Offered here is a beautiful and rare vintage 1940s Vacheron Constantin ref. 4298 in an 18K gold case. The case measures 31.3 mm across by 39.5 mm long.  17 jewel, rhodium-plated brass Caliber 9″‘ V466 hand wound movement. The watch has an oyster dial and a combination of Arabic numerals and arrowhead indices for hour markers. Inner minute circle with black lines. The baton hour and minute hands are gold, the counterpoised seconds hand is in blued steel. The watch weighs 28.3 grams without the strap. That points to a heavy well made case.
