My very first post...

Mar 09, 2019,16:04 PM

I got this watch from a very good friend recently. It’s a rather elusive VC Ref 6803 from 1964. Steel case, case size is about 37mm. Inside it is the Cal 454 with indirect central seconds. 

This seems to be a rather rare reference. I could only find three other examples on the internet, and all of them come with baton hands instead of the dauphine hands shown here. 

Hope you like it.

I assure you that the watch is better than the owner.

A watch is just a piece of metal without the owner!

It is a rather rare reference, which I mistook for a at first glance. But the case is in fact quite different. ...  

Hell of a start, welcome!!! [nt]

Thank you for the kind words.

It’s indeed a very pure watch. I think of it as an equivalent of Patek 570, except that it’s bigger and less known. I have a central second 570 in white gold as well.

That’s a great idea.

 By: leftpain2 : March 10th, 2019-08:07
The 570 is not with me at the moment. I’ll be able to take a side by side photo when I go back to my home country this summer. Meanwhile see below for some pictures of the 570. ...

Thank you.

The dauphine hands really do give the watch a different atmosphere.
