A unique style characterizes this beautiful Vacheron Constantin reference 222. Nowadays the 222 that appeared at auction are very rare and represent very coveted collectors items, especially when they are kept in excellent condition. This model was in fact produced in a limited series of 720 pieces: 500 in steel, 120 in steel and gold and only 100 in gold. Despite being a Time-Only, its design is unlike any other watch in the Vacheron Constantin production due to the mix of audacity, classicism and sportiness typical of the 1970s years in which it was designed. To embellish this lot offered at auction, probably, the diamond-set that adorns the entire watch from the bracelet to the dial pass through the ring, was a special request. The elegance and the charm that this watch releases after the addition of the beautiful set of diamonds are remarkable when added to the particular ribbon motif on the bracelet. The clean dial, without indexes for the hours and perfectly geometric, presents only the two dauphine hands in yellow gold. We are in the presence of an absolutely unique object for the type of decorations it offers and the beauty it gives off, an example of high craftsmanship and absolute elegance.
