A pristine example of a Vacheron Constantin 18k gold vintage watch from circa 1945. As you’ll probably know we have a soft spot for Vacheron Constantin gold dress watches and this is no exception.
It features a minimalist and perfectly proportioned two tone dial, set in an elegant 35mm 18 gold case. It houses the calibre P453/3C manually wound movement which has just been serviced and calibrated. The inner case back is marked with Vacheron & Constantin Swiss as well as the mark for 18k gold (18k, 0.750), Swiss proof mark (the Queen’s head) and the case manufacturer (the 170 inside the hammerhead).
The condition of this piece is as close to mint as you can expect for a vintage piece of this era. The case has been polished in its life but is free from any noticeably large dints or scratches. The dial is in pristine condition although to ere on the side of caution we’d suggest it may have been repainted at some point, although if so the work is of a very high standard.
All in all if you’re looking for a subtle and timeless gold dress watch, you’ll be hard pushed to find something nicer at this price point.
