Because of its outstanding quality, beauty and value, Vacheron & Constantin's reference 4072 is one of the most highly coveted chronograph models. It was produced from 1938 to the late 1960s and available in yellow and red gold, steel and steel /gold. The chronograph pushbuttons came in two variations; they were either oval or - more commonly - rectangular. Three different chronograph calibres were used: Calibres 295, 434 and 492.
According to the records from the archives, this wrist chronograph dates from 1941. The harmoniously patinated dial has red gold indexes and Arabic numerals with red gold hands and blued chronograph hands - the design is elegant and timeless. The manual-wind movement features a 30-minute counter, which is a considerable achievement for the time this was made.
