What kind of VC watch do I have? PICS!

hHey guys, I have this beautiful Vacheron&Constantin watch. It is vintage as you can see, and is a real beauty. I really do not know much about this watch, and I am trying to figure out how old it is and what the value on it is too. All the complications on it work perfectly and it keeps great time! it is also a stem wind and everything is set by using the stem rather than pulling the crown out. Anyways, I was told this is a circa 1945, but the movement on this watch looks older to me? maybe from the 1910s I guess? Anyhow, if anyone can help me find out mroe about this watch I would appreciate it (BTW, I looked for a serial number and couldnt find one anywhere, maybe it is hidden inside the movement)What kind of VC watch do I have?

Thanks for the info, and thanks for confirming its real! Anyways, would anyone happen to know the monetary value of this watch?? as I am trying to sell it unfortunately because bills to pay is a priority over even the most beautiful watch :( And I do not want to advertise it for a price way off its value both over or under... I am trying to get $12.5k for it, would you guys happen to know if this is too much or too little? Thanks.

Sorry, That was a typo on my part. (it was late when I responded) It should have said NOT A REAL VC! It is possible, as Berny said that its a recased movement...maybe, but the rest is definitly NOT VC. JB

I looked at the pic of the movement again. I don't really thing its genuine either. It looks quite crude compared to what a genuine VC movement looks like.

You should go to an auction house to have it appraised. This watch was recased and therefore I am not sure it will draw a lot of interest.

months in sort-of French (mispellings) and days in Spanish - - I've never seen that before. It's gotta be real valuable. Robert

Guys, I really appreciate the info. I mean, I saw the pics, but that really doesnt conclude that this is fake, or does it? So are you all telling me that this is 100% fake VC watch and a complete replica? I really hope not? is there any hope that it could be real? 
Sorry, it is not a VC, no hope.
