VACHERON CONSTANTIN

YELLOW GOLD GENTLEMAN’S WRISTWATCH, REF 4591


Launched in 1949, the reference 4591 embodies the voluptuous curves and futuristic shapes that defined post World War II design. After the austerity of the war, everyone embraced new lines that showcased materials that had previously been in short supply — a trend that Vacheron Constantin seized upon with this unique case silhouette. Its tapered sides and faceted glass were not only a bold aesthetic choice, but technically rigorous to execute. The case’s dynamism is tempered with a discreet dial, featuring a matte finish, slender yellow gold indexes, and a small seconds sub-dial.
