I thought so. I tried to look up a counter part for it and no luck. May I get the reason why it is fake? This way I can explain it to her so she doesn't think I was just being lazy. Lol. She could be hardheaded, because she thinks this is an expensive watch.

Hello,

Firstly this is not a Ref. 47512!

This is:

 Oh man seeing such a horror on a Monday morning is brutal! You have to tell your

This photo is from an article by Ales on this website.

Secondly, Vacheron never made a dial such as the one you have shown. The layout is a bit like the Chrono Royal 1912 except for the little date window.

Thirdly, from what I can see of the movement, it not a VC. I am willing to bet that on closer inspection the movement is of poor quality.

I would also be willing to bet that the case is not real gold.

But you can always take it to a jeweller to be sure.

But I can assure you, it's not a Vacheron, sorry.

Sorry about the double post and the typos "Alex" not "Ales" and "47152" not "47512"

I am sorry...

Haha, thank you all for the timely replies. I figured it was a fake. I looked forever for a reference for that watch and nothing was showing up. Already told her the news and of course she kept asking " how do you know or are you sure?"
