Help to identify watch please

Hello everybody

Need your help to identify my Vacheron Constantin watch. It was originally bought by my father-in-law and I got it as a present.
I tried to google it, but was not able to find it. Any idea please?

ref 49003 is probably the closest to my watch, but not quite the same I did a bit of search and has come up with the following ref 49003:Link 1Link 2Link 3 Any idea what sub-model do I have please? Many thanks
the 1st watch in your link is a ref 47001 not a 49003 the only

difference between the other 2 and yours is the dial but the ref number does not change, unless the case and pushers are dufferent but then can you post another scan showing the whole case?
I have uploaded more photos

Originally the watch came with black strap, which was worn one so, I decided to change it for a brown one. The VC genuine strap would take 1-2 months to get delivered so I decided to go for what the watch shop offered me instead.

You're an exception to a Shady Joe's principal rule...

You actually got a real VC as a present

Sorry, whats a Shady Joe's rule? Yeah, this is a real VC. What's the point presenting a fake one?
You've no idea how many fakes are shown and asked for an opinion here

And because it's somewhat annoying Shady Joe (a fellow Lounger) came up with a guide to spotting a fake VC: click here to see the post Anyway, you are an exception to his no. 1 rule Congrats on your watch! Cheers Radek

Ha-ha. Now I know what you mean. No, the watch is 100% genuine, its been recently serviced by VC (took 1 month and a serious damage to my credit card). Unfortunately, I complely forgot to ask about the model ref. Thanks for Joe's Shady rules though - funny.
