Pics! We want pics!

It's been several questions about watches not followed by pictures.

I wish that every question, about a specific watch, should also be followed by a pic!

We can't get to many of them, and without them it's nearly impossible to answer some questions.

Even pics that actually doesn't seem to be about the things that are actual discussed,

are often essential,

they always makes a thread more attractive!

Sooner or later they will be a treasure, when someone looking for a detail suddenly stumbles on it!

So please, let all your questions be followed by a pic ,

that's nearly a prerequisite for an accurate answer. 

This is a Vacheron&Constantin from 1937, a year that the whole year-production were 439 watches !

It's also before they had started putting numbers of the different types of movements,

they only was named after their measure in lignes.

One ligne = 2,255 mm.

This movement is 11 lignes in diam, or as it is written 11''' .

Brushed roségold and applied yellow gold indexes.

I don't like Automatic and power reserve on such a magificent dial :-)

And what a case, it's perfect!

I wished they had done one "simpler" version for me :-)

I like it

I saw it in London (platinum edition I think, or white gold). I thought it looked fantastic. Geneva seal on the front could have gone, but that wouldn't deter me from buying it (the price did :-)).

I love this watch, I think it is great.

Thanks Steve!

Yes it's a very special art deco design.

Imagine brushed rosé gold 1937,

and it's heavy!

One has to think that at this moment Vacheron&Constantin was at the edge,

1938 started the cooperation with JLC, which saved them.

But still with only 439 watches made, they still only made the best of the best!

1965 the company's chairman and owner Georges Ketterer cut the ties with JLC. 

Original buckle in RG with V&C inside.

And on the wrist.

Here you can see the brushed case and the contrasting yellow gold indexes,

I wear it now, today at work :-)
