18 months of trainning is requested to be able to do this...

As the Swiss watchmaking schoold no longer teach high end finish, VC has set up an internal training program for movement finish and it takes 18 months of training to be able to do internal bevelling like the ones found in the cal 1400!

18 months x 4 weeks x 5 days x 5 hours

It is wonderful to see...

that VC is trying to preserve the art of high-end finishing.  It would be a real shame if those skills get lost in this boom period to produce as many watches as possible.  It is the old argument of quality over quantity...

150 months to become a specialist in medicine

We must never forget that the most complicated,

is the human person.

Especially some girls

out, i would have taken it for granted that the finishing is good just seeing the 2nd pic, but the sharp bends are something else with yr emphasis, it is excellent !

impressive, I can only appreciate more what VC does and applaud their

efforts in movement finish. I couldn't fathom it would take so much time and effort!
