And they bash Seiko for their crooked dials.
One of my grail watches. I love everything about this watch
He’s got this wrong, the rotated dial is called a Montgomery Dial, Boxcar Dial and a few others based on manufacturer, but generally called a Railroad Dial and was for locomotive engineers as it let them keep track of time without removing or moving their hands from the steam/pressure controls or while working on the engine that previous pocket and early wrist watches made difficult and was meant to be readable in adverse conditions. Same reason we have chronographs, for the railroad, not cars. No one driving is checking time or pacing using their watch or the watches tachymeter, and co-pilots used to use several pocket watches with their lager faces that also allowed them to write while pacing. VC didn’t invent this, and then calling it a drivers watch is laughable, especially since that’s why most cars have on board clocks like Porsche and the like. C’mon Teddy, you know better, the history is far too rich when it come to railroads and watches to post something like this. For this watch to work as a drivers watch your left hand would need to be over at the 3 o’clock position
Why doesn't the small seconds have the same offset?
Useless layout. When I am in my car, I look at the clock. Expensive watch that offers little.
I need a watch depicting a different sexual position at each hour marker. 😂😂
Who gives a flying f$&k
I… LOVE IT!!
I believe Longines has a similar one.
Vacheron Constatin Overseas is my dream watch….on day 😍
A piece of history.
Welp! As a car buff, that would be a reason to aspire to own one.
Just love this
Is it made to be worn on the underside of the wrist? If I am driving I will not see the "normal" side of my wrist without turning my wrist.
Longines has a very similar one..!!
Seems like this would be more comfortable to glance at even when not driving
Very cool. To bad wasn't poorboy version lol
a brilliant revival of an old collection 👏
Pure class. History and horology over hype. Love Vacheron, the blue dial Overseas is my favourite.
Nightmare for lefties
One of the most beautiful pieces out there… just adorable 👏👏👏❤️❤️❤️
agree with Pacific Time. would love a lefty version. Longines also has a watch with a crooked dial. I may be wrong but I think it costs less than the VC, haha.
Hallo teddy, I love vacheron constantine, I love this Model and now I also know why it was designed like that,brilliant,. Thanks you love from Switzerland 🇨🇭
My grandfather have this watch,
This is honestly such a practical angle when you think about it
It’s look awesome and it’s unique in its elegance. Luce increíble y es único en su elegancia. 👌👌
Wouldn't you have to put the watch on your right hand if your hands are between 10 & 2?
Wish they had a lefty version… 😢
This is in the top three grail watches for me!
Love the uniqueness & elegance of it!!
This is on my Mt Rushmore of watches
I've got one of these and it's a beautiful watch, but the 'driver's watch' explanation doesn't hold up if you actually try wearing it whilst driving, and that's generally considered an apocryphal story. The other explanation is the 'preacher's watch', but frankly I think they just did it because it looks cool in a sort of Daliesque way. But the one thing that really irritates me is the sub-seconds dial is aligned with the regular 12 o'clock position, making the whole thing inconsistent. The original version from 1919 with the sub-seconds at the offset 6 o'clock and correctly aligned is way cooler though.
how can i know if my watch is legit?
It is supposed to be worn on your right wrist? The orientation seems backward to me.
