Vacheron Constantin took pride with double firsts with the release of its Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Contemporaine Ultra-Thin Minute Repeater Calibre 1731.
This gorgeous well-proportioned watch has the thinnest minute repeater movement (3.90 mm) housed inside the slimmest minute repeater watch (8.09 mm). It has surpassed the Piaget’s Emperador Coussin Minute Repeater which measured 9.4mm thin.
The first minute repeater watch was devised in the 18th century. Vacheron Constantin came up with its first minute repeater on a pocket-watch in 1810. It has also succeeded the manufacture’s caliber 1755 repeater movement which has been around since the early 1990’s.
The slender piece comes in pebble shape, a 41mm rose gold case, manual wind VC cal. 1731 (minute repeater, 65 hrs power reserve, Geneva Seal), beaded minute circle, an elegant dial and impressive 65-hour power reserve.
Vacheron Constantin launched its first wristwatch in 1941, the Calibre 4261. Following its quest for watch excellence, in 1992, it presented the Calibre 1755, a minute repeater measuring just 3.28 mm thick. The 1731 served as its predecessor, named after the birth of the brand founder Jean-Marc Vacheron.
