Vacheron & Constantin

Vacheron & Constantin Papillon

Vacheron & Constantin Papillon


Brand: Vacheron & Constantin
Typology: Vintage dresswatch
Year: 1954
When one speaks of rarity and exclusivity one immediately thinks of Patek and Vacheron, In the 1940s/50s they were the epitome of luxury and elegance.
Here we are dealing with a piece of extreme rarity, more than the common ref.4951, seen very few times for sale except at prestigious international auctions.
The levels of finish, the case and dial workings, the technical merits with which the hand-wound movement is equipped, makes this watch is a master piece for any collection.
Launched in 1949, the reference 4755, as the brother embodies the voluptuous curves and futuristic shapes that defined post World War II design. Its tapered sides and faceted glass were not only a bold aesthetic choice, but technically rigorous to execute.
The case’s dynamism is valued and developed by a guilloché dial,applied rose gold indexes, and a small seconds sub-dial.
