Collectors of middle of the 90s watches will note that Vacheron produced a model in no more than 24 examples of any configuration, which means that the present Calatrava is definitely rare. It is a reference 4066 with a very gorgeous pink gold polished round case with snap on back and concave lugs: the conditions are excellent with some logic sins of wearing but maintaining the original proportions and quality. The cream dial has applied square and baton hour markers and Arabic numerals at 12, outer gilt minute divisions, gilt pointed baton hands, subsidiary dial at 6 for constant seconds. The watch is powered by the manual caliber P453/3B.
