  • Catalogue Essay

    Vacheron Constantin fathom themselves as one of the true masters of complications, especially perpetual calendars. As the oldest Geneva based manufacturer, Vacheron Constantin has produced many important and highly complicated wristwatches since the beginning of their time. Throughout the years of experience, the Traditionnelle Perpetual Calendar Chronograph was born.

    Packed with a contemporary flare yet still staying true to the firm’s reputable quality traditional Swiss craftsmanship, the ref. 47292/1 epitomizes the essence of masculinity due to its larger 43mm diameter case and its platinum case with a luxurious heft. Equipped with the manufacturer’s two most important complications, the perpetual calendar and the chronograph, the reference is powered by the firm’s Lemania inspired cal. 1141. A noteworthy caliber derived from one of the best Lemania cal. 27-70, the cal. 1141 ensures precise timekeeping running at 2.5 hertz as well as being one of the most aesthetically pleasing to admire through its transparent caseback. Discontinued in 2016, the refence was replaced by the new ref. 5000 T equipped with their new cal. 1142.

    The present example in platinum with an attractive and now discontinued two tone grey dial is offered with full set of accessories is a great perpetual calendar chronograph timepiece to sport for any important and boardroom occasions.

  • 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.
