Vacheron Constantin with exotic lugs and thinnest movement.
18K gold Vacheron Constantin with deuxieme movement, the thinnest mechanical movement made at the time.
This is a great dress watch from one of the most respected manufacturers in the history of watchmaking.
The solid 18 karat gold case features a wide flat bezel surrounding the all original dial. The lugs that extend off of the case are split through the centre and are rejoined at the end where the spring bars are fitted. This configuration is similar to the famed Patek Philippe Officers watch, only more dramatic given the cut outs in the side profile of the lugs.
The watch is fitted with the manual wind Vacheron calibre 1003, shared with another very well known watch brand, Audemars Piguet. This movement was nick-named the Deuxieme as it was only 2 mm thick and still managed to be timed to 5 positions and adjusted to Heat, Temperature and Isochronism. The watch was just serviced by my watchmaker and is keeping excellent time
The watch measures 32 mm wide by 38 mm long and is supplied on a brown Crocodile strap.
