In light of the watch world’s renewed interest in slim, elegant and skeletonized timepieces, we are pleased to offer here this beautiful Vacheron Constantin wristwatch. Its perfect proportions combined with the very thin case and the skeletonized structure make this watch one of the nicest examples ever produced from Vacheron regarding time-only watches. The three-body, solid band in white gold of 30 mm in diameter reveals, through a sapphire dial, the intricacy of the mechanism while, on the opposite side, the glazed sapphire case back allows for an even more impressive view of the complicated structure of the gold caliber 1003/2 which can be admired in all of its glory. To indicate the time, two thin hands of black color, while the silver outer ring has Roman numerals. Housed in a skeletonized case, the present Vacheron Constantin Ref. 33 114 is an amazing example of movement finishing produced by the manufacturer. The movement combined with a skeletonized case displays the magnificence and artistry that Vacheron produces in its movements.
