Since its founding in 1755, Swiss watch manufacturer Vacheron Constantin continues to uphold a reputation as producer of the world's finest timepieces.

The case is rendered in opulent 18 karat solid yellow gold; the substance and weight are breathtaking.

The movement is in impeccable condition and still in excellent running order. A number of inscriptions can be seen impressed into the metal, including one reading "8 Eight Adjustments".

A non-adjusted watch does not ensure any correction in the daily error rate however; an adjusted watch has had extra care to ensure that variances among orientations is minimized.

Eight is the maximum number of adjustments a watch movement can possess.

Other inscriptions on the movement read "18 Eighteen Jewels", "Swiss", "394271" and "Vacheron & Constantin".

The back of the case is engraved with the stylized initials "CMS" while the interior features a manufacturer's mark which says "E.E.R., 18K, 217581".

This area also boasts beautiful engine-turned decoration. Vacheron Constantin was the first company to employ engine-turning in watch making as well as standardizing movements into calibers.

Upon opening, a second cover is engraved "Charles M. Stephenson, Pittsburgh."

The dial is exquisite, boasting a brushed, demure silvery finish with gold hands and gold serifed Arabic numerals.

There is a second hand at 6 o' clock and "Vacheron & Constantin, Genève" is printed in small black letters under the twelve.

There is some wear to the face and some areas of light scratching around the case, but, it remains in excellent condition otherwise. This is remarkable considering its age.

The circles and shadows on the watch face are reflections in the photo. The face is much cleaner than what the photograph depicts.

This is one watch that can claim to be as beautiful as it is collectible.
