Catalog Note

The present high fashion contemporary Vacheron Constantin is a beautiful and very limited edition example which embodies one of the firms most iconic case design concepts : the Hexagon or diamond shaped case design. Throughout history starting from the early 1900s up to the present example commissioned in the 1980s, Vacheron has always been known compared to other brands for injecting an extra high end sense of fashion into their timepieces which makes a Vacheron Constantin a Vacheron. In doing so, the firm found inspiration by creating wristwatches not only with gem extremely intricate gem setting patterns such as the Diamond set honey comb patterns that are designed along the bracelet in between each articulated bracelet link but also with the firms creative to design bracelet watches in especially unique case design concepts. Probably the most iconic example the firm designs timepieces in especially is the diamond shaped or hexagon case design of which the present example is designed with.

During the 1980s, commercial air travel had just become an everyday norm from the 1970s and high fashion style from haute couture boutiques in Paris spread throughout the world from Hong Kong to Dubai and London to New York ultimately establishing a new marketplace demand for a timepiece which could be as versatile in fashion and function as the Jetsetter’s capability to travel from one place to another. During this timeframe the main emphasis was placed on having a high fashion chic timepiece which could be worn day or night, to an evening out or casually with friends and as a result special order designs which appeared to be more of high end bracelets then the traditional timepieces became the emerging new fashion. To meet that demand, examples such as the present Vacheron were commissioned which are beautifully thought out concepts that take into account fashion and function combined with user ware and comfortability.

The present example which is designed with approximately 132 brilliant round cut diamonds are all carefully gem set into a honey comb or diamond pattern to further match the diamond case design concept upon which the time is revealed on. In addition, the bracelet is very carefully designed to wear similar to that of a high fashion cuff more so than a standard wristwatch as it allows for seamless design around the wrist, appearing as if the bracelet has no opening or closing clasps given the special attention to detail for the design to include a double deployant locking mechanism… a very special feature that only the highest fashion designs typically take into account.Also interesting to note on this example, the bracelet is extremely well made and thought as as each link is carefully articulated so that it remains flexible on the wrist rather than rigid giving it a more sophisticated style as well as additional comfort so it can be worn with ease and is not rigid not the wrist or overly heavy as some gold watches may be allowing for optimal comfort regardless of the activity engaged in.

Finally in addition to the the extremely unique diamond shaped or hexagon case design and carefully well throughout bracelet concept, and the expert gem setting skills carefully placed each honey comb diamond patterns along the bracelet exactly in between each articulated lug and further accented the timepiece with a sophisticated perfect condition ivory white diamond set dial to add further elements of elegance to this very versatile and high fashion style.

Overall the timepiece is a beautiful example of a very limited case design that was iconic to the brand as a whole throughout history and is extremely well preserved as it is offered here today.
