    First introduced by luxury watchmaker Vacheron Constantin in the late 1970’s, the Kalla series marks a marriage between haute horlogerie and haute joaillerie, and has since then extended to a range of variants including the Lord and Lady Kalla, Count and Countess Kalla, Kalla Pagoda and Vague Kalla. Encrusted with over 28.00 carats of well-matched baguette diamonds, this Lady Kalla is a fine example of Vacheron Constantin at its best. Its matching version for men, the magnificent Lord Kalla, is offered at our Hong Kong Watch Auction: EIGHT this season.

    Vacheron Constantin

    Swiss • 1755

    The world's oldest watch brand in continuous operation since its founding in 1755, Vacheron Constantin was the first watch company to manufacture movements with interchangeable parts beginning in 1839. Vacheron's watches are admired for their Latin-influenced case designs, well-balanced proportions and exquisitely finished movements of the highest quality. The Geneva-based manufacturer is known for their highly complicated masterpieces, including the King Farouk Grand Complication made in 1935, the Tour de l'Ile that was the most complicated serially produced wristwatch when introduced in 2005 and the 57260 — the world’s most complicated watch — made in 2015.



    Key vintage models include minute repeating wristwatches such as the references 4261, chronographs such as the references 4178 and 6087 and the oversized Cioccolotone models such as ref. 4737. Collectors also appreciate Vacheron's Chronometer Royal pocket and wristwatches, as well as the '222,' the brand's first luxury sports watch produced from 1977 through 1984.
