In the 1930's, Vacheron & Constantin's elite Swiss workshop produced only twenty-five to thirty-five timepieces per day, making their vintage watches far scarcer than their modern counterparts. Today's offering showcases this striking model made exclusively for the U.S. market.
It features dramatic hooded barrel lugs and a two-tone dial. Its distinctive lugs give the appearance that the band is integrated directly into the watch.
It is fully V & C down to its original case, dial, and hands.
Its original case is scratch-free with signs of having been previously polished. It presents nicely on the wrist. Its dial has just been restored by one of the leading dial experts in North America. And its high-grade handwound Vacheron cal. 433 movement has been recently serviced. It is keeping accurate time, running within approximately +11 seconds per day face up.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function and a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity.
