Wristwatches with concealed dials were very popular in the early 20th century, the designs including covers consisting of either coins or monogrammed pieces that popped up at the push of a button.
In 1930, Vacheron introduced a wristwatch with an innovative system of gold shutters covering the dial and which could be opened and closed by sliding a small lever in the band. The louvered swivel shutter protected the watch crystal from damages.
The Shutter watch was reissued in 1997 in a limited edition of 125 examples and with the new name "Jalousie", the French word for "Shutter". The present watch is number 81 of this series.
