On a daily basis, we are inundated with requests for our suggestions on finding the "perfect" vintage dress watch. There are of course a multitude of possibilities when considering fine men's timepieces from the past century, but our criteria remain consistent.
A proper dress watch should be thin and unobtrusive, cased in a precious metal, and feature a simple dial layout without unnecessary complication or clutter. Furthermore, it is entirely unnecessary to spend your whole watch budget on a dress piece - there are literally hundreds of fantastic options for relatively little money. Be it Early American, Japanese, or Swiss in origin, so long as these criteria are met, you're on the right track.
When we spotted this 18K White Gold Vacheron Constantin from the 1950s, our jaws hit the floor. In many ways the exact opposite of the watches we wear on a day to day basis, the simple beauty of this square-cased piece must be seen to be appreciated. As cool as so many of our watches are, there is something about a Vacheron Constantin - particularly an ultra thin white gold Vacheron Constantin - that is simply timeless. There is little wonder why they are the world's oldest continually operating watch manufacture.
This example is a very rare reference 6702, and one of only a few produced in white gold. There watch has just enough patina to the case and dial to really make it stand out as well aged, without the excessive wear often seen on pieces from this era. With a recent mechanical overhaul and Extract From The Archives of Vacheron Constantin, you can rest assured that this is not a neglected or abused horological artifact, but one that has been loved and appreciated, and is ready for ongoing use.
For all of you seeking something to wear that is a little more...special...for those special occasions, look no further.
