To be one hell of a statement from VC. Just my feeling. And probably a piece for which one would have to sell and mortgage everything.
Bridge to a new in-house chrono caliber? Cal.1731-any historical link?

Thus a pretty significant designation for a new caliber, no? 
It's a bomb, Robert

And this coming from a quick peek at a piece that was still under development and its movement wasn't finished at all. Let me tell you, considering your recent musings on VCs this very piece will be very much to your liking ;-)

Of Jean Marc VAcheron, then I guess this is poised to be a monumental piece.

Most references state that Jean-Marc Vacheron was indeed born in 1731, but the day and month to properly celebrate this event remains unknown.  Even the Societe Genevoise de Genealogie appears to have incorrect information... To add another twist, according to The Saga of Vacheron Constantin (Antiquorum 1994), J-M was born in Lugnorre, Fribourg.  Unfortunately the cantonal records of Fribourg, while acknowleging the Vacheron family name, are silent on details of any sort sad. ietTe Genevoise de Gene
