two gorgeous Art Deco VC table clocks hit high scores at Antiquorum

Antiquorum held a sale in geneva on March 11. It seems that the market for vintage Vacheron Constantin's is on the rise if the prices are anything to go by.

Other than the 4178 chronograph which sold for CHF 32500 and which berny posted below two other table clocks hit high scores which doesn't surprise me considering that they are more than just clocks but true works of art

- Lot  172: case made by Verger Freres in 1929. Rectangular black onyx mounted upon two nephrite blocks, decorated with gold straps with black enamel line detail, terminated with lapis lazuli cabochons, nephrite block feet, back with black enamel panel on gold secured by four screws, lapis lazuli winding crown. Estimated between CHF 20 000-40 000 it sold for an impressive CHF 96 100

And the beautiful chronograph in Pink gold made a nice 27 000 € in Geneva That's good for Vacheron but not helping me actually ^^ But worse one of dream watch on top of the wish list that was in Hong Kong, a catastrophic sale where a lot of watch were not sold. except this, which hit 30 000€ . Damn it, I have to move it from wish list to dream list... ;(
