Why We Love it

Vacheron Constantin is one of the finest watchmakers in the world, with a history dating back more than a quarter of a millennium. 

In the 1920s, the maison designed several watches for the American market featuring unique, angled dials and gorgeous Breguet numerals. In 2021, it released new watches based on this classical design — timepieces whose design is so close to that of the originals that it’s difficult to tell the two generations apart, despite a gulf of 100 years. 

This particular Historiques Américaine 1921 features a 40mm 18k yellow gold case, a sapphire crystal, a Maltese cross signed crown, a silvered-brass dial with Breguet numeral and matching handset, and running seconds at 3 o’clock — a reminder of a design that likely made use of pocket watch movements. It’s paired to a black alligator leather strap with a matching yellow gold Maltese cross signed pin buckle.

In very good condition throughout and showing little to no handling wear, it includes its inner and outer boxes, receipt dated to 2021, Geneva seal hangtag, serialized hangtag, instructional manual, warranty card dated to 2021, and certificate of origin.

While you might look upon this Vacheron as merely a simple dress watch, it’s much more than that — indeed, it’s a reminder of the importance of the North American market to a thoroughly Swiss company, and a watch made in appreciation of the relationship to its clientele. 

And it doesn’t hurt that it’s one hell of a looker, either!

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing only light wear from gentle use. Satin silver dial with printed 'Breguet' numerals is in as-new condition with with matching 'Breguet' handset. Signed crown.

Brand Story

+
Few manufactures can claim a lineage as long or as rich as Vacheron Constantin. Established in 1755, the manufacture soon made a reputation for the elegance of its products, by making pocket watches with complicated movements and engine-turned dials. Even today, these are marks of a manufacturer’s expertise, due to the skill and precision involved in crafting them, so for Vacheron Constantin to have achieved this in the eighteenth century is quite an impressive feat.

This expertise carried them through the 19th century, earning 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—as it does to this day.
