What is this watch model or reference number?


Recently I have found a one of old Vacheron Constantin in our family jewellery box and Now I do need to check its authenticity and the exact model/ reference number. I am living in Sri Lanka, where no VC agent. If any expert there please help me to solve this.
how to find out this watch's current value?

Regrettably, it does not look like a genuine Vacheron. nosad

Certainly.

The photos do make it difficult but quite simply, Vacheron never made a watch which looked like yours.

Although the dial does have a resemlance to the skeletonized VC watches, the details show it not to be a Vacheron.

Even more glaring is the back which is a complete fraud. Vacheron never ever made a rotor like the one in your watch. That is the real giveaway. The real watch is a manual wind and not an automatic.

The photos preclude assessment of details because the quality is not optimal.

Furthermore, your watch is a chrongraph, but the buttons on the side are not those of Vacheron either.

Here is a photo of the real thing. You can see other images by doing a search. You can find many images on-line.

Thanks, Robert.

I used to own one just like it but found that I could no longer read it, so I sent it of to a new home. smileycrying

Thanks for the explanation, Joseph.  I was trying to find one.  I was trying to decide whether it was a chronograph with no pushers or whether it was a calendar without a 12 o'clock subdial.  And yeah, the rotor did look off.  A great educational analysis.  Thank you.

My pleasure, Jamie

You can see the pushers in the first photo but they look like little nubbins, very non-VC!

I believe the movement is the same as in the 47101 (PT with salmon dial) They are both part of the Historiques line.

But the engraving, front and back are stunning.

Best,

Joseph
