Isn't it fun to wear such a beatuiful example today of a gold watch from bygone days. When wearing this one, as well as others like it from other brands, you feel like you have something special on your wrist.

That one was produced in 1954.....

So it's 69 years old.

Wonderful VC that exudes class.

I love the vintage VCs with gold cases and champagne dials, like yours here.

Thanks Nicolas!

Vintage VCs always exude a certain amount of class and elegance...

...that is hard to define. I always think of them as the ultimate 'gentleman's' watch...

I can see why! 👌

I was originally looking for a Patek 2526 and came across this piece during my hunt which end up being a quarter of the price. I felt pretty lucky as I like this piece as much as I would have liked the 2526.

I think you did well!

I am looking for vintage automatic V&C which sub-second.I guess your watch used caliber 498. And the caliber 1070, only appeared in the forum discussions and did not see any physical objects.

Yes that is caliber 498.....

Which was VC's first automatic movement that had a rotor. The 1070 movement is very rare to find as well.

The watch is superb and you made an amazing choice with that strap. Can you post more pictures of the strap and the references? Where did you buy it? Thank you!


 By: TonyR : May 19th, 2023-23:13
The strap was purchased directly from VC. I don't remember the reference off hand, I'd have to look it up.

 By: Gewachst : May 20th, 2023-00:07
The reference on interior of the strap would be great. Thank you very much in advance and greetings from Switzerland.

I'll look next time I pull it out of the safe. I ordered it directly from the VC boutique in NYC.
