  • Catalogue Essay

    Founded in 1755, Vacheron Constantin has remained one of the leading watch manufacturers for 260 years. Their vintage chronographs are considered to be extremely rare.

    The present example reference 6026 is one of Vacheron Constantin rarest chronographs watches ever made. Only in production for one year, this reference was manufactured in yellow gold and pink gold with merely 25 pieces produced. The present pink gold watch, which is the rarest of the two, is one of only six pieces made. It is so rare that for the vast majority of scholars and collectors of Vacheron Constantin, it was only known to them by archival images from Vacheron Constantin.

    The large case size is fitted with long, angular lugs, giving this watch a much more modern feel compared with both the reference 4178 and reference 4072. The dial features a tachometer and telemeter scale with applied baton and Arabic numeral hour markers.

    With its exceptional rarity, large case size, and beautiful modern design, this piece will make the perfect addition to any discerning Vacheron Constantin collector.
