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.
