1972 small model

Reinterpreting the historical model designed in 1972 – the Vacheron Constantin 1972 small model features a graceful silhouette imbued with a trim, clear-cut style, and featuring a perfectly cambered asymmetry that embodied the innovative spirit of the era. The asymmetrical shape was distinguished at the time by the highly coveted “Diplôme du Prestige de la France”, awarded to Vacheron Constantin on June 23rd 1972 in the “Salons d’honneur” of the Ritz Hotel in Paris. This was the first time this honour was granted to a watch manufacturer.

 

Crafted in 18-carat pink gold, the exquisite cambered case is perfectly suited for dainty writs and embodies Vacheron Constantin’s constant quest for refinement and perfection. The dial consists of two superimposed parts: the first serving as a “mirror” polished underplate and the second with 12 and 6 o’clock cut-outs revealing two Roman numerals creating a clever stencil effect, with its case sumptuously adorned with 232 brillant-cut diamonds (almost 1.70 carats).

 

With the alligator leather or silky-smooth “brushed“ satin straps, the 1972 small model exemplifies the charm and contemporary refinement of modern women.
