More information

With the popular arising of neo-vintage we are sure that this rarely seen timepiece is something that will interest even the most seasoned collector.

In the late 1980s, Vacheron Constantin initiated two projects aimed at creating innovative calibers for wristwatches featuring the renowned complications of a tourbillon and a minute repeater. The first piece, the ref. 30050, was introduced in 1992 in a limited edition of 300 in yellow gold and platinum, marking their first venture into wristwatch tourbillons. Crafted in yellow gold and adorned with a power reserve indicator, this rare tourbillon timepiece boasts a meticulously symmetrical architecture, evident in its dial, rendering it a sophisticated and highly coveted work of art in the realm of fine watchmaking. The watch's exceptional quality extends to its meticulous finishes, including Côtes de Genève, perlage, polishing, and beveling. If you look closer you will see the Malese Cross in the tourbillon. According to insights from Carole Lambelet and Lorette Coen's book, "The World of Vacheron Constantin," the caliber 1760 movement within this watch was collaboratively developed with Nouvelle Lémania.

To our knowledge, only a handful of other pieces in yellow gold have surfaced at international auctions thus far.
