  • Catalogue Essay

    Vacheron Constantin’s “Les Complications” line was launched in the early 1990s and devoted to the mastery of complicated timepieces. The collection included minute repeating, tourbillon, perpetual calendar and skeletonized timepieces. It was the brands display of haute horlogerie and their superb technical expertise. The present platinum perpetual calendar chronograph is a superb example of the collection. The watch is well-preserved and has a classic modern appeal. The dial symmetry is perfect with four matching subsidiary dials, and a 38mm case with raised bezel that sits comfortably on the wear’s wrist. The watch offers a great value and history for all collectors.

  • 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.
