This is the second SS 7397 pictured on the Hour Lounge.
This watch has an unpolished case with some wear but still has the original sunburst pattern emulating the very clean dial.
The serial number is on the outside unlike the other 7397 displayed. 449427 is only 31 off the other SS 7397. I suspect these were made in one run in a limited number (which Vacheron from this era is not limited production ). This watch has the serial number on the outside. I am not sure why VC moves them in/out.
The K1072 runs very well, keeps excellent time and has a nice buzz with the rotor winding.
The plain crown seems correct as demonstrated on this watches sister.
The watch wells very well and is comfortable. It seems larger than its 34 mm width might suggest. The case is balanced with the tonneau shaped case hiding the "bubble back". The cyclops acrylic crystal is very clean.
Thanks for looking.
