To me, the most interesting thing about this watch is how it compares to the watch you see right above it. The dials share a lot in common, with tachymeter scales, bi-register layouts, and a combination of Arabic numerals and stick markers, but the watches have completely different looks. Made just one year before the ref. 4072, this ref. 4083 has extremely bold and unusual lugs that speak to the adventurous spirit of Vacheron at that time. It might be a lot of look for today, but it’s a perfect little time capsule of watchmaking days gone by. $44,300
