  • Catalogue Essay

    - Unveiled in 2000, the eminent Malte collection from Vacheron Constantin takes its moniker from the iconic Maltese Cross − the maison's hallmark emblem since 1880.

    - With its stepped and flared lugs embraced by bold vertical grooves, the case architecture of the present ref. 42005 Malte Dual Time Regulator makes a striking impression. This sophisticated silhouette is accentuated by the faceted sword-shaped hands gliding over a slate grey dial.

    - While the collection debuted in the dawn of the new millennium, it evoked a rich heritage. The Malte also pioneered advanced technical feats like its dual time function. A pusher situated discreetly at 10 o'clock provides ease of adjusting the second time zone.

    - Within the refined pink gold case, the self-winding cal. 1206 based on the esteemed Frédéric Piguet 1500 drives the meticulous mechanism, visible through the transparent hunter caseback.

    - The present Malte Dual Time Regulator numbered 10 of a limited edition of 150 pieces made available exclusively at Vacheron Constantin boutiques and preserved in immaculate condition is a timepiece that promises to endure as a contemporary classic.

    - 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.
