Vacheron Constaintin are one of the finest Swiss watchmakers in history, and in the time-peiod that this watch was produced they were of similar quality to that of Patek Philippe as the world's best. The watch dates from the early 1940s, and this is a gorgeous example. The watch has been serviced by a Rolex trained watchmaker and both the movement and case have bee fully cleaned and overhauled.
THE DIAL: 100% mint, the champagne colored dial with black Arabic numerals, signed Vacheron and Constantine to centre. Dial with very fine and original blued steel hands. Diameter is 32 mm. The crystal is also in excellent condition. The dial looks a tiny bit hazy due to reflections from the crystal but is in fact perfect.
THE MOVEMENT: 100% mint, with gilded plates and finely engraved balance cock. A shiny steel Bosely regulator, and ruby endstone setting, blue steel screws. A cut two arm bimetallic balance, with overcoiled hairspring. The movement fully signed Vacheron & Constantin to movement front and back plates, with 15 jewels and Vacheron "maltese cross" and number, 309,xxx. The watch with its original silver-gilt winding crown, in good condition for its age.
THE CASE: 100%, the solid 18k rose gold case measures an impressive 35 mm x 36 mm. The front cover is excellent and the watch with a snap on solid 18k gold rear cover. The case with Swiss hall-marks, 18k and 0.750 karat gold marks. The top part of the case also with 18k gold mark. The case number is 27739 and with a fine "V & C" stamp for Vacheron and Constantin. The case is in stunning condition, with no dents, or deep marks, just some fine surface scratches one might expect on a nearly 70 year old watch. If they were not there it would indicate the case had recently been repolished to look like new. The watch comes with new high quality leather watch strap and with a fine quality velvet covered presentation box.
