Some pictures of the Vacheron Constantin Sputnik Ref 47071.

 By: amanico : July 2nd, 2019-23:11
Launched for the 50th Anniversary of the russian satellite, it has been unveiled in 2007, in a limited edition of 10 pieces, in white gold. 

The case size is 40 mm. But the main interest of this watch is its dial, and the way it tells the time, of course. 

A legend. A myth. A bird you won't see everyday. 

When rarity meets beauty and fatal appeal.

A killer.

What a remarkable watch. It’s so different and unusual that I had to blink twice and still can’t decide if I just like it or love it

Reading the time on it is not only unusual but to me impossible as I simply couldn’t figure it out how to read it

By sheer coincidence we have a meeting with the VC boutique scheduled for this afternoon and I’ll show this picture

Reading the time may take some... time, but you will easily get used to that. After all, this is the kind of effort which is rewarding. [nt]

Yes, what I wondered and what I checked, too. [nt]

I did not see one before but is similar to the Explorer series.  
Love the moving hour and maybe they should make the sputnik go round as well smile
Thanks for showing this.   /W72

That's it. Thanks for your input, my friend. [nt]

Cool modern look for a classic concept.
