Vignette       - This wonderful 18038 dates back to 1978 and is in beautiful vintage  condition.  The case remains well proportioned with rich and even lugs.  The gold has aged to a beautiful rosy color. Now to the highlight of this watch. The case is fitted with a Red Vignette Diamond dial, also called degrade dial because of the degrading color in the middle of the dial which becomes darker towards the edge of the dial. The lacquer used for these dials is similar to the one used for Stella dials and there is a special technique how the degrade look is achieved. With Stella dials becoming very rare the Vignette dials are still in a very reasonable price range. The color on this one is sheer amazing.  This is the kind of watch which is your companion on a nice cigar evening.
