1960s Vacheron Constantin Ultra-Thin 18K WG (Ref. 6115) Black Dial
Few watch brands are as respected or revered within the watch world as the 3rd oldest watchmaker, Vacheron Constantin, whose doors opened in 1755. Known most notably for their quality of craftsmanship and design whether it is an ultra-complicated moon phase calendar or a simple dress model. There is a reason Vacheron Constantin belongs to the “Holy Trinity” of watchmaking, and it's the brand's precise execution that transcends generations and a devotion to innovation that has solidified its regaled position within horology.
The most celebrated element of ultra-thin watches is, of course, the movement. For good reason too, these mechanical marvels of engineering are the personification of precision and have inspired some of the most sophisticated and creative timepieces. The Vacheron Constantin ref. 1003 ultra-thin movement is based on the JLC ebauche 803 movement, and allows for the entire watch to measure in at 6mm thick.
