This 1950s Vacheron & Constantin mimics the lines of Chevrolet cars from the same era, just as voluptuous and inspiring as those sculptural hot rods- this timepiece dashes us with it’s large proportions, defined lines and sophisticated dial.

The 18k rose gold case measuring  a large 31 x 44mm is in excellent condition and retains it’s defined lines and edges along with crisp hallmarks.

The majority of reference 4657 models that have appeared on the market were fitted with simple guilloché dials.
