The present watch displays a very attractive 35mm diameter yellow gold fluted case with wonderful claw lugs. The red day and month are indicated via apertures and the date via a central hand showing against a wonderful two-tone champagne dial with red calendar track. As this particular type of watch represented only a very small portion of the Vacheron Constantin’s production, they are very hard to find and remain a rare treat for the discerning collector.The watch comes with an extract of the archives and is supplied to its original vintage frog leather strap and original gold buckle.
Vacheron Constantin has a long history of producing calendar watches. It's first identified complicated timepiece is a full calendar from 1790. However, it was not until the launch of reference 4240 in 1942, that this complication entered the brand’s catalog as a complication produced in series and no longer as one-offs. These elegant timepieces came in several different case metals and dial variations and all, except the version with the moonphase, housed the manual winding caliber 455.
