  • Catalogue Essay

    - The Historiques American 1921 pays tribute to Vacheron Constantin's rich history and is specifically designed for the American market during the vibrant Roaring Twenties. Emerging after World War I, this era was characterized by economic prosperity and a distinct artistic and cultural dynamism. During this period, Vacheron Constantin defied traditional watch design norms with the release of the cushion-shaped 1921 collection, departing from the commonly seen rectangular or round cases.

    - The current offering of the Historiques American 1921 features a pink gold case with a crown positioned at 1 o'clock. The dial is adorned with a sandblasted finish, showcasing classic black Breguet numerals and a diagonal railway minute track for enhanced legibility.

    - With its 40 mm diameter, this timepiece is sure to captivate both enthusiasts and aficionados of classic and avant-garde designs, providing a timeless piece that harkens back to a bygone era.

    - Please note that the proceeds of the sale of the present watch will be given by the Consignor to various charities.

  • 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.
