I may quickly be acquiring a Vacheron and Constantin watch and would like to know if anybody is familiar with the design or can tell me if it looks genuine or refinished. My educated guess would be that is is refinished, since there is no "swiss" at the bottom.
The caliber seems to be a 466. Usually I see 466/3b's. The straight 466 doesn't come along too often, it seems.
As a second question, I was wondering if you could estimate the cost Vacheron would charge to completely restore the watch. I couldn't afford a $2,000 restoration, nor would I if I could. It's just rediculous! But I also want the dial looking good again, ideally like original, and not bauched by a third party watchmaker.
