A very crisp chime...characteristic of the WG?
Characteristic of VC :-) I've heard platinum VC repeaters which

sound as good as the gold models whereas platinum is known to absorb sound. The 5-6 vintage Vc repeaters I've heard all sound amazingly lound and crisp

I had the great pleasure of sitting with Aurel Bacs and Hugues de Pins at a dinner hosted by Vacheron last week during Madison Avenue Watch Week in NYC.  The 6448 was a topic of considerable discussion, and it will be interesting to see how it does at auction.   It is also interesting to note that the numebr of vintage (and modern) VCs in the upcoming Geneva, Hong Kong and New York auctions is greter than it has been for several years.  A very positive development in my opinion.
Very interesting.
