Stumbled across a classic

Last night I had to pick up my wife from Malaga Airport. I left home early so I had time to look at a couple of watch shops in the center of Malaga. In Plaza de la Constitución number 7 is a very modest looking watch shop. Don't be fooled though. The shop has five very experienced watchmakers who repair and renovate of all kinds of watches. They also buy and sell used watches. Last night they had a Vacheron Constantin classic. I had to have it opened to make sure it was a ref. 6378 Q with cal 1071. It didn't take us long to reach a very resonable price so I wasn't late for the airport. JK

It looks to be in perfect condition yes. Maybe I can see it in real life one day since we are living in the same country. Are you living in Copenhagen? If you don't want to tell it here then please send an email to me and maybe we can meet? Må det give dig mange gode stunder smiley Mange hilsner Kent

I wonder if it went to the VC spa?  The case polishing and brushing looks very fine and  I see the dial is missing its "&".  Please post movement pics when you can yes.

I am sure you are right about the dial being redone. I don't think the watch would have had a complete VC spa. There would have been some paperwork to prove that. I am sorry but I can't open the watch right now. But I can show you two more pictures. JK

I don't want to be rude but I think even being late for the wife would be excusable for that piece!
