This Vacheron Constantin Chronograph 4072 has a mechanical manual winding Vacheron Constantin caliber 492 (built on a Valjoux ebauche) chronograph movement. It's rhodium plated with fausses cotes embellishment, and it's constructed with 19 jewels, and anti-shock device, and a beryllium balance with timing screws. It includes a straight-line lever escapement, a self-compensating Breguet balance spring, and an index regulator.
