April 4, 12 16:28 Yes, the referencing system changes make this a confusing period.  What is interesting to me, Dean is that the Dual Time version you show above (from what year?) has the PDLF laurel engraved on the back.  I had assumed that only the first series of watches produced in 1972 might have come with this engraving. 



This image from Secrets of Vacheron provides a concise, albeit incomplete, summary of the 1972 (note all three listed as ladies watches):

To add to the confusion, this example from Treasures of Vacheron Constantin indicates that the caliber is1052.  The description is also interesting in that it describes the original series as a limited edition accompanied by a special lithograph by Jean Carzou.  Wouldn't it be something to find a complete set with the watch and the lithograph?!?!?
 




I am willing to bet that the dual time PDLF has a double movement as the following two non-PDLF references do (also from Treasures of Vacheron Constantin):
