Service of VC 42042


I am  relative new here. 

I just want to ask some question regarding my Overseas 37mm 42042.

The watch is sunning -10s/d now. Last service was 2011/12 at AD. But the AD was not official VC AD before 2012/13.

I see there is a dust indide the glass and the finishing of the watch was not top.

What is the price of a VC service at a VC service center outside my country?



price will depend on what needs to be done (sorry for not being more specific) but

the folks at VC will first need to look at it. Why not give it to your AD who will send to the VC service center in Germany who wil then provide a quote.


If it is just dust I'm sure you can ask your AD who did the original servicing to remove. However, what do you mean by the finishing not being top?

I have the same ref. OS chronometer.  A full service should bring the watch back to good running performance.

By the way, do you know whether there is strap option for 42042?

Only one option and one color that I know of

The Gen. 1 OS Chronometer came in a rare variation with a yellow gold case and brown leather strap.

One of our Loungers recently went through the effort of asking about it and found out that VC still had some New, Old Stock, brown leather straps available.  He bought one, along with a steel deploynat, and attached it to his Gen. 1 OS Chronometer.

It looks really nice, and I've looked into doing it myself.  The blue dial and brown strap look good to me. 

If you do not like brown leather, then there are no other, original VC, options that I know of.
