I am not sure if this has been done previously or not, but I have been wondering recently if there is a consensus amongst Loungers as to which are the best models ever produced by Vacheron, as well as the ones that VC might have been better off not releasing. I think it might be fun to see what are the top 3 watches and the worst for each of us, irrespective of price. Allocating 3 points to 1st choice, 2 points to 2nd and 1 point to 3rd, we should be able to see if there is a Loungers favourite or not.
Personally, I could have said that my all-time top 3 VC would be the 47212, 47112 (YG) and 47112 (PT), but that would be a little bit boring. So I’ll say my choices are:
Top 3 VCs:
1) Malte Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Excellence Platine (47212)
2) Malte Tourbillon Regulateur Excellence Platine (don’t know what the ref number is)
3) St Gervais Perpetual Calendar Tourbillon (don’t know what the ref number is)
Worst VC: Metiers d’Arts Four Seasons 2005 (I do like the way the time is displayed, but the central sculpture and the enamel do nothing for me…)
