1960s Vacheron Constantin ref. 6378 in 18kt white gold
The oldest watch brand in the world, in continuous operation since its foundation in 1755, Vacheron Constantin was the first watch company to manufacture movements with interchangeable parts as early as 1839. Vacheron watches are admired for their Latin-influenced cases, well-balanced proportions and exquisitely finished movements of the highest quality.
The Geneva manufacture is known for its highly complicated masterpieces, including the Grande Complication du Roi Farouk, the Tour de l’Ile, and masterpieces such as the traditional line, the 222, the Overseas or the Calatrava.
This nice 3 hands watch in 18kt white gold is the perfect demonstration of how to create a sophisticated masterpiece using the simplest of watchmaking arts. Indicating the hours, minutes, seconds and date, the dauphine hands and applied indexes blended with the simplicity of the case create a beautiful appeal on the wrist. A watch unique, rare, and wearable for any occasion.
Inside the 35mm case is the very rare K1072 movement, produced in some of the most distinguished watches of the 1960s.
