  • Catalogue Essay

    The Vacheron Constantin reference 4083 is amongst the rarest models ever made by the illustrious company. Launched in 1940, it was produced in an extremely small series and used the 21 jewel calibre 295 13''' movement. According to our research, only six examples in yellow gold and twelve in pink gold were ever made. One of the particularities of this example is the fact that it has a 45-minute counter and not the usual 30-minute counter.

    This watch however stands out further with its wonderful two-tone silvered dial, typical of the early 1940s and its symmetrical sector design, the black enamel hour markers and, most notably, the much sought-after pulsation scale. Preserved in very good, original condition, this reference 4083 can be considered as one of the most exclusive Vacheron Constantin watches ever made.
