Lemania Cal 321, indeed.

And same than the Patek 5070. ...  

That is a Lemania. [nt]

Here's a photo I took a while back. Regards, Baruch ...  

Dial variations

 By: respo : November 12th, 2020-06:53
First, apologies for the poor quality of my photo. It cannot compare to some of the other excellent images of this great watch, especially the macro of the dial above. As you can tell from this image, there were variations in the dial manufacture for the ...  

I can only agree, what a beautiful one...

The sad thing is both of us are crying for not having it anymore (even if for different reasons)... Indeed what a gorgeous VC, it has everything we love front and back side... My "ex" one says hello ...  

Lovely hue

 By: VinnieD : November 11th, 2020-15:14
that fits this Vacheron very well but I have to admit that I am a sucker for classic dials (silver or black) and the Taiwanese special black dial platinum is just a killer Guilloché dial too pic credit JGLYDON ...  

Oh that's good

I've always loved this watch in the salmon dial, but that black dial definitely gives it a run for its money

Hyper rare.

 By: amanico : November 11th, 2020-23:08

This is rare indeed!

Thanks for sharing. I see your point

Exactly my sentiments. [nt]

My pleasure, my friend.

 By: amanico : November 11th, 2020-23:08

No doubt! That watch is gorgeous.

I have a pedestrian Yellow gold white face version on its way. Perhaps I should have looked a bit harder for one of these!

I've been thinking *very* hard about one of those yellow gold versions.

That's a lot of haute horlogerie for the money!


 By: amanico : November 12th, 2020-07:21

Mine finally showed up.

 By: msherma5 : November 19th, 2020-12:48
Please overlook the ridiculously tight band. ...  

Bravo. Very elegant.

 By: amanico : November 19th, 2020-14:26

Thank you!

Well said!

Thanks, Ed.

Merci, Matto.

This VC with the guilloché salmon dial is a killer mon ami and I was VERY tempted when Antoine offered me this exact model...

 By: holdemchamp1225 : November 11th, 2020-17:28
Still tempted and sometimes I think about it as well. I might offer him a trade but as he told me, he prefers trades of cash (not watches) LOL 😂🤣


 By: amanico : November 12th, 2020-23:30

So beautiful, a gorgeous dial color.

Thanks for sharing my friend

It is a pleasure, my friend.

Soo much personality.... kind of a Sophia Loren kind of a VC Chrono

 By: mrds : November 12th, 2020-15:12
Simply gorgeous! And that Taipei one.. never seen this version. Bold, misterious, excuisite! Daniel

a lovely and romantic watch

 By: tombub : November 13th, 2020-08:23

If I can find one of these, it will be a keeper!

 By: Seeks : November 13th, 2020-08:59
The front is beautiful and the back is awesome! What a movement from Lemania and finished and tweaked by VC!
