My first entry in the Vintage World and with

VC of course ;-))

I just received yesterday my new favorite VC watch:

YG, 33mm, Calibre K1002 and born in 1955.

Here is a set of photos. I love the 2 different reflections of the light into the dial surface. Lugs are very nicely designed and integrated in the case. Cherry on the cake:

the darker stich match perfectly with the black maltese cross of the YG buckle.

I am very Happy and hope you also enjoy to discover this model.

Its reference is 6089 ;-))

That is a very nice and interesting watch.  Not only is the dial attractive, but I also really like the ususal lugs that it has.  Nice pickup.

Thanks Eric

Beautiful and intriguing case, incredible dial in amazing condition, lovely profile and the markers for 12 is just so nice. Congratulations on your find. I guess that you know it already but the buckle is not from the 50s to the best of my knowledge. Vacheron Constantin started to use them in the 70s. Thanks for taking all the photos and for sharing. May the watch give you a lot of good times. All the best, Kent. 
Thanks Kent

you are perfectly right concerning the buckle.

The available buckle was not the original one (with should be with no name as providing by VC suppliers in the 50's). So, I have chosen this one which I find more in the VC vintage spirit and I love itsmiley

Best regards,


Wow; That is a stunning configuration

The dial and the case a reamazing, I have never seen it before. The maltese lug shape of the lugs is different from what we see on some CR or ultra thin and it is gorgeous. 

The buckle is cherry on the cake.

I love it, great acquisition Liger !

wear it in good health



Dear François, you inspired me
10/09/2014 - 08:16

with your incredible vintage model on bracelet, seeing very often your nice photos on different sites smiley. You love it for sure.

At first sight, I fall in love with this 6089. Seems rare, very difficult to read info on this model. Mine was produced in 1955 (year of 200th VC anniversary).

Looking for more info from Alex and you Experts, if you could have some.

Thank you for your compliments.

to complete your incredible collection, with various Haute Horlogerie brands wink

VC is according to me , the BEST artistic Haute Horlogerie Manufacture. Within its long long historical collection, you will fall in love one day for a marvellous model.

This 6089 appeared this summer and I fall in love with. Just waiting for its controls by a well known watchmaker/resaler here in France, before to receive it and post these photos.
