The new VC Quai de L’Ile in stainless steel is the entry-level model in Vacheron Constantin’s current catalogue. Priced at $23,200, the Quai de L’Ile Ref. 4500S is about a third the price of its gold brethren in the same collection. When it was first launched in 2008, the series was designed as a highly customisable timepiece that would be harder to counterfeit. Its latest iteration does not offer such bells and whistles, but nonetheless has plenty of its own merits.
