reality of each of the 37 time zones of the world – including those offset from the Universal Coordinated Time – such as Mumbai and Caracas – by the half or quarter of an hour. The Calibre 2460 WT pays tribute to Vacheron Constantin’s pioneering role in the development of multiple time-zone watches.

“This watch is the perfect example of how we balance creativity and audacity with Vacheron Constantin’s heritage and style. It’s why we are considered the benchmark of watch-making.” Christian selmoni, artistic director, declares. (Text by Victoria Gill)
