I have a picture of 2 Vacheron Historique, both are ref 47101. I do not think theres a right or wrong answer because both are beautiful, but would like to hear others opinions. BTW if it appears the black dial is larger, its because it is. The black dial is 37mm while the silver dial is 36mm in diameter. Also the black dial has a guilocche in the center and the silver dial does not.
