  1. 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

  2. Useless layout. When I am in my car, I look at the clock. Expensive watch that offers little.

  3. I need a watch depicting a different sexual position at each hour marker. ????????

  4. 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.

  5. Seems like this would be more comfortable to glance at even when not driving

  6. Pure class. History and horology over hype. Love Vacheron, the blue dial Overseas is my favourite.

  7. One of the most beautiful pieces out there… just adorable ????????????❤️❤️❤️

  8. 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.

  9. 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 ????????

  10. This is honestly such a practical angle when you think about it
