a good question, Janek... one we asked and pondered around here on...
09/04/2008 - 00:20

many occasions To me Vacheron Constantin has many faces or rather iconic models... Too many as considered by some - taking too many directions before the 250th anniversary celebration in 2005- when the brand was reborn and put back on the right track. I really love the variety of Vacheron Constantin product offer. IMHO, that's what makes it special and interesting... unlike Patek with just one representative model: Calatrava or AP with Royal Oak/Royal Oak Offshore. Back on the subject, my VC iconic watches are: 1. Patrimony line in general (especially Patrimony Contemporaine) 2. Toledo as a reinterpretation of the original Cioccolatone 3.  any VC manual chronograph (Chronographe Historique or Malte Chrono)  4. I believe Jubilee 1755 has already become a face of VC

5. I truly admire recent concepts VC has come up with in the last 2-3 years. I think QdI and Les Masques have the greatest potential to become stars in the VC collection and join the iconic club

What do other Loungers think on that?

+1 for the "Chronographe Historique" (nt)

What other model can be superceeded (Malte Chrono) and remain so coveted?
This is an interesting question...

Your question, "Which VC Watch is to be considered the face of the VC brand?" suggests that you are looking forward to the future of the manufacture.  If that is correct, then I would suggest that the Quai de l"ile might be an appropriate choice.  It possesses a high level of innovation and is clearly a major focus for the brand.  Therefore, we can expect a significant amount of marketing resources to be expended on this watch/product line.  As it very contemporary for VC and is also reasonably attainable from a price perspective, I think it holds broad appeal in the market.  These points lead me to think that the Quai de l'Ile may be the "face" of the manufacture for at least the next few years. Just my two cents worth... Cheers, Duncan
Absolutely agree, Duncan...

if we are talking the future of VC QdI is destined to become the star of the collection. such a modern and masculine watch...
difficult question because VC has many faces from the

classical Patrimony to the more arts oriented Masques and Explorateurs, to the avant guarde QDI and not to forget the fantastic guillochage. I think the face of VC is somewhere in between
I'm with you on this one

VC has so many iconic models in each of its collections, that it would be very hard to choose one that stands out more than the others... And IMO this as a good thing! If you really pushed me for an answer, I would say that for me, this is the face of VC:

Fascinating question on brand identification.  Just as the cal. 96 Calatrava flashes across my thoughts when I hear Patek, I found an image of the Mercator came to mind when I read your post!  Perhaps that is because the Mercator was the watch that caught my attention when I first became aware of the brand?  If so, then the "face" of VC is as individual as we are.
Hard question...

... For my part I would say the Toledo, a shape and a recognizable and unique style!
