Learn more about our exclusive – online only – auction carried out with Sotheby’s – one of the leading auction houses in the world. 5th -15th October, 2018.
For this occasion our heritage experts had selected 6 iconic vintage wristwatches from Vacheron Constantin’s Private Heritage Collection that cover six significant decades of our history – from the 40’s up to the early 2000’s – and range from simple display up to high complications.
In addition to this, two extraordinary behind-the-scenes experiences were offered, a “once-in-a-lifetime” visit of our Manufacture to discover a universe of craftsmanship, precision and passion for two guests.
Within the exclusive watch selection, classic and iconic Vacheron Constantin models could be found, such as an emblematic chronograph in pink gold from 1942 (re. 4072), a rare complete calendar featuring a distinctive triple gadroons case from 1945, exclusive to 50 pieces and the world-famous “Cioccolatone” fitted with the caliber 12”-1071, housing an 18K gold oscillating weight and ruby ball-bearing.
