Scans of one of my favorite chronographs

The VC ref 6087 made in only 28 pieces in the 50s, bull horn with screw back case.

I love it and wish VC would produce a similar model for their newly reborn Historiques line.

The price of this model has also been growing steadily. Just for info in April 2005 at the Quarter Millenium auction held by Antiquorum a piece was sold for CHF 86k (approc $80k), a year later Antiquorum sold one for CHF 118k (approx $95k) and at their Nov 2006 auction the model of which I post scans of sold for CHF 141k (approx $114)

Hi Alex,

By the way what do you mean by reborn "Historique" line?

Thanks a lot for these pics.

In the 90s VC had a line called les Historiques where the

models were replicas of past pieces. Late 90s-early 2000 the model line was dropped and has been rebord recently. For the moment it only includes the Toledo 1952
