Is this VC fake?

Hi Gentlemen,

One of my friend are bidding for a Vacheron Constatin watch.

The seller says to the watch had his grandfather. He worn the watch in the 80s.

Could you please advise?

Thanks a lot! 




yes and a horrible one too

Indeed, It is.

Take a look at a real tourbillon and note the beautiful finishing (like the Geneva waves and the golden gears, etc.) of the real thing.  A real Vacheron of any vintage will be decorated this way, not just plain metal discs. 


It looks like they are trying to copy the 2755...

and doing it badly.

Also, Alex, is there (or has there ever been) a tourbillon that is an automatic? That rotor could have also been a dead giveaway, unless I am mistaken.

VC never made an automatic tourbillon but I think that
