Vacheron Constantin 86060/000R-9965 /00 description

At the occasion of the SIAR 2013 Gala dinner and auction, orchestrated by Sotheby’s, Vacheron Constantin created a unique Patrimony Traditionelle World Time. On the night of October 2, 2013, the gala dinner Sotheby's SIAR was held at the Casa del Lago, where renowned people of the Mexican society, as well as, domestic and foreign journalists were honored to witness the auction of the unique piece Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time INAH edition. This auction was intended to appeal to all those present to support and promote the recovery of the national heritage of all Mexicans. The proceeds of the auction were donated entirely to the INAH.

This unique piece especially made for the occasion represents the combination of technical skills and aesthetic taste cultivated by Vacheron Constantin. The complications of the World Time with the 37 time zones strengthens the technical excellence and creative spirit that has guided the Maison for more than 250 years. In addition, the dial and oscillating weight of the watch have been customized for this special occasion – still remaining in the spirit of the orginal model.

Vacheron Constantin signed an agreement in 2012 with the National Museum of History "Castillo de Chapultepec" through the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH). This agreement establishes the Maison's commitment to assist in the analysis, survey, diagnosis and possible restoration of the collection of pocket watches, as well as, clocks belonging to the Castillo.

In 2013 with the purpose of strengthening and continuing the commitment to support the preservation of the heritage of all Mexicans, Vacheron Constantin created a unique piece of one of its most iconic models, the Patrimony Traditionnelle World Time.
