1960s Vacheron Constantin In 18k White Gold


This is a very fine 1960s vintage Vacheron Constantin men’s ref. 6123 in solid 18k white gold measuring 26.25×31.5mm, which is a smaller-sized watch, but normal for the 1960s. This watch is special because it housed one of the thinnest movements of the time. The Vacheron Constantin caliber 1003 was developed by Audemars Piguet, together with Jaeger-LeCoultre, and is an ultra-thin movement. It is only 1.64mm high, which was quite a feat to produce. This watch is only a bit over 5mm thin including the crystal! We just had the high-grade Vacheron Constantin movement serviced and it is running perfectly. The previous owner had a custom 18k white-gold ladder bracelet expensively produced for this watch and it is soldered to the case, presenting a very elegant look. There is a considerable amount of 18k gold in this watch – 50g not including the movement! The bracelet will fit up to a 7.75″ wrist. The dial is completely original and looks very good for its early 1960s manufacture date. This fine Vacheron watch would suit either a man or woman.
