Antique Vacheron Constantin Mahogany Box

I have a pretty little mahogany box with what appears to be an ivory or bone cartouche on the top..the inside of the box has a frayed purple silk pad in the top that says Vacheron & Constantin, Geneva, VeC??? Vacheron & Co. Successors. The fraying makes the Constantin part very difficult to make out. Whatever fitting was in the bottom of the box is missing.
The box is about 5" by 3 1/2" by 1 1/4 inches. It opens by pushing a brass button which releases two brass pins in the lid.
I'd like to know how old the box is and what it might have contained...I've read the company history...but I'm unsure.
Thanks for any assistance.
do you have a scan? It is most probably a pocket watch box (nt)
