  • Catalogue Essay

    The Vacheron Constantin Malte Chronograph collection was first introduced in 2004, replacing the firm’s Chronograph Historique line while making an impression with the atypical oversized diameter. The collection remained in production until 2009, and has become highly sought after in the world of horology.

    In 2006, Vacheron Constantin introduced the special “Malte Chronograph Collection Excellence Platine”, which was a limited edition run of 75 watches cased in platinum. This exclusive series was fitted with a graceful sandblasted dial sparkling in platinum, sporting a classic chronograph design with an outer telemeter scale, the applied white gold markers and Maltese cross in high polish shimmers with added depth to the appeal of this modern design. Its robust 41.5mm case features fan-shaped lugs and a sapphire crystal caseback for collectors to admire the high-grade manual-wind caliber 1141.

    The present example is number 20 of this series and is preserved in excellent overall condition. This watch comes with the complete package including the original certificate, presentation box, leather wallet, instruction manual and service booklet, as well as the Vacheron Constantin Certificate of Authenticity confirming the timepiece from 2006. With this exceptional rarity, large case size and modernity, this piece will make the perfect addition for any discerning Vacheron Constantin collector.

  • 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.
