Lot Essay

This simply stunning Maîtres Cabinotiers Skeleton Minute Repeater represents the innovation, excellence and purity of design that defines the Vacheron Constantin brand. It is distinguished not only by the complexity and finishing of its hand-engraved movement but also by its perfectly proportioned 37 mm platinum case with classic mid-century style tear-drop lugs. Made in an exceedingly small limited series of just 15 watches, this exceptional timepiece is certainly one of the most elegant and exclusive minute repeating wristwatches of the modern era. As an important part of the Champion collection it is preserved and presented in excellent condition with full set of Certificate and boxes.
Among all the complications which can be found in wristwatches, minute repeaters are most probably the rarest, especially when considering that just a handful of manufacturers ever made this exclusive mechanism for their wristwatches. The present reference, 30030⁄000P-8200, is fitted with the caliber 1755SQ movement, introduced in 1992, which measures only 3.28 millimeters in depth, the thinnest minute repeater ever made by Vacheron Constantin and thinner than the more recent caliber 1731 that was introduced in 2013, which measures 3.90 millimeters.
The Vacheron Constantin Patrimony Skeleton Minute Repeater is a most desirable trophy in today’s collectors market and does not fail to impress on every level. Due to the extreme cost and complexity of minute repeating wristwatch production, only an exceedingly small number of such horological masterpieces are ever made. As well as being a minute repeater, Vacheron Constantin surpassed even this technical challenge by making the caliber ultra-thin, thus combining two complications requiring special manufacturing know-how and tremendous skills.
