a twist
Yes, it's a Vacheron & Constantin!

Beautiful and with the authentic name, Vacheron&Constantin But why Automatic? I don't appreciate when 'designers' put unneccesary text on the dial. It's like Toyota 2.0 GTI fuel injection Automatic..... But the watch is of course nice! cheers Doc
I llike to see "Automatic" written on the dials of automatic watches.

I think it balances the dial, and it should not be forgotten that at the time the watch was made, the fact that it was automatic was a pretty big deal. In any case, marking automatic watches on their dials is Vacheron's tradition. (It is currently breaking with its new automatic watches. For my part, I would rather have it stick to tradition than emulate Patek.)
Steel or WG?

Beautiful indeed!  Looks like a Ref. 6562 in steel?  Although I'm sure I've seen that case design in YG also and the lustre sure looks like WG....   The hands are especially interesting as typically baton hands would accompany that style of indexes, while dauphine hands are most often featured with pointed indexes.  I'm not suggesting they aren't original...just another example of how V&C style "rules" must not be taken too seriously . courtesy of Antiquorum
It's steel. Clean & crisp looking...yummy! (nt)

More pics please!

Need more!!  Does it have a screw back?  Is the crown marked with Maltese Cross?  Can you tell I like it? Re "automatic" on dial: it probably wouldn't be necessary with a display back but without one, I'd prefer the label to ID the contents.

I think it's sold on the same day it was put up for not surprised
Outstanding! Thanks. (nt)

Vey nice indeed

Very "crisp", as a few have already pointed out. I would also prefer the watch without the "Automatic"... Thanks for sharing!
You're welcome Sir... (nt)
