This is a one if a kind vintage watch. Vacheron & Constantin watchmaking manufacture is the oldest in the world, having been in business uninterrupted for over 250 years. The company was founded in Geneva in 1755.
In 1755 Jean-Marc Vacheron, a young watchmaker opened his workshop in the heart of Geneva. In 1819, an experienced entrepreneur, François Constantin joined the descendants of Jean-Marc Vacheron. For decades he criss crossed Europe, opening up new markets for the ingenious products of the now renamed Vacheron & Constantin
During the whole of the 20th century Vacheron Constantin continued to consolidate its reputation, extend its know-how and develop innovative ideas. Today, as in the past, the creations of Vacheron Constantin are the combined result of three qualities: technical expertise, design excellence and elaborate finish - like you can see in the watch we offer.
Today V&C produce a small number of exceptional watches -13,500 per year- showing the clear preference for quality over volume. Designing and producing all its intricacies in house, the factory also decorates each of its movements: angled bridges, drawn flanks, screws polished one by one, which are all then individually assembled by hand.

It's hard to belive that this watch is from 1961 considering the condition - for a watch thats almost 60 years old it is really well preserved.

The watch is beautiful and shines in every light. There is a small dot above the centre but thats all. Stunning! The case got some small signs of wear but what to expect? The solid gold bracelet is tight!
