For sale is a vintage circa 1955 mens Vacheron & Constantin manual wind 18k solid gold wristwatch. There is an inscription on the watch which can suggest a year of 1958. However according to the serial number and just the model itself the watch is definitely earlier than that (anywhere from 1950-1955 it could have been made). Vacheron is regarded at the worlds #2 watch behind Patek but they are actually harder to find when I travel to watch shows as are Pateks. This particular example is hard to find because not many were made in this jumbo 37 mm size during that time. The 18k solid gold case was never polished and it is a heavy thick case not thin like on some vintage 18k lower end chronograph watches.
The watch features a dial which may not look original but is probably original (I did ask a couple of experts as well and they agree that it is original). Everything on the watch besides the strap is original. The strap is a non Vacheron replacement but has the 18K gold buckle that was on the old band. This watch had one owner previously and when he passed away his grandson sold it to us. We serviced the movement and it is in perfect running order. As we do with any serviced watch we are offering a full one year warranty directly through our shop.
