Vacheron Constantin 18k Teardrop Honey 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. We are inclined to call it honeypot as this is what comes up to our mind, when we see this beautiful warm and even patina.

The 18k rose gold case is playing so well with rose indexes and hands. The blue second hand is making a great contrast in the overall appearance.
