The Vacheron Constantin watch boasted a hand-chiseled 20k gold case with J.W. Packard's insignia on its reverse side. At the heart of the model was placed a reliable movement with grande complication.
The caliber animated central hours and minutes, small seconds at 6 o’clock, a 30-minute chronograph at 12 o’clock, a central chronograph seconds hand, a minute repeater as well as grande and petite sonnerie. All the functions were featured on a white dial, equipped with black Roman numerals.
The price of the Vacheron Constantin Packard Grande Complication Pocket watch was expected to go up to $500,000. It reached, however, almost $1.8 million. Acquired by Vacheron Constantin, the bidding timepiece was added to the brand’s collection of historical pieces.
