After some hours through these auctioncatalogues !
I found this book/catalogue
And there it is 1887..............
This book/catalogue from 1994 is a bit more read,
And as you see Vacheron&Constantin was first,
As you see Vacheron&Constantin registrated it's trade mark 7 years before PP, had to do a bad copy.
This is what I have against PP, always making copies, sometimes, even I must admitt,
perhaps more elegant in workmanship,
but never first in design or ideas.
I think this is significant, if they should chose a symbol, why a cross ??
Why not anything else, a crown like Rolex, no, always looking at the big brother,
Vacheron&Constantin..lack of imagination
Yep, my heart beats for Vacheron&Constantin, but not just of emotinal, or principal reasons,
this is what I will illustrate with this little post
