The case on the Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Perpetual Calendar replica is made of rose gold plated steel. The case construction consists of three parts: the bezel and sapphire crystal, the middle casel, and the case back.
This particular model is fitted with the rose gold tone markers and hands making it stand out from the crowd. At 42mm wide and 12.5mm thick, this replica is not a small watch but it is also well proportioned so it sits well on your wrist. Don’t forget that this watch was commissioned to survive exceptional circumstances so, to protect from magnetic fields, there is a soft iron Faraday cage and, to guard against significant G-forces, the movement is placed in an anti-shock mount allowing it to float in the case if there is a shock. It is also water resistant to 30 meters for good measure.
The movement is a modified Clone Original Automatic Movement. This is a reliable, workhorse automatic movement that is certified as a chronometer for accuracy. Power reserve will run about 38 hours so, if you go a day without wearing it you’ll be fine.
Wearing the Patrimony Perpetual Calendar replica is fun. This fake watch is staunchly seated in the tool watch category and it feels the part. It is prominent on the wrist but not overly large, with a legible dial that will be instantly familiar to anyone that has ever sat in the cockpit of an airplane.
