This is a very fine circa 1964 VACHERON CONSTANTIN ref. 6506 18k. solid gold “Extra Flat” 33mm. thin (4.5mm.) This is still one of the thinnest mechanical wrist watches available. Measuring only 1.64mm. thin, this movement still holds the record. Vacheron recently re-launched this movement in 2010, celebrating the movement’s 55th. anniversary and called the watch the “Historiqu ultra-thin watch.” This caliber 1003 manual winding, rhodium plated VACHERON movement is adjusted to 5 position-just cleaned and accurate. The solid gold case is in very fine condition overall. This dial was expertly restored, while maintaining the original gold, needle-thin markers and hands. This VACHERON CONSTANTIN is as sleek and sophisticated as it gets! Vacheron has been in operation, uninterrupted since 1755, making it the oldest watch manufacturer in the world-over 250 years.
