Inspired by a model created in the 1930’s, this “Jalousie” wristwatch belongs to Vacheron Constantin’s “Les Historiques” collection. Its originality lies in a unique system of shutters which cover the dial and can be opened and closed with a small slide set with a cabochon sapphire. Its rectangular waterproof case is in 18K pink gold, setting off the white gold of the shutters. The hand-winding mechanical movement features a seconds hand at 6 o’clock. In keeping with its strong character, this timepiece has a white dial with blue steel hour markers.
