Catalogue Note

The present watch, slim in construction, features strong faceted lugs characteristic of mid-century case design. Interestingly the lugs' shape are reminiscent of the brand's logo, the Maltese cross; indeed, if they were removed, tip to tip they would virtually recreate it. Housed within is the ultrathin caliber 1003, released in 1955 in celebration of Vacheron's 200th anniversary. While measuring 34 mm in diameter the overall aesthetic provides a good presence on the wrist and the watch is furthermore is very crisp condition.
