  • Catalogue Essay

    Vacheron Constantin's Lord Kalla bracelet watch combines Haute Horlogerie and Haute Joaillerie creating a sublime baguette diamond-set wristwatch that appears to be constructed from nothing more than fine, eye-catching diamonds. The Kalla models, first released in 1979, are part of the larger Metiers d’Art collection and spring from the earlier Kallista wristwatch, which as its name suggested is the “most beautiful”.

    These jeweled timepieces included, the King Kalla, Lord and Lady Kalla, the Count and Countess Kalla, Kalla Pagode and Kalla Rome to name just a few of the more than twenty available models.

    The present Lord Kalla is in lovely original condition and comprised of 316 diamonds for an approximately weight of 58 carat. Presented in excellent overall condition, the present watch is the perfect combination for elegance, opulence and style.

    A petite version of the Kalla series, the magnificent Lady Kalla, is offered at our Jewels and Jadeite auction this season.

  • 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.
