Live photos of some interesting VCs (including Saint Gervais) to be auctioned by Antiquorum on March 15

On March 15, Antiquorum will be holding an auction in Geneva with quite a few vintage and recent vintage VCs for sale including the amazing Saint gervais which was released in 2005 for the brand's 250th anniversary. Here is a small selection

 

Lot 66: a watch from the 1980s with a polychrome mother of pearl dial. I really like its quirkyness and actually may bid considering the low estimate of CHF 2,000-3,000 ($2,200-3,200)

about Lot 201 and its movement. Great value for a complicated timepiece such as that. Is it Lemania caliber with VC QP module?

Interesting that as soon as VC hits 250 anniversary, the estimates shoot up.

I'm don't have access to my computer but you have info on the QP chrono in my article about

The quarter repeating chronograph PW has a non-original case.  Many of the other PWs have hairlines, including that 24 hr CR.  Speaking of which, i'd love to know if the 24 hr numerals are part of the original dial or overprinted, which was often done by American retailers.

Agree

I do nurture the same doubts about that dial and honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the dial of lot 332 was redone also.
