1960s Vacheron Constantin Royal ref. 6694 with its original buckle
As 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 Royal line, the 222, the Overseas or the Calatrava.
Vacheron Constantin proudly stamped their most outstanding timepieces with the phrase “Chronometre Royal” for over a century, whether it was a pocket watch or a wristwatch. And it was no different for the reference 6694 with its gorgeous automatic movement, the caliber K1072. In addition to being a finely tuned machine, this watch exudes a strong sense of style with its unique lug shape resembling Batman’s emblem (hence its nickname).
This timepiece is a testament to Vacheron Constantin’s daring in design and their ability to seamlessly marry form and function. With a modest diameter of 35 mm and a slender thickness of 11 mm, it possessed the perfect proportions to grace any discerning wrist.
The watch comes with its original buckle on a nice handmade leather strap by Atelier Romane.
