Changing the dial to ref. 6506

Yesterday, June 30, 2014 I brought my V & C ref. 6506 in white gold from the dealer and conncessionario official Vacheron Constantin Puglia "The Sccrigno" of Ostuni (BR), for a cost estimate for changing the dial to 6506: do you know the time to receive the response from Richemont? In addition to replacing the dial ruined there are other solutions, such as a reprint, repainting, original or something else? Thank you

Go for original

Hi Giovanni, I guess that's your name :-)

I would wait for a nice original (and coeval) dial to appear in the wild, somewhere, somehow.

The dial your watch is currently equipped with, looks already re-done.

I would go for a supplied dial just as an "extrema ratio" (e.g. rare/impossible to find dial) but this is not the case - imo.

Yes, Giovanni is my name! :-) It is already the dial redone, and you're right I should wait before you buy one and try to supply a dial original, but where? Thanks for the reply

Take to find an original dial . However in your case the dial seems to be (poorly) reprinted so you can have the watch sent to VC and have a reprint of the original dial, but this is only possible if the dial maker has kept the prints of the original (which is often the case)

Thanks Alex, I went to the dealer VC, but he told me that you can not have a reprint of the original and certified by VC: perhaps he's never happened to another similar case and has responded in this way. I think the best thing is to find a dial nos, but it's hard! The best solution and possibly cheaper and less wasteful of money, is the reissue with original prints of the producer ...
You can have a reprinted dial by VC but you need to have the watch sent to

Geneva and subject to the dial print to be available

Thanks again Alex! The watch I left the dealer to Ostuni for sending in Geneva for the cost estimate from VC .
