Hello, I am a new guy on this forum and interested in buying my first vintage watch and I am especially interested in vintage VC watches. On the internet I found sites with information how to date vintage VC watches by their serial numbers which are stamped on the innerside of the back. Watches from around 1950 start with serial numbers of 500000 and from 1955 with numbers of 525000 and higher. Furthermore, from around 1950 should also the reference number next to the serial number been stamped on the back. There are however several vintage VC watches from 1950-1954 with serial numbers of around 365000 and also was there not a reference number on the back. One of these watches has a movement number of 527649. So, can you help me clarify this matter and give me some guidance in dating a VC watch in the right way and if the watch is completely original.
