What a great watch that is. Is it correct that lot no 137 from The Quarter Millenium of Vacheron constantin is a similar watch but with a different dial? It is a lot of different forms and shapes V&C have managed to put into that case. I have often been looking at it in the auction catalog and still it’s a watch that I find quite challenging to look at and to comprehend. I have found out that sometimes when a watch case is more organic, it does not always show its true nature on a picture where it is presented alone, however when wearing it on the arm then it suddenly comes alive interacting with the shapes of the arm. If you can follow what I mean do you then think that this is the case with this watch? I can’t post an asymmetrical watch since I don’t have one, but I do find them find quite intriguing. Yours sincerely KBS
Looks fabulous on your arm.

The photo from the side is just amazing. What a wealth of forms and shapes. Seems like some casemaker at V&C back in the thirties had a great day on the job. Thanks for taking the time to take those extra pics. Yours sincerely KBS
Nice pics, Berny!

I agree, Bob! I also saw it at VC in Geneva last January. Seeing it in New York inspired me to open my wallet. Joseph
