  • Catalogue Essay

    The present example is part of a limited edition series of 260 pieces made to commemorate the 260th anniversary of Vacheron Constantin. Housed in a beautiful oversized cushion-shaped case, the dial reflects the traditional approach on horology and the rich history of the company thanks to details such as the use of "Breguet-like" numerals and the pulsometer scale. Furthermore, it is a single-button chronograph, typical of the earliest days of the past century.

    The watch is presented in overall excellent condition, and the dial is nice, clean and original. The appeal of the present piece is further enhanced by the presence of the original certificate and box.

  • 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.
