Contrary to watchworld’s rumors, this distant cousin of the Royal Oak and the Nautilus was not designed by Gerald Genta, the father of the two emblematic models. Nonetheless, the Vacheron reference 222 does rely on the same aesthetic, with a lavishly polished stainless steel case and an integrated bracelet. Its automatic movement is even based on the same Jeager-LeCoultre ebauche as the ultra-thin calibers of the AP and Patek. Yet, the resemblance stops there, as the 222 is resolutely faithful to the patrimony emblem of Vacheron Constantin : the Maltese Cross, which adorns on the dial, lower right lug, case back and clasp. On the wrist, it wears magnificently, explaining why this rare watch was Paul Boutros’ choice back in 2013, as you can read here.
