Vacheron Constantin Les Historiques American 1921 Platinum. One of the modern Vacheron I desire the most

Different, original, class. That's the Vacheron I like. The platinum case and the grained dial are two big plus. The con? I would have preferred it one or two millimeters smaller, but not a dream breaker.

I love it , it’s so gorgeous and such a VC signature watch. I’m often asked three questions: 1) is that crown uncomfortable considering it’s position? No you barely notice it 2) isn’t the platinum very heavy? Yes it’s heavier than the similar size gold ve...

Wasn't this originally...

designed this way so the 12 and 6 axis would look vertical when worn on the inside of the wrist while gripping a steering wheel?


 By: cpbmd : January 4th, 2020-19:26
It was designed for drivers

This watch could become my first VC.
