That is really a beauty, Rei.  Thanks for sharing! I love the teardrop lugs and the black face.  The dial is oh so clean too! It is a little small by today's standards but apart from that, I think it is perfect. BTW, would you choose this one over your boutique contemporaine (if you could only have one)? Cheers! Kazumi
I'd wear this anytime though it's only less than 36 mm.

If this were RG, it'd be the ultimate combo. The three of us (Alex, you & me) may feel this watch is the closest to our Patrimony boutique piece (btw, is there anyone else who bought this watch outside the 3 of us?)... I might choose this one Kazumi, since it has a long history and it's a thing from the past (you know how special things can be coming from the past), but since I don't have it I am happy with the Patrimony although I have special feeling towards acrylic crystal, especially domed ps. The watch is on hold the day it was put up. Talk about fast! Btw, it's from Japanese website.  
More pics of the watch and another VC from 1930's. Just beautiful!

Very Bold!

Another outstanding example of vintage Vacheron .  The black dial and minute track give a military look, which is immediately contradicted by the softness of the gold and teardrop lugs.  Really the size was big for the times too!  A very pretty and bold piece.  I'm guessing a 454 family movement?
You're right! According to the seller: Cal P454/5C (nt)
