Lot Essay

The present watch is one of the rarest examples of the celebrated "Cioccolatone" model by Vacheron Constantin. The combination of the pink gold case, attractive two-tone dial and the lesser known subsidiary seconds movement renders the watch a charismatic and exclusive look. It is therefore by little surprise that this watch was chosen for one of the world's most recognized books about collectors watches, I Signori del Tempo.
