In the 1940s the Swiss brand gave life to a time-only wristwatch of authentic beauty with a nicely manufactured case and an even more special dial. The reference 4126 here offered is an example in 18k pink gold with a very thin case and the fancy teardrop lugs. This elegant style of lugs has somewhat become Vacheron Constantin’s signature design from the ’30s when they have been firstly introduced and then used on different specimens. The argentè dial is extraordinary for its complexity and structure: three different type of guillochè/linen decoration embellish the whole dial, three as well are the different applied indexes in yellow gold used to decorate it while a slim track for minutes/seconds with applied gold pearl dots enrich everything. On this 35 mm wide case has been equipped the caliber P453/3B. This is a wonderful example of a mid-century vintage Vacheron Constantin wristwatch.
