Year of Manufacture:




mint and rare condition 18k gold Vacheron and Constantin wrist watch with a new leather watch band. The watch has been fully serviced, overhauled and keeping excellent time and guaranteed to be an authentic Vacheron wrist watch. 
The watch has just been fully overhauled and cleaned by my watch-maker  and is keeping excellent time.

This watch is guaranteed to be a genuine Vacheron and Constantin Deco period wrist watch, in excellent condition and is signed to the dial, movement, and to the case. This Vacheron and Constantin manual wind watch is in very fine and superb condition and a fabulous and highly practical watch for every-day use.  You can also visit our shop at vintagewatchstore where there is a wide variety of fine antique & vintages watches.

THE DIAL: 100% mint, the restored satin silver dial with raied gold Arabic numerals, signed "Vacheron and Constantin, Geneve" to the centre. Dial with very fine and original blued steel dauphine hands with subsidary seconds. Diameter is 21.5 mm. The crystal is also in excellent condition

THE MOVEMENT: 100% mint, with polished and highly reflective steel plates and finely engraved balance cock in stunning condition. A shiny blued steel Bosely regulator, and ruby endstone setting, blue steel screws. With  Vacheron balance, with overcoiled hairspring and with 16 jewels and six adjustments.  The  gold winding crown in fine condition. This movement is a very fine and original example of Vacheron classic engineering at its very best. The movement clearly signed, "Vacheron and Constantin, Swiss Made, Geneve and number 392548. The plates in excellent condition, unlike so many other pre-1940 watches.

THE CASE: 100% mint, the 18k gold two piece stepped case measures an impressive 25.5. mm  x 39.5 mm. The front of watch with nicely finished front bezel, typical of early  Vacheron watches. The case is as near mint as one can find with no dings, dents or scratches to the top. The front cover is excellent and the watch with a snap on 18k gold rear cover and fully hall-marked as well.  The case  clearly marked  Vacheron and Constantin, and with London import hall-marks and 18k and 0.750 gold marks and case number of 261,766.

THE BRACLET: 100% mint, the watch comes with a new crcoo-finish leather watch bracelet in excellent condition, with a ladder clasp to the back.  The bracelet is around 6 inches long, so will need lengthening to suit. The watch comes with a new leatherette presentation box to store the watch in when not in use.

Overall, this is a very fine and highly desirable early Vacheron and Constantin wrist watch, dating from 1939. The watch keeps excellent time and is very useable for every-day wear or for best wear on holidays and birthdays.
