A fine and rare Vacheron Constantin from the early 1950’s with a jumbo 37mm rose gold case. As vintage gold watches go, you’ll be hard pushed to fine something more attractive than this stunning vintage Vacheron!
If we had to pick a favourite brand for vintage gold dress watches, it would have to be Vacheron Constantin. Elegant, timeless and understated – everything a good dress watch should be (in our opinion anyway!).
This particular example features an original dial professionally restored and in absolute mint condition. It houses a calibre P453/3B manually wound movement signed "Vacheron & Constantin Geneve Swiss,” “Adjusted To Temperatures,” and “Seventeen 17 Jewels” and has recently received a full service as can be witnessed from its beautiful condition.
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 Cédex, Charles Dubois SA (the 170 inside the hammerhead).
You rarely come across jumbo Vacheron’s in rose gold in such stunning condition and unfortunately once this is gone we probably won’t see another for some time. Don’t let this one get away!
