like it just came out of the factory yesterday....fantastic watch thanks for the pictures.
To the finishing make all the difference. I also noticed that V&C has 19 jewel vs 17 on the JLC, do you know where they were added? I would love to see V&C begin to use screwed down gold chatons to hold the jewels using blued screws on their high end watches. Lange does this and I think it gives it a touch of old world elegance (just like Doc...LOL) and quality. Just a small way to differentiate themselves from the crowd.

Thanks for the pics. Nice vintage piece, and the movement does look mint.
