Why We Love it

Amongst the Holy Trinity that is Audemars Piguet, Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin — VC, relatively speaking, remains a bit of a sleeper and in our opinion deserves more of the spotlight.

Generally less understood than either of its respected compatriots, Vacheron Constantin has a legacy of producing some of the very finest high horology complications in history — and some of the loveliest.

Sports watches came later to VC, as pressure from competitors in the then-new 'Sports Luxury' category launched in the early 1970s forced the storied brand to evolve — but historically, more classically-styled dress pieces is where Vacheron cut their teeth.

This particular piece, a Reference 7296, is right on the line between classic and the avant-garde design language of the 1970s, and features an 18k white gold ultra thin case with an acrylic crystal, sunburst blue dial with applied indices, and Vacheron's Calibre K100/2 manual-winding movement within.

This outstanding piece comes fitted to a stunning 18k white gold woven bracelet integrated into the case, utilizing a slimline hook and lock clasp signesd with Vacheron's signature Maltese Cross — a subtle flex that only the wearer and the knowledgeable onlooker will acknowledge and appreciate.

With its endlessly appealing looks accompanied by a bold integrated bracelet design and extensive watchmaking pedigree, this is a great opportunity to snag an excellent, little-known model from one of the very best in the business!

 

*Due to the design of this bracelet, sizing alterations may require custom work. Lead time after measurements are established is 4-6 weeks.*


Brand Story

+
Few watchmakers can claim a lineage as long or as rich as that of Vacheron Constantin.
Established in 1755, the manufacture soon had a reputation for the elegance of its products, which included pocket watches with complicated movements and engine-turned dials. Even today, these are marks of a watchmaker’s expertise due to the skill and precision involved in crafting them. For Vacheron Constantin to have achieved such a feat in the eighteenth century is nothing short of remarkable.
This expertise carried the firm through the 19th century, earning it gold medals at National Exhibitions and blazing trails in the area of anti-magnetic timepieces. The 20th century saw further achievements, such as the opening of its boutique on the Quai de L’Ile in Geneva, where it still resides today.

Even through the Depression and the Second World War, when many watch companies were forced to band together with competitors or else face closure, the manufacture continued to thrive. Whether via its vintage-inspired Historiques collection or its adventurous Overseas line, modern Vacheron Constantin is a horological force to be reckoned with.
