VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1

Dear Loungers,

In celebration of the opening of Vacheron Constantin's 1st Norh American boutique in New York (on Madison and 64th) due July 26 I'm organising an exciting contest here on The Lounge.

Vacheron Constantin will be introducing 3 exclusive limited edition models for the NY boutique. I will post teaser photos of these watches this week:

Here are the rules:

Guess the exact name of each model (ex: Patrimony Traditionnelle Chronograph). hint: these 3 watches are existing models but with differences from the regular production versions . The names of the winners having correctly guessed the 3 models will be randomly drawn. Contest is open until Saturday July 23 midnight Geneva time.

The winner will receive a special VC iPad2 engraved with the NY boutique logo and featuring the new VC iPad application to be launched soon

Are the names part of the current line-up or will VC add some ?

Historiques Chrometre Royale 1907

Teaser 1 is for me a Wristwatch edition of the 1917 Pocket watch Chronograph dedicated to the "Corps of Engineers USA" which was produced in 3289 pieces.

Very nice idea.

Cheers,

Liger

the chronograph pocket watch was also created in Historical line in 1917 as a Military  3 hands wrist watch for WW1 with cushion case to give a precise and quick reading time (Hour,Minutes,Seconds)

Cheers,

Liger

could be named
07/18/2011 - 17:01

"Historique American 1917" with crown at 3H and subdial second at 6H based on the current 1921 model.

I will love it.smiley... and wait to discover the 2 otherscheeky

Cheers,

Liger

Re: could be named
07/22/2011 - 19:19

NY Boutique of the "Historique American" based on current 1921 model with dial and hands inspired from 1917 model.

I am not sure that VC will change the 4400 calibre inside to be closer to the original model with a subsecond at 6 marker.

Cheers,

Liger 

I so want the iPad but it would be SO unethical for me to play....
07/18/2011 - 18:48

at least until the press releases come out on the 22nd..... ;-)

Bill

My guess would be...
07/18/2011 - 18:57

that it is a Boutique version of the Historiques American 1921.

Best,

Mike

Re: My guess would be...
07/19/2011 - 12:04
I guess it has to be something obvious like - Historiques American 1921'New York'.
Re: VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1
07/18/2011 - 19:08

"CORPS OF ENGINEERS. U.S.A." !!

Engraved "CORPS OF ENGINEERS U.S.A" and its number are impressive.

Can't wait to see the iPad app! Won't guess because
07/18/2011 - 22:29
I came across a press release online that seems to spill the beans ;)
Re: VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1
07/18/2011 - 23:14

This will be "Boutique" only version, limited to 12 pieces, of the American 1921 with the difference being the original name on the dial was Vacheron & Constantin & sub second dial @ the 6 marker.

OK I'll take it. nt

07/19/2011 - 10:35

The dial will look very good in the chronometer royal 1907 ....
07/19/2011 - 16:56
However with those hands,it will look even better in the les historiques american 1921

Boutique version of the Historiques American 1921

Tempting
07/19/2011 - 08:51

Hi Alex,

I would say that it is a Vacheron Constantin Historiques Chronomètre Royal 1907.

I see it with a black dial, black printed numerals and white gold hands.

Best regards

Dje

My guess....
07/19/2011 - 09:44

A special boutique version of the Historiques American 1921... I'm very, very curious to see this one when it is launched!!

So very Vacheron...
07/19/2011 - 10:29

to reach deep into its original and vintage designs and transform it into a  modern piece. And this being the first American boutique the watch couldn't be any other than Historiques American 1921. I wonder how limited the edition will be...

I can settle with an enlarged print of this photo.
07/19/2011 - 10:48
My guess is: Historiques American 1921.With the original numbers and hands.
Re: I can settle with an enlarged print of this photo.
07/23/2011 - 18:25
Boutique New York exclusive ofcourse.

First, congratulations to VC on thier new maison in New York. Second, I could very much use an Ipad.

For some reason, the hands on the watch made me think of spades and diamonds, which I extrapulated in the New York context to where gambling is an art form, giving us the Historiques American 1921 Wall Street Edition.

Best to all.

Is it Historiques America 1921 with a different dial?
07/19/2011 - 14:22

Saw the pic of original version made in that era...laugh

My Guess for Teaser 1

Hi Alex,

My guess is a special edition of the Historiques American 1921.

Look forward to the next one..

07/19/2011 - 16:52

Hi Alex,

I think this is the Boutique version of the Historiques Chrometre Royal 1907

Thanks,

Joseph

Alex,
07/19/2011 - 18:17

The 1921 American makes more sense, given that it is an NYC Boutique.

You can withdraw my answer in any case. I already have an iPad2 cool

Thanks,

Joseph

This is quite obviously
07/19/2011 - 22:50

harder than normal competitions where you simply have to know how to log on and press 'send'...

It is clearly a very nice American 1921 for the lucky Americans of NYC (and environs).

When are you opening the London (Bond St) Boutique? Have you bought the plot/lease yet from the Duke of Westminster?

Just to be clear
07/20/2011 - 12:53

Historiques American 1921

wouldn't want a technicality to get in the way of adding the iPad2 VC to my growing VC Apple collection....

Re: VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1
07/20/2011 - 09:43

Hello Alex!

My guess: American 1921 NY Edition, collection Historique.

Hopefully j'ai deviné juste; plein d'espoir, j'attend que mon nom sorte du chapeau... Wait and see.

Best Regards,

Manoël.

Re: VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1
07/20/2011 - 19:03

It appears to be the Historique American 1921 with the original dial numbering style(oulined and possibly luminous inside the middle of the numbers like the original),  and it might have the second hand at the 6 pm position.  This looks to be a very nice watch!  Looking forward to the opening and the next time I am in New York.

Historique American 1921

Re: VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1
07/20/2011 - 22:52

Historique American 1921, I'm sure, in line with the original produced 90 years ago.

Best,

Re: VC NY boutique contest: guess the watches and win a VC iPad: teaser 1
07/21/2011 - 12:37

I would say a special edition of the Historiques American 1921.

It's "Historiques American 1921".

But at first, I think it's "CORPS OF ENGINEERS. U.S.A.".
