Why We Love It
In a marketplace full of sporty tool watches, its sometimes easy to forget that timepieces can also be elegant and artistic expressions of the wearer's style.
This unusual Vacheron Constantin, Reference 34015 dates to the 1950s and features a beautiful Art Deco style slimline case, with a deeply scalloped upper case surrounding a clean gold toned dial with printed Breguet indices. Powered by the VC Calibre K1014 manually wound mechanical movement, it measures only 6mm in thickness, giving it a great wrist presence that belies its diminutive 34mm size.
This lovely piece harkens to a time when personal style wasn't dictated by social media influencers or celebrity endorsements, and legendary manufacturers like Vacheron Constantin were doing high-style dress watches in a serious way.
Few manufactures can claim a lineage as long or as rich as Vacheron Constantin. Established in 1755, the manufacture soon made a reputation for the elegance of its products, by making pocket watches with complicated movements and engine-turned dials. Even today, these are marks of a manufacture’s expertise, due to the skill and precision involved in crafting them, so for Vacheron Constantin to have achieved this in the eighteenth century is quite an impressive feat.
This expertise carried them through the 19th century, earning gold medals at National Exhibitions and blazing trails in the area of anti-magnetic timepieces. The 20th century saw further achievements, such as the opening of its boutique on the Quai de L’Ile in Geneva, where it still resides today. Even through the Depression and the Second World War, when many watch companies were forced to band together with competitors or else face closure, the manufacture continued to thrive—as it does to this day.
