Vacheron Constantin Mercator in platinum

May 11, 2022,08:33 AM
 

A uniquely designed watch, released in the mid 90s. I think it was said that the engineering on the movement was not easy at that time.

Lovely the retrograde hour and minute jumping hands. I hope to match this with the European/Asian map version one day.

Many thanks for looking !

This is a grail watch for me

and a watch I would be willing to sacrifice something else that I own today that I like a lot in order to lay my hands on this beauty. Does anybody know how many of this watch was made? Thanks Pelle

That is a good question. It would be good too know

I do not see this platinum case version (or its twin with the European/Asian map) with box and papers coming up a lot at auctions. Thank you and best wishes

much agreed, dear Chico

I really like the lugs on this one. Definitely a unique design

yes indeed

one of those details that take a while to catch your eye but the lugs are very powerful!

good point, dear takman

 
 By: Seeks : May 11th, 2022-15:22
The lugs was not the first thing that caught my eye but as it was given more wrist time, such details are more appreciated! many thanks

Simply amazing,
