I have a Vacheron 4709 with Gold Bracelet, i was wondering if its a collectors watch and how much is it worth?
Really Sorry, i did not know about the rules in this forum.....
The point is, I wonder if this watch is a collectible item or not...
I wolud like to post a picture a could do it...
The case design of Ref. 4709 is quite unique and special (a serrated bezel). I'm sure there are watch fans out there that would be attracted to that style, but like any form of art: some would love it, some might not. Please post of picture of it when you can.
Archie is right, in that we do not discuss monetary values on this forum because true value (like beauty) is really in the eyes of the beholder. If you really want to get an understanding of it's monetary value, you might want to contact one of the major auction houses.
Best Regards, Dab
You are very Kind for all of this information.
I would like to know more about this watch, it was a gift from my Dad and it has more than 40 years, maybe more... Where can i find this information?
You can do a search on the major auction houses, such as Antiquorum, Christie's, Sotheby's, etc.
If you did a search for ref 4709 on our forum, you would have found this link:
It appears your model watch was made in the early 1950s.

Nicknamed "Ship's Wheel", this case design was also used by LeCoultre. Depending on year of production (early to late 1950s), yours with sub-seconds should have the caliber 458 movement with 17 jewels or the later 466/3B movement with unique fork-shaped regulator. There was also a version with center-seconds. Typical for the period, it has a smallish 34mm case but the exaggerated lugs give a larger presence IMHO.
I'm wondering how you learned it was a Ref. 4709? Do you have pictures of the movement and inside case-back markings to share?
I attach a picture of my watch
