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 traditional line, the 222 or the Overseas.
This atypical 18k white gold rectangular case could have become Vacheron Constantin’s creative expression in the 1970s.
The watch is enhanced by a guilloché case with a florentine decoration, representing the perfect union between high jewelry and watchmaking technicality in the finesse of its execution.
Here, the decoration technique is performed on the entire front and side of the gold case. On the dial, priority is given to legibility, with sword-shaped hands and large applied indexes.
The watch is powered by a manual mechanical movement from Vacheron Constantin.
