Catalogue Note

Vacheron Constantin made its first minute repeating pocket watch in 1812 and its first minute repeating wristwatch in 1930. In the 19th Century Vacheron can be seen making multi complicated watches with repeating mechanisms combined with perpetual calendars or chronographs.

The Vacheron Constantin minute repeating perpetual calendar Ref. 30020 wristwatch is known for its classical appearance with distinctive flared lugs. The case is fitted with sapphire crystal to the dial and a display back made of acrylic which allows the tone of the repeater to be loud and produce a purer sound.  
The reference 30020 was produced in a limited series of 200 pieces .
