spent some time with the unique ref 6448 minute repeater and OMG it

is stunning from each and every angle.

This is the watch coming up for auction at Christie's Geneva May 14 auction. 

VC made only 3 ref 6448 minute repeaters 2 in WG and one in platinum but this one is the only one without diamond index dial. Another unique feature is the metal, according to Christie's to the best of their knowledge this is the only post war minute repeater ever made in a white gold case.

Another interesting feature is the case, VC's vintage minute repeaters were in tear drop lug cases which as this one is very different with its straight lugs and sharp angles.

Here are some rapid photos I took with my BB but watch this space for more....wink

The movement is to die for cheekyheart and the "understated" style looks sophisticated - even when it is special.
Fabulous, pure class !
