Vacheron & Constantin 18K Rose Gold Item #2600 SOLD
This 18K Rose Gold V&C comes with its original box and papers and it’s from 1940.
Unbelievably rare to find!
Complete with its original signed crown, signed 18K Rose Gold buckle, original V&C Box, and original hand signed Vacheron Certificate of Guarantee and the English language version of the Extract.
The signed 18K Rose Gold 3-piece case is in outstanding condition. It measures 36mm across without the crown and takes a 20mm strap. A really BIG case for the period, let alone for a dress watch. Take a look at the last 2 photos for an idea of how it fits (for reference, I am 5ft 9in, 160lbs). The dial is an older refinish and was very well done. It is striking along with the rose gold applied Arabic markers and original rose gold hand set. It also features a VERY high grade in-house, manual wind movement. Signed Vacheron & Constantin, Geneve Swiss. We cleaned the case only. No polishing or refinishing was done. During servicing we installed a NOS beveled glass crystal. It is in as wonderful vintage condition as you could hope to find.
It is 78 years old. You’d never guess that this watch is from that period. WWII was raging, the entire world was in turmoil and someone in New York received this beautiful timepiece.
We ordered a special handmade Louisiana Alligator strap to fit the V&C 18k gold buckle ($240 retail in our shop). It looks outstanding!
