Another question

Hi, I saw on the web a "Vacheron - Constantin Genève" wristwatch, square, white gold case close to a Cartier model with a caliber 1001 and a case by European Watch and clock C° Inc France !!. Strange isn't ?. Best regards. Patrice.
wierd because as far as I know European Watch and Clock only made

the original Cal. 1001 in a VC and the modified in my wife's Cartier!

Here you also can see what a Geneva Seal means Cheers Doc

WOW Doc the shock protection of your 1001 is in the form of a Maltese

You're right about the Geneva Seal Doc. Look closely at the bridges for some really nice chamfered edges (anglage) and on the regulator needle. Really impressive hand work. Joseph

you could take this dial from belonging to another brand, PP. But as always PP came later with this design, or ? I wonder why they stopped with those rings, probably because the supply of choice is reduced, through that it's only a few makers of shock protections. Anyhow a d--d good looking watch you have there Joseph! Doc

Thank you, my friend. Perhaps it is a question we should ask in January in Geneva ?? Regards, Joseph

Wow, that is impressive, but I have a question. I thought that black dials were not done back then, is it original? Did V & C do many black dials? I can only think of one that was on a chronograph that was truly an original black dial. Linden
black dials are rare but existed at the time (nt)
