You are bidding for very rare Vacheron&Constantin Geneve "Oversize" 18k watch, which is in good condition.This elegant Ref. 6308 was part of the embodies spirit 1950's.
Vacheron&Constantin Geneve were made in several sizes, starting at 30mm in diameter, not including the crown. The majority were 32 and 33mm with some 34mm. Very rarely, Vacheron&Constantin case makers produced 36mm models such as the example we see here. These are highly sought after watches because the seemingly small difference in size is significant and adds to the ‘presence’ of the watch.
The case made from 18k solid yellow gold, has polished finishings. The case measuring approximately around 36 mm across excluding the crown and 43mm from lug to lug in very good condition, with minor surface scratches that are to be expected on any watch of this age. The case back number 366129, hallmarked as 18k gold 750.
At the heart of this watch is a legendary high grade manual winding cal. P454/5B with 18 jewels. Runs great and all functions work as expected of vintage watch.
This model features a cream color original dial with beautiful gold indexes and special disign, signed "Vacheron&Constantin","Geneve", in good vintage condition. A beautiful hour, minute and seconds hands grace the dial.
The watch is presented on new vintage grey neutral leather strap around 23mm including watch case with neutral buckle.

A highly collectible vintage gold watch from horology’s most famous name which will provide an excellent financial investment as well as something to treasure and enjoy!

This is a truly first class example of a 1950 vintage Vacheron&Constantin Geneve "Oversize" 36mm, which is ready to wear and completely practical for everyday use and if treated with care, it will make an excellent investment or heirloom piece. Even though vintage gold Vacheron&Constantin prices have risen markedly in the past 2-3 years, we still feel good examples such as this, are still undervalued. And as each year goes by and the world market for vintage gold Vacheron&Constantin watches continues to expand, prices will inevitably climb ever higher.

Aesthetically and technically, a Vacheron Constantin represents the very summit of high precision and horological art, since 1755. They are always finished by hand, made piece by piece. Therefore, every Vacheron Constantin creation is endowed with the rare aristocratic virtue of very limited quantities, and truly merits its reputation as "The Proud Possession of Royalty".

It is a perfect addition to you watch collection. 

You can also use these wonderful watches as a gift to your friends. 

The watch will be carefully packed and shipped highly insured.

Item will be shipped from our European logistics center in Vilnius, Lithuania as an priority registered parcel by DHL Express (2 - 3 working days).

    Dear Kwok Fai.

    This is Rolex 1601, this model doesn't have a Quickset function, this function appeared in watches with a five-unit reference number beginning from the model Rolex 16000.

    For such watches we recommend to buy a box for automatic winding of watches. If you don’t wear a watch, then you should put it into a box and after it you don't have to set the date no longer.

    Best regards, SwissOnly.
