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.

The Patrimony line is to Vacheron as the Calatrava line is to Patek Philippe — classic, understated and timeless. This particular Patrimony from the 2000s is a complicated masterpiece: Housed in a 36mm 18K white gold case, it features a sapphire crystal, a signed, 18K white gold crown, a date corrector, and a polished bezel. 

But what if you wanted to access the incredible designs and beautiful movements of the mid-20th century without paying eye-watering auction prices?

That’s what Vacheron Constantin’s Historiques collection is for: Each reference is a contemporary reissue of a vintage Vacheron timepiece. Beautiful to behold, they’re haute horlogerie watches without the worry that comes with fragile dials and discontinued movements.

This particular Historiques timepiece, a Reference 47101, dates to circa the late 1990s - early 2000s and features a beautifully sized 36mm 18K yellow gold case with faceted teardrop lugs, a sapphire crystal, a signed crown, and a polished, stepped bezel. Inside you'll find a gorgeous opaline silver dial with applied indices, an outer tachymeter scale, a 1/5th-seconds track, a yellow gold ‘pencil’ handset, and a dual-register chronograph with 30-minute and running seconds totalizers.

Powering this impressive movement and visible via a sapphire exhibition caseback is the Vacheron Constantin Calibre 1140 hand-wound chronograph movement, a highly finished version of the Lemania 2310 that many know as the Omega Calibre 321 of Speedmaster fame.

This gorgeous, vintage-inspired chronograph from one of the Holy Trinity of watchmaking is simply an incredible timepiece in every sense. A truly stunning object to behold.

How can you go wrong?

Overall Condition

The case is in excellent condition overall showing normal signs of wear consistent with age and use with light oxidation throughout and factory finishing. Opaline silver dial with applied indices and gold subsidiary register rings is in outstanding condition with with matching 'pencil' handset. Signed crown. Sapphire exhibition caseback.

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.
