  • Catalogue Essay

    For many female watch lovers, a watch is not simply a timekeeping tool, but also a fine accoutrement and an emblem of personal taste and style. A wondrous amalgamation of fine jewelry and Haute Horlogerie, the present wristwatch, created by Vacheron Constantin, amply embodies the best of both worlds. Featuring a stunning lapis lazuli and mother-of-pearl dial, the present lot exudes a sense of splendor and sophistication unlikely to be missed by its beholders.

    The breathtakingly beautiful bezel and lugs, made of dazzling, brilliant-cut diamonds and sapphires, further bestow the wristwatch with a grand aura. The diamond hour markers, the mother-of-pearl subsidiary registers, and the sylphlike hands further accentuate the elegance of the timepiece.

  • 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.
