Some of you will remember me from November 2012, when I started a discussion about my heirloom minute repeater PW. Well, I'm back.
Another Vacheron Constantin watch has turned up among my Dutch father's possessions. As we know nothing about its family history and we cannot identify who the "JES" monogram belonged to, we may or may not want to keep the watch, so I will be trying to gauge its interest to collectors.
I'm no expert but it appears to be a pocket watch conversion, with rather clumsy lugs soldered on and maybe a replacement winding stem. It does work and still keeps time remarkably well. The case measures about 30mm.
I realize this is not as interesting as the precious heirloom I presented 3 years ago but any information you can provide would be well-appreciated. I'd like to learn how best to describe it, when it was made, what interest it might have to collectors, etc.
