EXTREMELY RARE & EXOTIC
Vacheron Constantin Medicus Skeleton Chronograph Platinum 37mm Limited to 30 Pieces
* * You [u]WILL NOT See Many of These Around! **
[/u]Launched in 2000, the famous Medicus was inspired by the gorgeous cushion shaped watches from the 30s. Called the Medicus due to its pulsation dial enabling doctors to calculate the heartbeat of their patients. I won’t comment the “edition limitée” (limited edition) on the dial but the case and dial definitely have the WOW factor but turn the case over and screech (looking horrified and hair standing on your head) a cam controlled 1145 (Lemania based) chronograph calibre. It is probably the best finished version of the Lemania 1872 but a non column wheel chronograph calibre in a Vacheron Constantin is in my opinion inadmissible!
M. Cal. 1145, hand-engraved and skeletonized, rhodium plated, 17 jewels, straight line lever escapement, monometallic balance, shock-absorber, self-compensating flat balance-spring.Dial, case and movement signed.Dim. 37 x 37 mm.
