Vacheron Constantin Ref 6563, again!

Dec 08, 2018,15:47 PM

Funny... A bit more than one year ago, I saw a superb Vacheron 6563 in steel with a blue dial in a watch shop. A few weeks after, it has been sold. While I was considering buying it for myself. 

Today, I saw it again, and I was starting to think about making an offer, for the next year, as my watch budget is as flat as the heart of a Zombie... 

I took several watches in picture, and when I came to speak to the watch dealer, the watch was... sold. wink  

This is a marvel of a watch. The case is flat, nit super flat, as it is circa 8 mm high, and quite big despite its 35, 15 diameter. We had a bet with the dealer, it told me 35, I was betting around 37... 

Manual winding movement, solid case back, cool hands, superb dial and top case. Yes, this is my cup of tea. Next time I will speak faster.  wink

This is exactly my cup of tea, as well.

Thanks for sharing the photos. I do not concern myself with the specific number of mm in case size anymore. It is merely a question of how it looks and feels on the wrist. It is only a number, after all. All best, respo

That is the true essence of Vacheron..

I would be cautious, if coming across the same watch at several dealers. And if its even expensive for you to buy this watch, I would be even more cautious. Spontaneous purchases bear a high risk to be not objective and therefore to spend to much or even ... 

Since it fits the discussion, did you have a photo of your watch movement?

Maybe that JLC watch would be a smart choise regarding your funds. ...  

God, that is not something I see in common..

perhaps the reason why is because it looks so good and it gets sold fairly quickly. Would love to get those any day - only if there were in stock!
