Vacheron 6022 Devils lugs Rose gold

What is the estimated value on a reference 6022 rose gold and devil style lugs with engine turned bezel?  It's unrestored, in excellent condition and runs well.  Im curious to know.  I take it these are very rare?  does anyone know the story behind this watch also and how many were made? Thanks.

Pete,

 

We do not discuss prices in this forum, but you can check the online information at the auction houses (Antiquorum is easiest) and search for Vacheron 6022 to see what has been sold in the past.  

 

I can tell you that it is small by today's standards at 33mm and was made in the 50s and 60s.  Quantities were probably small, but I doubt anyone can tell you precidely how many were made.

 

If you have photos, please post them.

A most intriguing watch. Lugs case and especially the indices are remarkable.

I expect it's not a very common watch.

Congrats, very different and great shape.

JB, thank you.  Yes it's pretty mezmerizing To see in person.  its very well preserved, and the markers have a sort of bow and arrow style to them.  I would like to find out from Vacheron to get a sense of what it's worth, when I get the chance, and also maybe some insight as to what inspired them to produce this design.  I could see someone of nobility or royalty wearing this back in those days.

I suspect you know a little something to have the nickname Devil, or Diavolo as Antiquorum used.  An example sold as lot 230 in their Quarter Millennium sale in 2005, which should provide you with the high mark for value.  Today's value is another matter.  Notice the hands are polished while indexes show tarnish, also the locator holes beneath the indexes are visible...perhaps some investigation before you purchase would be prudent. to confirm the "unrestored" status.

Where would be a good place to take it to, to confirm if the indexes are original or restored, etc?, can anyone else confirm from the picture?  and also do I factor in inflation for the 2005 year to come up with that value?  Seems to be pretty high.

thanks.

The watch is gorgeous! As for

Dial I see that you live in NY and believe there are a few reputable vintage dealers there so maybe you can take your watch to one of them for inspection. As for price have a look at the auction results for this ref on the Antiquorum, Christie's and Sotheby's web sites

thanks.

you should look at recent auction results not the 2005 as for a NY

Would you think recent results will be higher valued to 2005 based on appreciation and inflation, or no?  I caint seem to find any recent valuations on it.  

I would say prices would be lower as a thematic sale is always something
