Introduction

A classic piece of 1960's Vacheron Constantin design, the ref. 7813 features a 25mm wide tonneau-shaped case with short lugs that enable this stunning timepiece to tightly hug the wrist, as was the fashion at the time. Crafted from 18k gold and featuring an unapologetically understated white dial, the ref. 7183 is a remarkably reserved timepiece with the level of sophistication that we have come to expect from Vacheron Constantin. Manually wound and fitted with the Vacheron Constantin cal. K1014 (produced by JLC), the ref. 7813 is an authentic example of vintage mid-century Haute horology as watchmakers focused on creating exceedingly beautiful timepieces instead of the hyper utilitarian watches that we have today.

THE CASE

A closer view of the pleasantly rounded, rectangular case design which is also refered to as the Tonneau.

THE CONDITION

A strong hallmark and a clear and crisp serial number are proof that this watch has been carefully looked after for all these years.

TIMING MACHINE READOUT

This reading was taken (crown down) with a ONEOF Accuracy Boutique Edition timing machine at time of cataloging. It is provided as a courtesy only, and shall not be construed as a warranty or guarantee of any kind. Please refer to our terms and conditions of sale for more information.

Condition

The overall condition of the watch is excellent. Dial is in superb shape, exhibiting no signs of aging or deterioration. Case shows a clear hallmark, which is consistent with light wear and minimal to no previous polish. Caseback has faint surface abrasions. The Vacheron Constantin strap and buckle appear to be original to the watch.

Please Note: Due to CITES considerations, if the watch is to be shipped outside of the USA, an alternative leather strap to the existing exotic skin version, shall be provided.

Our Perspective

A lovely classic tonneau-shaped watch by Vacheron Constantin- a brand that is most certainly underappreciated compared to its peers. A rare and unusual model, this 7813 is in excellent original conditon.
