Vacheron 6782

Sep 08, 2023,13:46 PM

This has been a long hunt, but my personal collection centerpiece has finally been found (3 years looking!). Here is a very old, but new to me, Vacheron 6782 in unpolished condition. The very first high horology sports watch, and with one of the first automatic movements to receive the Poinçon De Genève. Cheers

and to think that someone had this marvel in a drawer without wearing it for so many years...

Very cool and big congratulations! What a find!

Only a few hundred made over the course of 10 years.

Pretty fun to see vintage VC doing a turnograph take. Small details like a 20mm lug width give it a very contemporary vibe

Indeed! Very cool!

Thanks for sharing! It's always such a treat and a reward to finally find something after three years of searching!

When the hunt is over, know myself the gap comes and another hunt is on the way. What would be your next project? It is a spectacular VC you have. It is that watch how a watch should be, light colors, Swiss, quality, not over complicated, a story, and not... 

Enjoying the gap

Whatever the next hunt is, I hope it takes its time to find me

In such nice condition, a real treasure! I have a reasonably complete database of the T-bird watches. PM me the serial numbers if you’d like to know any past history of sales/ownership that may be listed.
