  • Catalogue Essay

    The reference 46003 was the mid-size edition of the original 222 model which was introduced in 1977. Not only is the stylish and iconic design of the original model retained, but it is now even more pleasant in a smaller case. The model is a highly-coveted icon amongst collectors, and the present watch is in excellent overall condition with well-preserved lug bevels. Our research shows that the present watch is fresh to the market and with Roman numerals dial enhancing the rarity. Making it an excellent timepiece to possess.

  • 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.
