The world’s oldest watch brand in continuous operation since its founding in 1755, Vacheron Constantin is often renown as a brand with a heritage characterized by dress watches. The present time-only manual reference 6068 is definitely one of them. Very elegant, with a case in yellow gold finely preserved, it is characterized by a snap back case with unusual long lapidated fancy lugs. The silvered dial has very tasteful applied yellow-gold baton indexes with second at six o’clock and completed by the Vacheron emblem, the writing at 12 o’clock and its original box.
