Why We Love it

The Holy Trinity of watch brands: Rolex, Patek Philippe, and Vacheron Constantin.

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 the new 'Sports Luxury' category introduced in the early 1970s forced the storied brand to evolve - but historically, classically styled dress pieces is where Vacheron cut their teeth.

This particular watch, a Reference 6508 "Disco Volante" dates to the early 1960s, remains in excellent condition throughout. Featuring an 18k yellow gold ultra-thin textured case, a sunburst champagne dial with applied gold indices and a matching pencil handset, and a hand-cranking movement.

With its timeless and endlessly appealing looks - combined with extensive pedigree, this is a great opportunity to snag an excellent heirloom quality timepiece from one of the very best in the business!

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing normal wear consistent with age and use. Non-luminous champagne sunburst dial is in very good condition showing light patination on edges with matching 18k yellow gold handset. Unsigned crown.

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.
