    Hi everyone!

    My uncle found a gem from his late father. Was wondering if anyone can identify and share some details on this vintage Vacheron Constantin. It looks like this is from the 1950s?

    Care to share some thoughts. Thanks in advance!

    You could probably contact Vacheron and give them the serial number on the case back and the movement and they could give you the reference number of the watch. Alternatively, the reference no. sometimes is carved into the inner case back. It is a good looking watch indeed congrats on the find.

    I searched for your watch in my book „Artists of Time“ about Vacheron Constantin, but I didn’t find your specific model. All I can tell you is that they built watches with rectangular shapes since 1940 but most of them appeared in the early fifties.

    Good luck in the research. For sure that watch is in incredible condition considering it's age. Those square styles were the hot setup back in the 40's and 50's.

    One of the best brands for heritage information if you can get to a VC store.

    Hopefully you live somewhere within reason of a Vacheron Boutique. If so bring there and I'm sure one of their customer friendly and highly informed sales people will do their best to let you know what ever there is to know about it.
