Lot Essay

The present watch is a very nice example of a vintage Vacheron Constantin wristwatch that has clearly been looked after and well preserved by its previous owner. The gilt dial can be seen under the aging black overlay creating a very unique aesthetic that can only be found on a dial from this period. Set against the red day and date it is increasingly attractive. To find a reference 4241 with black dial is extremely rare. The pink gold case is of a true pink gold hue that is achieved by the level of copper in the alloy. The teardrop lugs in this light pink tone are simply stunning. Overall this wristwatch matches all those qualities a collector would hope to see on a great 1940s timepiece and furthermore it is stamped VXN to the movement to indicate it was made specifically for the American market.
