Vacheron Constantin has been producing pieces with Tonneau-shaped cases since 1912, and it has become a signature design of the manufacture. Following this lead, in 2002 introduced the Royal Eagle Collection, aimed at a younger audience alongside the Overseas line. The Vacheron Constantin Royal Eagle recognizes the importance of timekeeping with hours and minutes functions, a center sweep chronograph seconds, minute and hour registers and illustrates Vacheron Constantin’s willingness to seamlessly blend elegance and sportiness. The present lot is a gorgeous specimen in pink gold with a tonneau stepped case and its iconic fluted Art Deco lugs. The guilloché white dial has oversized applied pink radial Arabic numerals, subsidiary dials for the seconds, the 12-hour and 30-minute registers, large double aperture for the date at 12. Further preciousness, the watch is sold with its original box and papers.
