You are bidding for very rare Vacheron&Constantin Geneve "Oversize" 18k watch, which is in good condition.This elegant Ref. 6308 was part of the embodies spirit 1950's.
Vacheron&Constantin Geneve were made in several sizes, starting at 30mm in diameter, not including the crown. The majority were 32 and 33mm with some 34mm. Very rarely, Vacheron&Constantin case makers produced 36mm models such as the example we see here. These are highly sought after watches because the seemingly small difference in size is significant and adds to the ‘presence’ of the watch.
The case made from 18k solid yellow gold, has polished finishings. The case measuring approximately around 36 mm across excluding the crown and 43mm from lug to lug in very good condition, with minor surface scratches that are to be expected on any watch of this age.
