1957 Vacheron Constantin Chronomètre Royal “French case” with extract

This beautiful Vacheron Constantin has an interesting history. The mythical movement P1008/BS, part of the Chronometre Royal family, was produced in Swiss in the 50s and finished in France, in a so-called French case. In a few word, this is a superb example of a very rare model. A collector’s choice.

Featuring a 18kt yellow gold case, a light cream dial with 18kt gold markers and hands and a very thin crown, this watch shows a great mix of boldness and understated elegance.

The watch is in excellent condition. The case is close to new and appeared to never have been polished. The dial is incredibly clean, as are the hands.
