Notes

Very little information can be found on the rare reference 14169. Sporting a case design very similar to the Vacheron Chronometre royal reference 4907, its already large 37 mm case is further enhanced by the thick and straight lugs. Over the last 30 years, we could only find one other watch sold by Antiquorum, May 26, 2004, lot 6. Definitely one of the rarest chronometer versions.
