What kind of fool am I, that I should fall in love...

if you know this song you're just as old and hopefully not as foolish.

I have issues with readng dials, but it doesn't stop me from the same sins.

I have fallen in love, again, with another Vacheron I know I can't read:

YG Les Historiques Chronograph #47101/4-47111. Ok, how crazy am I?

To be honest,

I have always seemed you a bit crazy !

But now you are talking...

That's not foolish,

Hi Miki,

I do not think you are so crazy, as it is a real wonderful piece, working perfectly like mine, and really in the mind of VC!

crazy??? you're finally making sens :-) The Chronograph Historique has

been discontinued for 3 years and it is already become a classic!

Go for it and don't look back

It's a great watch to have

Hi Miki!

I know a dealer who has a brand new (NIB/ never worn) model you're talking about.

If you wish to get in touch with them let me know.



Hi Miki, you are not the only one ...

It's indeed a great piece, great from every point of view:

You probably have seen these pictures, but I just want to share with you the supreme joy of owing this beauty!

I only own 2 vacherons the 1st is brand new and the 2nd is more my age (made in the 40's I believe). Lately I have become more interested in them all over again.

I just died and went to heaven! Drop dead gorgeous! For me VC made the
10/31/2007 - 19:12

most beautiful vintage chrononographs.

Very very Nice chronograph!

Thank you one and all, however asking this fourm about "that" watch is a little bias and the responses were expected.

You all realize that I would also have to carry my old Patek half-hunter pocket watch so I would know what time it is.

This certainly meets what everyones highest standards of "buying what speaks to you the most" as I sure can't see it.

Now the ungentlemanly part of any deal, what do I pay for it? I'm looking at a pre-owned 95% from a honest dealer.

I would be greatful for your input via PM, of course. Best, Miki  P.S. This one really sings all my favorite oldies to me!

PM sent. (nt)
