the pictures it looks like RG is it the case or is it YG?
From what I know this reference was made mostly with a non guilloché dial and on very rae occasions with guilloché and even rarer with the "wave" pattern of yours. If its in RG its even more rare!
You are right about the ref. number thank you very much for the tip
The watch is in yellow gold, you can`t win them all I guess
Of all the variants of Perpetual Calendar, this one would be my choice!
From what I have read, ref. 43031 has only YG and PL variants (and skeleton version in YG and PL, as well).
Also, as for dial variants, there are plain dial with gold hands, plain dial with blue hands, and guilloche dial with blue hands (like this one). Am I right?
To me, the most desirable one, is this one! :-)
would be a killer!
The guilloché dial version is stunning
Ah yes, beautiful. Wonder why only Patek gets the highest bids all the time? VC is the oldest and the quality is top notch. Hope VC will catch up with Patek.
up until now VC had a deficit in communication, few information on the brand was available: no books, few pieces at auction etc... and where the competition was blowing their horns and rolling their drums VC somewhat remained silent, maybe due to the image of understated elegance it wanted to purvey. Things have been changing since 1-2 years before the 250th anniversary auction. It started with vintage watches with prices of chronographs, Cioccolatones (simple or with triple date moon) or triple dates (with or with out moon) followed by rarer time only models. Recently prices of modern watches are also going up and most notably the 1755 Jubile models which sell at auction at or above retail price or dicontinued models such as the skeleton perpetual, the Mercator or the Chronographe Historique. Good times are ahead for VC aficionados :-)
But my Dear VC aficinafos,
beginning to talk about NUMBERS,
reminds me to much of another brand fans :-)
Love it Victor,
whatever the number :-)
