Dial, case and movement signed. DIAM. 48 mm. THICKNESS 5 mm. This VACHERON CONSTANTIN pocket watch has remained in close to new condition still with its original hang tag. Apart from a few light scratches on the dial, the watch has never been polished and is a rare large thin pocket watch and only 2 movement numbers away from its almost similar pink gold version (see next Lot).
