Caliber 2475 Family Pix

So, Alex's post with some awesome movement photos got me thinking about the Caliber 2475 and its inclusion in the new Quai de l'Ile Day/Date model.  While I do not have this watch, I am fortunate to have some other members of the family.  I decided to take a couple of quick family photos. Caliber 2475 Family Pix

These pictures are quite wretched when compared to the images that Alex has posted and I have discovered that I am far better at buying cameras as opposed to actually using them.  Anyway, these are taken with a simple point and shoot.  Typically, I avoid flash photography with watches but i felt that the one below gives you a different perspective on the watches.

Here is my Caliber 2475 family including the platinum, yellow gold and white gold Jubilee 1755 brothers.  Sometime later, I hope to add their Quai de l'Ile cousin... Caliber 2475 Family Pix

Cheers,
Duncan

I think this ultra limited edition of Jubilee 1755 was already shown here on HL. Could you please remind what it sands for? Thanks!
Thanks Radek for your kind words.

The yellow gold piece was customized by VC by painting the Singapore flag on the rotor instead of the usual engraving.  The watch was donated by VC for a charity auction last year. Following is a link about the watch and auction: A unique Vacheron Constantin Jubilee 1755 auction for the benefit of Charity (Kidz Horizon Appeal) Cheers, Duncan
Chapeau bas, Duncan!!! Not only did you get the piece unique but...

you did it for a good cause Anyway, you know you're one crazy VC/watch collector
Thanks Radek! I've been called far worse than "crazy" before. :-) (nt)

I think we are all a little crazed up about VC in a good way ;-))) nt

Amazing Duncan, you're nuts :-) Big question why not a

RG model?  Love mine The Singapore version is a piece unique right? I love your collection Duncan, you can adopt me any time
Many thanks Alex. Yes, the yellow gold piece is...
10/15/2008 - 01:04
a piece unique and I have included a link in my reply to Radek's post that provides more details about the watch and how it ended up in my hands. Actually, I was perfectly content with my original white gold piece until it was suggested that I take a look at the platinum one.  Well, after seeing the platinum model, it quickly joined its gold brother.  I am not really a fan of yellow or rose gold but then the yellow gold piece unique came out and to support a good cause, i went for it.  Actually, come to think of it, I have never seen the rose gold version.  I wonder if I did.... Cheers, Duncan P.S. Most of my adult adoptees tend to be a different gender my friend but I have made a few exceptions....
Very nice family, I also would like to know more

about the "singapore" version. I own a jubilee and have to say since I bought it (approx a year ago) its been my favorite watch. They had the 1 of black dial versions made for the AQ auctions and the rose gold version was one that I still would like to get my hands on....some day.
Thanks John. I must say that if the opportunity presented itself...
10/15/2008 - 01:09
then I would definitely like to have the black dial version join its brethren in my family. Please see the link that I included in my reply to Radek's post for more information on the Singapore piece unique. Cheers, Duncan
I remember seeing this very watch in the flesh
