  • Catalogue Essay

    A true master at creating skeletonized watches, Vacheron Constantin is particularly skilled at chase work and handling precious metals. Vacheron Constantin created their very first skeletonized wristwatch in 1964, and has never stopped innovating since then.

    This watch, from the 1980s, features an automatic movement that is carefully welded and crafted to show off its intricate mechanism. Even the rotor is thoughtfully decorated so that the viewer can enjoy the design as it moves with the wearer's hand. The watch is further enhanced by a diamond-set bezel and bracelet, which is incredibly impressive and heavy.

  • Artist Biography

    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.
