To all the guys who could help me !!

1991 this watch was sold at Antiquorum.

My catalogues only goes back to 1994,

some meters...,

befor that they probably thought I couldn't afford.

This piece I probably would not have afford at that time,

and now, never even dream of To all the guys who could help me !!

We talked about worldtimers below.

Cottier was the Master and made every  one of PP's,

which their " museum" probably buys at this silly prices,

and someone others,

caught in the hysteria.

But it's no more PP than a Tag Heuer,

or any other watch,

that doesn't produce the movement at all To all the guys who could help me !!

Anyhow Cottier produced ONE (!) wristwatch for Vacheron,

exactly the same as PP's overpriced....

It's Ref number is 6213 and was produced in 1957 and sold 1991 at Antiquorum in Geneva.

I don't remeber if I seen at The VC museum....

To all the guys who could help me !!

Alex showed it in my post below about Cottier, but my question is,

could anyone tell me what the price was that it went for,

you get your name in the preface of The Book To all the guys who could help me !!

Sorry, Doc

My references only go back to 1994 as well.

I have the same photo in the German book that you show but unfortunately not the 1991 catalogue.

Antiquorum itself should have it in their archives.

You might try Agnieska Leki (Buyer and Vendor Assistant) at the Geneva office (aleki@antiquorum.com).

That was October 20 1991. I must also say that Fabio was really helpfull and searched at the archives since they don't have the 1991 data in their computer. Thank's again.

Brilliant George! Only one comment, in 1991 there were no Euros! maybe

he was giving price in CHF? In any event the origibal owner did a good thing keeping it I can only imagine the price it could go for today!!!

Fabio said Euros but perhaps he was converting from CHF to help me. He sure did good.
