The present Vacheron Constantin reference 4600 illustrates the horological expertise the illustrious Maison is reknown for. The unusually large and thin 36 mm pink gold case is expertly blended with a clean two-tone dial bearing applied gold bullet and arrow indexes, adding an additional depth to make a genuinely elegant dress watch.
The timepiece bears the highly-praised caliber P453/3B, a stunning manually-wound movement based on the Jaeger LeCoultre cal. 449 which Vacheron Constantin would encase in its thin watches during the 1940s until the early 1960s.
