The Vacheron Constantin TV Screen Style
The similar to a 'TV Srceen' styled watches have been made from the late 1960's until the early 1980's. 'The TV Screen' is the nickname for this iconic and emblematic 1970's VC style. There have been many refs with very similar looks like ref 43005/206 or...
Re: How do you ...
Hi Jurry, a (too) difficult to answer question. I just try to help with some rather basic info, hehe.
I would combine it with a relaxed leisure jeans look
Certainly one of the VC iconic 1970's style watches. For the collector would be the movement inside of further interest. Since the style is somewhat brutal I would suggest it's more for the taste of Wei Koh than for the taste of Nick Foulkes .
'The TV Screen' vs. TV Screen style
Hi Ano Nuevo, I like your comment, and I would agree the style is very wearable and a highly enjoyable high end luxury watch. I would like to ad some info about the difference between the TV Screen style and 'The TV Screen' (pls see picture below). But in...
It's like the red wine...
Which is not ready to drink because too young, but it's high time to get this wine from that year in the wine cellar.
I sincerely admire your erudition.
hello timeset The English nickname of Ref. 6694 is Batman, but I don't know the Chinese nickname yet ( tell you the truth, most Chinese people don't like this classic design very much ,because don't like exaggerated design). You said Ref. 6694 is Zhong Ku...
The story of Zhong Kui calls for this nickname
It's a very powerful style and that expression is very well compared to Zhong Kui as well as Batman - traditional Chinese or post modern mythology. If you own one, you realize immedeately it's definitely not exaggerated design. ...
The picture above
I just put together from different sources to illustrate my inspiration.
large straight and curved lugs
I can't upload photos now. The lugs of ref. 4724 is very special. Similar with ref. 4838, ref. 4907. Can you make a nickname for them?
You have funny requests, it's not that easy
Usually the aficionados just call it The Chronomètre Royal. Maybe you call it simply The 'Georges Croisier' or The 'GC'? It was from his workshop, probably the designer also. Check the VC background info here and advertisment of his company here and a pat...
By the way...
Hi Student, did you read that story by respo about his CR - The CR GC : When the Past meets the Future in vintage collecting

guilloche silver dial,with gold lozenge indexes and arabic numerals. Yellow gold "Baton" hands. I found that the dial was identical, whether it was on sale or for the record of the auction . Do you have any more information about it? I judged the historic...
Congratulations. Your collection grows... Which of your ref's get most wrist time?

There's a problem that's been bothering me.
To participate in the auction (such as Sotheby's), the transaction price includes commission (the buyer undertakes), does the seller also pay commission (the amount is the same as the buyer)?
Each auction house has it's own rules
Do study the termes of sale carefully first. There are usually fees for the seller and for the buyer. Look at that sample: Check out the source for some more hints: Link Check out Wikipedia for types of auction, bidding strategy or collusion: Link Therefo...
