  • Catalogue Essay

    Almost every significant watch brand has an iconic watch that collectors adore, from the Reverso to the Submariner. Vacheron Constantin is probably best known for the Chronomètre Royal.

    The Chronomètre Royal Vacheron Constantin Genève became a registered trademark on May 28th, 1907 when the first pocket-watch bearing this prestigious name was presented. Thereafter, the name was used on only those fitted with a chronometer certified movement.

    This is a beautiful example of a reference 6111, showing the fullness of its case proportions. The warm, silvered dial with applied and faceted hour markers combines purity and elegance that is typical of the period.

    Sold with its original fitted box, Vacheron & Constantin Certificate of Origin, Chronomètre Royal Bulletin de Marche, extract, booklet and swing tag bearing the movement number, this watch is ‘as good as it gets’ for the discerning collector.
