The 1972 collection of watches by Vacheron Constantin includes the 1972 Prestige models, which brought a curved, a-symmetrical case to the wrists of those avid connoisseurs who had long awaited something different and memorable. The timepieces broke away from watchmaking norms and boasted a special watch housing the world's thinnest mechanical movement. Inspired by the design of the original Vacheron Constantin 1972 watch, the 1972 Prestige mirrored a very special watch. The original showcased the Prestige de la France coat of arms engraved into it and featured a rectangular shaped case crafted from precious metal. The prestige brought a curved lens to the wrist – an innovation that connoisseurs had never seen before.
The timepieces from the Vacheron Constantin 1972 watch collection feature oversized Roman numeral hour indexes, some of which have been stretched to create a dynamic and eye-catching element to the dial. The unique shape of the dial looks sensational with a black leather strap, providing something classic and timeless for the lady to enjoy whilst showing off her finest sparkling black sequin dinner dress. Out of all Vacheron Constantin’s elegant timepieces ever made, the 1972 line is definitely one that communicates an essence of luxury above all else. These opulent timepieces are the epitome of refinement, Whilst Roman numeral hour tracks keep the timepieces looking traditional, there is something incredibly modern and stylish about the unique case shape of a 1972 watch.
The company’s philosophy is to create timepieces that belong to small collections, offering the wearer something personal and exceptionally rare to enjoy. Vacheron Constantin put great emphasis on their ability to deliver a very personal service to their customers, not only is Vacheron Constantin’s clientele very niche, but those who invest in a watch, be that a 1972 watch, a Traditionelle watch or a Patrimony watch for example, are guaranteed a timepiece that promises to stand the test of time.
