Vacheron-1972-Prestige-Boutiqe-Special

On the occasion of the opening of it’s new flagship store in Paris, Vacheron Constantin recently revisited it’s stylish, assymetric “1972” model. This elegant watch, named 1972 Prestige, is offered in two variations: the limited edition of 40 “boutique edition in white gold with silvered dial and black leather strap . This version will only be available through the VC boutiques.

The non-limited version has a different pattern on the dial, grey satin-finished sunburst dial with chevron motifs is shown aboveand is recognizable by its rose gold hands.

the 1972 measures 25mm x 47mm, and has a asymmetrical white gold case (8.72mm thick). In addition to the original version, it carries the  hallmark of Geneva, hand-wound VC caliber 1003. This caliber is known as the thinnest hand-wound caliber in existence, only 1.64 mm. thick. The Caliber 1003 is a revised version of the original, introduced in 1955 at the 200th anniversary of VC.

The 1972 Prestige is a very stylish and eccentric addition to the VC programme and the high-end watch scene in general. Not the most obvious choice, but imagine the appearance wearing it with your handmade-suit.  The limited edition is available at $ 40,000.
