I took some pictures of a 1995 Les Historique ref 47101 in yellow gold next to a 4178 rose gold made in the 40's. Its interesting to see how Vacheron was able to keep classic lines at the same time giving the Les Historique a new look. The crown and pushers are a ;little bigger the sub dials being framed in gold and of course the dial is slightly different.
If you had to choose just one which one would it be. Looking forward hearing everyones opinions. They are both beautiful IMO.
