Some vintage watches shots ))

Just visited a vintage watch dealer in DE

Some fabulous VC models (and not only!). I like teardrop lugs with chemin de fer and 453 cal. But fancy lugs also great!

Why is the first watch pictured the "The rarest VC worldwide, only 3 Pieces are wellknown." ?  

Sales/promotional information like this bother me when I don't understand it.

Hey Dan smiley.  That is an odd statement, don't know why it would be limited to 3 examples 'cause I must have seen this model numerous times.  Ref 4728  appears in the 1950 catalog.  

Antiquorum sold a version with guilloche dial that was dated to 1951; no mention of such limited release and a slightly different case measurement of 36mm (would that still qualify as oversize?).  They described it with "teardrop" lugs but I prefer "chain link" as more evocative of the unique design.  Regardless, it would belong on a short list of the most intriguing V&C lugs.

Well, technically...

It says only three pieces are "wellknown" worldwide.  They other (thousands?) are living on in relative obscurity, perhaps.

Thanx for your comments!

No idea, why he described the watch as the "rarest VC"... I like this lugs (fancy or - I agree with Dean - chain-link), but still my favorite is on the third photo ))
