Vacheron & Constantin à Genève, "Les Historiques American 1921"

, Movement No. 5245811, Case No. 1237719, Ref. 82035/000R-9359, Cal. 4400/1, 40 x 46 mm, circa 2012

An extraordinary Geneva wristwatch in mint condition, with original box and original certificate

Case: 18k pink gold, screwed on glazed back, V&C 18k pink gold buckle. Dial: silvered.

The large, pillow-shaped case makes this model the modern interpretation of the automobile driver’s watch Vacheron & Constantin had developed in 1921 exclusively for the U.S. market in a very small series of 12 timepieces. The dial was arranged at an angle of 45 degrees for easy readability while driving. The crown sits in the upper right corner of the case, which gives the watch its unique, extravagant appearance.
The updated version differs from the earlier models in its comfortable size and the fact that it is fitted with the modern hand wind calibre 4400 AS. The subsidiary second dial now sits at a right angle to the crown at 3 o’clock and not - as in the original - opposite at 6 o’clock.
Case: as new
Dial: as new
Movm.: as new, capable of running
