If you are looking for an elegant and complicated vintage timepiece, look no further. This extremely rare Richard Triple Calendar Chronograph in 18k pink gold offers you the looks of a watch way above its price tag, reminiscent of Universal Geneve, Vacheron Constantin and Jaeger-LeCoultre.
It comes with a glossy black dial and contrasting gilt printing that really shines in the light. What makes this example unusual is that it was cased in a solid 18 carat pink gold case during a time where most of the watches were cased in yellow gold. What you get is a warmer tone of gold together with the matching rose gold leaf hands and hour dot markers.
By vintage standards, this is indeed a complicated watch with a triple calendar displaying the day and month through the two apertures at 12 o’clock and the date on the outer track with a red arrow pointer. It can be easily set via the pushers at 7 and 9 o’clock. Together with the full chronograph complication, the Valjoux 72C beating inside this Richard not only demonstrates its quality but makes for an incredibly useful timepiece.
Paired with an elegant suit or a button up shirt with half rolled sleeves, this Richard Tripe Calendar Chronograph is one of the most beautiful dress piece.
