What !?
12/19/2008 - 13:32
I thought it was this one Doc
On your way to pick up a new acquisition, Doc? Here's mine...
12/19/2008 - 13:35
for today. From a different angle this time
Really nice pic of a beautiful watch :-) (nt)

I've got a gorgeous invisible VC on my wrist today
Ohhh, that's beautiful !!! (nt)
12/19/2008 - 15:29
Thanks Doc for your appreciation
12/19/2008 - 15:51
I must say that this new model is really amazing, very classy, and really a feather weight. And the new invisible movement with Geneva seal is truly amazing, the best ever. OK... I swear I did not drink or smoke anything illegal
I love especially the invisible Geneva Seal :-)
12/19/2008 - 16:05
It's not necessary on a VC movement and above all never on the dial! This is an old movement from Vacheron&Constatin without Geneva Seal. and as everone can see it's rather unnecessary Cheers Doc
My newest vintage acquisition (not V&C)...
12/19/2008 - 16:22
While several steps below the V&C's which we are used to seeing on this forum, I find this mid-level vintage Girard–Perregaux to be very elegantly designed. I particularly like the case and lugs, and the dial itself is actually not far removed from some of the classic '60's V&C designs. Hmmm...that leads me to wonder which company influenced which?  Regards, Tony C.
Girard-Perregaux, my second love...
12/19/2008 - 17:18

One of them, and my daughter's It's very very small


I was thinking of a Girard-Perregaux
12/19/2008 - 17:40
as my first vintage watch, V&Cs still being out of my league. Glad to see I am not the only one who enjoys those watches . What would be your advice (the nice calibres, dials) bearing in ming I would probably go for a man's watch rather than a lady's ?
Many vintage men's watches are
12/19/2008 - 21:58
today small, and could well be used as a lady's watch. This is a very cheap old GP from the 50's I bought many years ago. This GP Gyromatic was one of the first selfwinding watches, that worked and still does Only 31 mm without crown,  but seems bigger with the long lugs, 41 mm. It was first with ball bearing system. Cheers Doc
Yes, including the one in my original post...
12/19/2008 - 22:18
definitely a man's watch, at around 35mm (excluding crown). That was, as Doc says, roughly typical of the period, including plenty of V&C models!
Re: I was thinking of a Girard-Perregaux
12/19/2008 - 22:27
Hi Tacha, I'm a big fan of GP too and have a few of them. I have a vintage one and I'll try and take a photo for you. I think its 34-35mm. It will give you some idea of what's available. Not too expensive either. Regards, Joseph
No wristshot but....
12/19/2008 - 16:29 is on my wrist ! Have a nice weekend, Mark
Please give us a wristshot! (nt)
12/19/2008 - 17:46
Here you go.....
12/21/2008 - 14:11
a quick one I am afraid..... Kind regards, Mark
Just perfect :-) Thanks ! (nt)
12/21/2008 - 17:43
Looks good from every angle! nt
12/19/2008 - 17:53
What else?
12/19/2008 - 17:52
Still enjoying the new family member...very comfortable to wear on a daily basis!  Say Doc, that two-tone dial really shows nicely on your "driving" watch
Yes, what else could you wear? :-) (nt)
12/19/2008 - 22:00
Re: Friday ! What's on your wrist ?
12/19/2008 - 19:16
Well, here's mine for today. Not a VC. This one is from Denmark. Didn't they once control Sweden? Urban Jurgensen, Reference 2, Perpetual Calendar with moonphase. This is one of the rare ones with blued hands.
Absolute magnificent!
12/19/2008 - 22:02
I love that watch. Classic in all details. Congrats Doc
Yes, truly beautiful!
12/19/2008 - 23:15

 Classic style like Breguet but distinctive on it's own merits....stunning

JB, that is truly beautiful....
12/19/2008 - 23:40
I love the moonphase with the small checks...lot's of detail.  Is that YG or RG? Best regards, Tom
Doc, Dean and Tom...
12/20/2008 - 00:23
Greetings, Thanks for the kind words. Its YG. I don't think it was ever made in RG but I'm not sure. It was made in platinum for sure. They were all numbered but I don't know the criteria. The blued hands though are quite rare. Only a handful were made that way. Here again I'm not sure how it was done but the failure rate in the process was 90%. So they stopped doing it and went to gold hands. All their watches are (to uses some lyrics by Jerome Kern) "Lovely to look at, Delightful to hold and Heaven to wear" Haha I'll bet you thought I was going to say "kiss". Seriously, they do have some spectacular pieces. Regards, Joseph
Blue hands,
12/20/2008 - 10:02
yes, I do like them very much, as these, nearly violet  Doc
AFAIK only one piece was made in RG as a prototype (nt)
12/20/2008 - 16:21
stunning is what first come to mind. Love it! (nt)
12/20/2008 - 16:20
This one, but not a wristshot.
12/19/2008 - 20:52
The watch is lying like me on the bed after an exhausting day , or I must say week! And I even forgot to put the right date, day and month!!! I took it this afternoon from the vault. Cheers Doc
Wow, I didn't know you were hiding
12/19/2008 - 22:05
this one for me. It sure is a genuine classic, even if it hurts,  I must admitt I like it very much Cheers and see you soon Doc
This one
12/19/2008 - 21:22

12/20/2008 - 00:26
I'd love to get a better look at the dial.  Do you have any closer photos?  What a handsome watch. Thanks for sharing it with us. Best regards, Dino
Of course! Here's for you Dino!
12/20/2008 - 09:50

12/20/2008 - 10:40

12/20/2008 - 16:25
Thanks Doc...
12/21/2008 - 03:53

The case is very handsome, but the two tone dial is very very cool!  From the photo in the car it looked two tone but the close up photos show that the watch is even nice than I anticipated.  Great watch! Wear it in good health and thanks for the additional photos. Best regards, Dino P.S.  The "Father" 1972 is a very a great looking watch, but we both knew that already.

This one today...
12/20/2008 - 00:39

I love the dial and the way the hour markers follow the shape of the case even though the case is asymetric.  Also the curved case is very comfortable. Best regards, Dino

12/20/2008 - 14:57

this is the father

cheers Doc

It is not a Vacheron but I will post it anyway
12/20/2008 - 12:22
Kudos to AlexG for the great work he is doing on this forum.
Long time since I saw a Lange, very nice! (nt)
12/20/2008 - 14:59
We had a beautiful snow fall yesterday so I thought
12/20/2008 - 13:30
this would be a good day to play with the camera and take some pictures. I took out my favorite watch which I havn't worn for quite a while and started playing around. When I was finished I began to appreciate Vacheron all over again and immediately put it on my wrist to enjoy. Happy Holidays. John
Amazing pics, almost as advertising!
12/20/2008 - 15:00
Enjoy it and the holidays too Cheers Doc
dial looks as if it was made of snowflakes :-) (nt)

You know what John that watch never appealed to me.......... Until now. I hate you! Mike S.

Not much to sat about that one John.......
12/21/2008 - 17:32
Just Gorgeous! Best regards, Tom
