Why We Love it

We’re gonna go out on a limb and guess that you’ve never seen a dress watch quite like this one before. 

Based on a historical model from the 1930s, the Vacheron Constantin Historiques Jalousie features a unique ‘shutter’ mechanism that hides the dial from view via the use of a slider on the lower half of the case. Designed in a vein similar to that of the Jaeger-LeCoutlre Reverso, it’s a quirky and interesting feature that’s certainly anachronistic in the age of sapphire crystals, but, nevertheless, brings an instant smile to one’s face.

This particular Jalousie from the late 1990s is housed in a stylized rectangular 26mm rose gold case with a sapphire crystal, a smooth polished bezel, a Maltese cross-signed crown, and a slidable shutter for viewing the time. It features a classic white enamel dial with applied 'stick' indices, a blued steel ‘feuille’ handset, and a sub-seconds display.

Powered by the manually-wound Vacheron Constantin Calibre 1017, the Reference 91002 comes paired to a black alligator strap with a yellow gold Maltese Cross deployant clasp. A delightful recreation of a vintage model in the Art Deco style, it’s simply a joy to wear. 

Just remember to open the shutters before trying to tell the time!

Overall Condition

The case is in fantastic condition overall showing light signs of wear from gentle use. White enamel dial with applied indices and subsidiary register ring is in outstanding condition with matching blued-steel 'feuille' 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.
