  • Catalogue Essay

    Bedazzled with baguette-cut diamonds and sapphires, the present Vacheron Constantin lady’s timepiece is not simply just a timekeeping tool, but an embodiment of distinguished taste and style for the discerned lady. A wonderful marriage between traditional watchmaking and high jewelry, the 34.5mm diameter case houses a vibrant blue lapis lazuli dial matching harmoniously with the sapphire-set bezel. Featuring a practical date functions and a power reserve indication displayed upon mother-of-pearl registers, the contrast against the hardstone stone generates better legibility yet retaining its elegance.

  • 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.
