How can I tell if I have a real Vacheron Constantin watch.

My cousin gave me a Vacheron Constantin watch a few years ago.  I've only worn it on a few times.  I tried looking in up on the internet, but there's so many styles.  Also, I don't know if it's an actual Vacheron Constantin or a fake.  It has a leather black band with Vacheron Constantin stamped on the underside of the band with the swiss cross.  The clasp is silver colered with a swiss cross on it.  The watch itself has a glass front and back (so you can see the works). The outside is silver colored and it is a manual wind watch with a swiss  cross on the stem.  The face of the watch looks like a cog or gear.  It's silver colered and it has roman numerals.  You flip it over and the works looks like they're gold plated. You can see the back side of the face of the watch and where the roman numerals are placed they're swiss crosses.  It's a jeweled watch because you can see the rubies in it.  Can you tell me what kind of watch this is thanks, Roger

The only writing on the watch is Vacheron Constantin (with the cross) is stamped on the underside of the wristband. and on the face of the watch (off center and towards the upper right) are the words: Vacheron Constantin and Swiss Made in a circular pattern around the Maltese Cross.  I couldn't find any serial numbers or any other writing of any kind on the watch itself.

Hello group,

I have had Vacheron Constantin watch since 2003 when I got it from a wealthy businessman who owns a large factory in Ukraine. The watch has worked perfect all these years.   Just last week for the first time a man told me that it is a fake watch.  I have never seen another VC like mine, but I never suspected that it was not real all these years. Anyone who can take a look at the images and let me know what you think, thank you.

It's a fake VC, sorry :-(

Wow, this is really disapointing (an understatement). Thank you for reply.   How is it that you can tell?  What about the watch is not right that I have missed all these years?  I'll be embarrased to wear it anymore now.   Thanks.

You can do an Internet search on this watch and can see the differences for yourself.  Pay attention to the dial and the movement.

I see how different mine is from that model, mine missing second function and hatched back door cover on back.  Wow, I think of all the days I wore the watch so proudly since I got it and I looked very stupid many times if people knew watches. very sad.   there is no small chance mine is a different model or that mine is a bespoke model that VC makes according to their website?     is the watch worth anything or should just be thrown in the garbage?    thank you all very much.
