Swiss luxury watchmaker Vacheron Constantin has now crafted its Patrimony Moon Phase Retrograde Date in platinum, elevating the model and introducing it into its highly-exclusive Collection Excellence Platine.

While the watch retains the same 42.5mm measurement as its white gold and rose gold counterparts, almost everything about the timepiece has now been constructed out of a premium 950 platinum instead: from the case to the sandblasted dial and clasp to even the thread in the strap. The applied indices now come in white gold, joined with two hour and minute hands of the same material. A third blue hand works in tandem with the large retrograde date display on the top of the dial, complemented by the moon phase and moon age display at 6 o’clock. All these complications are powered by the in-house 2460 R31L automatic movement — which operates at 28,800 vibrations per hour and carries a power reserve of 40 hours — and can be adjusted via the crown alone. Completing the look is a deep blue alligator strap, perfect for a dress watch of this caliber.

With only 50 made and limited to its boutiques, the Vacheron Constantin’s platinum Patrimony Moon Phase Retrograde Date will sell for $67,000 USD, $22,000 USD more than its white or rose gold counterparts.

Elsewhere in watches, Conor McGregor shows off his rare green Patek Philippe Annual Calendar Chronograph.
