Lot Essay

According to the Archives of Vacheron Constantin, the present watch was manufactured in 1952.

This reference 4178 is a particularly fine and well-preserved example of the celebrated model, impressing with the highly attractive two-tone silvered dial, beautifully harmonizing with the rare pink gold case.

Reference 4178, one of Vacheron Constantin's landmark chronograph models, was in production from 1938 until the early 1970s. Arguably one of the firm's most attractive designs, it features a generous case and the characteristic teardrop-shaped lugs.
