descriptive comments on a dial! I mean the guy who buys these watches already knows that it is a perpatual calendar and if he sees the rotor he can guess that it is automatic. And if he doesn't know all this then his dealer can explain it once and for all and he won't need reminding.

It could be possible that things are changing and after the introduction of the Patrimony Automatique in 2006 the dials were changed in 2007 and "Automatic" was taken off the dial.

BTW if you're a fan of the Malte Perpetual Calendar Retrograde, here's my favorite variation. Unfortunately made in only 5 pieces for the Moscow boutique.

Does it help if all the Lounger post in this direction?

Not important. Only the logo and the Vacheron Constantin are enough! It makes the watch cheap!
