This sublime timepiece from the legendary brand of Vacheron Constantin really hark back to the golden age of watchmaking when watches  are functional, balanced and subtle without neglecting fine watchmaking aspects. It was during a time when Vacheron’s 4240 triple date watch was popular and we believe, this version successfully brings back that cool desirability from that bygone era. Of course, the watch dimensions have been modernized.

Like the original, the watch features triple date indication with a pointer date hand, small seconds and moonphase complication.

Full specifications are as such:

  • Movement: Caliber 4400 QCL with Geneva seal, handwinding with hours, minutes, month in aperture, hand-type date, small seconds at 6 o’clock, day of the week in aperture. Power reserve of 65 hours.
  • Case: 40mm pink gold.
  • Dial: Metal.
  • Crystal: Sapphire.
  • Water resistance: 30m.
  • Strap: Alligator leather strap with pink gold buckle.
