  • Catalogue Essay

    The design of Vacheron Constantin’s reference 6307 is a superb example of how the famed Geneva brand manages to create timepieces that delightfully balance classicism with flamboyance.

    The large 37mm pink gold case entices with its lugs that seem thick when seen from above but that are slender and elegantly down-turning when admired from the side. The bezel is incredibly shaped with an unusual stepped angling that gives it marvelous charisma.

    The cream dial with facetted applied double baton hour markers and circular minute markers add the final touches to this stylish design.

    Giving life to this reference 6307 is the Vacheron Constantin caliber K1070, an automatic movement featuring a rotor with a guilloché 18k gold rim that is mounted on four ruby rollers. Furthermore, this movement features the Geneva Seal, demonstrating its painstaking finish.

    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.
