A story of innovation, audacity, efficiency and elegance over 260 years old that has absolutely no intention of stopping. This is the case of Vacheron Constantin, one of the watch brands most appreciated by fans for its desire to always improve. From 1755, year when Jean-Marc Vacheron founded the company in Geneva, the firm has experimented and given life to high-level innovations such as the world’s first horological complication (1770) while nine years later it designed the first engine-turned dial. In 1819 firstly appeared the double name of Vacheron & Constantin but only in 1970, the company officially changed its name to Vacheron Constantin. A few years earlier the company gave birth to a nice example of Royal Chronometer, produced in 18k yellow gold with screw back now here at auction. The present reference 7375 is part of the iconic Royal Chronometer family and houses the self-winding caliber K1072/2, a testimony of Vacheron Constantin’s “savoir faire” and attention to detail. The whole conditions of the watch are absolutely nice with very fresh engraving on the case back still visible. The satin silvered dial is immaculate, with applied faceted gold baton indexes and outer minute divisions. The date window is located at 3 o’clock while the hands are the usual baton shape realized in yellow gold and the VC logo has a small brilliant exactly in the middle. This watch is an elegant example of Vacheron Constantin timeless design.
