Vacheron Constantin Tear Drop 1940s

Here we have a beautifully finished Vacheron Constantin dress watch from the 1940s with unique teardrop lugs and an amazingly designed dial with so many details that it's difficult to mention them all.

On the caseback we have engraved the coat of arms of Alexander I, King of Yugoslavia. This refers that it either was a gift from the royal family to a state guest or even property of someone in the royal family. Also included is some documentation of Christies and Sotherby's.
